Enes Kanter was a fan-favorite at Kentucky despite never playing one minute as a Wildcat. Now eight years into his NBA career, he’s about to be a fan-favorite once again – without even playing a game.
Kanter and the Boston Celtics recently agreed to a 2-year, $10 million deal to join Kemba Walker in replacing Kyrie Irving (signed in Brooklyn) and Al Horford (signed in Philadelphia). Not even a few days after his introductory press conference, Kanter is already in love with his new home.

In the video, Kanter gives a little tour of Boston’s newly built facility. He shows off the never-ending row of championship Celtics banners and sums it all up by saying “I’m loving this place”.
Kanter has already gotten off to a good start in Boston and with the local fans. Whether he’s cheering on Tom Brady, throwing shade at Irving, or professing his love to a city he just moved to, Kanter knows how to please the people.
He was also spotted playing pickup with children in a full Celtics uniform.
