Enes Kanter is Doing His Best to Distract Us From the NBA’s Hiatus

Enes Kanter is one of the most interesting and entertaining characters the NBA has to offer – and I mean that in a good way.

There aren’t many people in professional sports – or even the public eye – that is as outgoing and influential and advocative as Kanter is. Now that NBA’s hiatus has suspended the rest of his season with the Boston Celtics, the former Kentucky Wildcat has to find new ways to entertain himself.

He’s been sharing random videos and memes on the Internet for everyone to enjoy (and let out a tiny chuckle). For Kanter, basketball NEVER stops, not even during a global pandemic.

*I’m like 99 percent sure that isn’t Kanter, but even still, the Lysol spray at the end of the clip was a nice touch.*

Kanter’s teammates don’t seem to be missing hanging out with the big man, though.

This has been Kanter’s “thing” for a while now, and I’m glad he’s doing it. A native of Turkey, Kanter has never been one to hold back on the social issues happening not just in his home country, but in the United States and stretching across the globe. But even when he is addressing serious issues, Kanter always finds a way to sneak in some humor that makes the situation just a bit less tense.
