It’s Time For a Weekly Enes Kanter Update

Somehow, Enes Kanter signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics this offseason is, like, the 19th most exciting thing that has happened to him this summer.

Over the past week or two specifically, Kanter has been checking off boxes from every corner of the Internet. Let’s check out what one our more interesting former Wildcats has been up to lately.

In late July, Kanter and The Score teamed up for a 25-minute documentary in which the 6-foot-11 giant gives the WWE a shot.

It was only one year ago that Kanter was meeting The Undertaker. Now look at him. I feel like a proud parent.

He’s also been helping out on the set of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and posted some pictures and videos with a few of the stars.

As a fan of the show, I can not wait to see how they incorporate him.

Kanter has still found time to show love to his new team and teammate, Kemba Walker, too, through the newest edition of the NBA2k series.

How much sponsorship money has this dude made in just the last three months? Any guesses?

Then, to top it all off, Kanter was torched on defense by Miss California 2018 after falling for a deadly pump fake.

Bank is open. James Harden would likely agree that she did not travel.

Lastly, Kanter took part in an interview with Hoops Hype‘s Alex Kennedy in late July that is worth the time to read. He opens up about the Celtics, how he’s improving his game, his issues with his home country of Turkey, and several other great Kanter tidbits. He says he wants to be the voice for the innocent.

Oh yeah, he’s also nearly hit his mark of hosting 40 free basketball camps throughout the summer, something that he promised earlier in the year.

We need to keep talking about how great of a guy Enes Kanter is.

    Could we take a poll and see if anyone really cares about Enes?
