Enes Kanter stirred the NBA pot during an appearance on Colin Cowherd’s radio show today.
Cowherd said he heard Kanter believes Zion Williamson is overrated, and when asked if that is the case, Kanter owned up to it and brought another former Wildcat into the conversation with a comparison.
Kanter said, “I kind of feel like he is overhyped. I feel like he is Julius Randle with hops.”
“Some players are scared to say it,” he added, “but you know me, I’m not scared to say anything.”
Oh boy. Hear it for yourself:
In case you didn’t listen, Kanter went on to say Williamson can be a Hall of Famer if he adds a jump shot.
Once Julius Randle caught wind of the comments, he quickly reminded Kanter that he had 45 the last time they met.
Yo @EnesKanter last time you guarded me I had 45 relax bro lol

I can’t pile on Kanter like everyone else because I wrote this on KSR the night of the NBA draft lottery: “Williamson is Julius Randle without gravity. Left-handed and all.” Thank you to Enes for standing with me on this lonely hill.
