Everyone’s favorite zero-and-done player, Enes Kanter, is celebrating his 26th birthday today! After being ruled permanently ineligible prior to his first season at Kentucky, Kanter has remained loyal to the Kentucky program in his time in the NBA.
While he may be known for his ongoing social media feud with LeBron James, Kanter has quietly turned into a really solid NBA big man. This season was the best of his career, averaging 14.1 points and 11 rebounds, while shooting nearly 85% from the free throw line for the New York Knicks.
He had a coming out party on Christmas Day against the Philadelphia 76ers, as he totaled 31 points, 22 rebounds, and 7/8 from the charity stripe.
Big Blue Nation, go wish our favorite Turk a happy birthday on Twitter @Enes_Kanter!
