Enes Kanter Kissed The Floor After Entering A Game For The First Time In A Week...And Almost Immediately Proceeded To Shoot An Air-Ball
I'll tell you what, as embarrassing as it to do the offensive equivalent of slapping the floor only to get your ankles tangled faster than a pair of pocketed headphones, I think Enes Kanter actually made a pretty compelling case for more playing time in doing so. Say what you want about his limitations as the type of defensive liability that's all-but-introduced the concept of a powerplay to the sport of basketball, but - just judging off that hilarious clip alone - I can't think of anyone who has better grasp of the Knicks' priorities this season.
Granted, he doesn't exactly fit the criteria of a young, developing player with a lot to gain from piling up the playing time while his team tanks, but he sure knows how to have a little bit of fun while doing a whole lot of losing. Gaining experience is important, but let's not overlook the importance of entertainment value. Just listen to that crowd...
Surely Enes Kanter has made enough of a commitment to creating the latter to get some garbage time minutes. Hell, even if he hasn't, there has literally never been a time better than right...about...NOW...for the Knicks to do whatever is necessary to offer their fans some comic relief, assuming delirium-inducing drugs are out of the question...
