Kanter's Knees

Unread postby JJN » Tue May 31, 2011 5:59 pm

Per DX's Twitter page:

NBA Combine medical examination results are slowly trickling out. We must proceed w/caution, but appears Enes Kanter's knee checked out fine

Internet reports indicated that Enes Kanter has bad knees. It appears that they were unsubstantiated. Not a nice thing to speculate about...


Potentially great news for us. Also appears that Vala's buyout terms are at a standstill.

Kanter's Jazz workout today.

You know, the team he was going to refuse playing for... ::doh::

So much fun came out of that combine. The most intriguing being the leaks and mechinations of Kanter's camp.

Are you guys still high on Kanter? I'm hoping we get him at four.

I still like Kanter a lot.

At this point sources have informed me that OJ is watching Kanter Porn nightly and has at least two Kanter Posters on his ceiling above his bed.

Now that I know Kanter is actually center-sized and doesn't have bad knees, I'm much higher on him. Would still like to have a larger resume to work with, but he at least has the physical portion of things down. I don't know if the Jazz go Knight or Kanter. They have a crowded front-court already, and not much in the back, but who knows in this draft.

I'm still higher on Vala than most of the folks here too though. I think, especially with Irving running pick'n'rolls, that he is a great option (he scored or got fouled on something like 70% of pick and roll plays). He also looks to be a fantastic rebounder, having the highest rebound rate per minute in the Euroleague.

I don't know is he is/will be better than Kanter in the NBA, but I don't think he is a bad consolation prize by any stretch.

I don't think Kanter is there at 4 unless someone absolutely falls in love with Knight (either Utah, or maybe a Toronto trades up).

I'd post a bunch of Bleacher Report blogs, but I don't think we need anymore proof to back up e0's statement.

So I found something else, perhaps a bit more respectable the BR, maybe not.
