Enes Kanter Can't Get Outta Milwaukee Fast Enough

The NBA can be a real bitch sometimes.

Enes Kanter knows this all too well after having experienced the tortures of the damned in Milwaukee.

The affable New York Knick had a truly awful sequence in the fourth quarter of an eventual 112-96 loss.

There's a lot to unpack here, so pay attention.


What we didn't see was the elbow that our friend absorbed from the Bucks' Thon Maker that would eventually require multiple stitches.

However, we did see the forearm shiver delivered by Kanter to the face of leading MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, which led to that fun little exchange between the two of them.


Kanter was officially ejected after he left the court to get that pesky cut looked at, and as a result, was genuinely surprised at this development when informed later during a post-game interview.


Dude's good people.


Despite the rough evening, the big man was kind enough to cut an inpromptu PSA, looking directly into the camera and imploring the kids to respect the refs.

Kanter had even lost his starting gig to someone named Luke Kornet this very night, so his good humor was quite heroic.

He was kinda pissed about being shoved by Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham during the altercation with the Greek Freak, though.

So was injured teammate Kristaps Porzingis.


There's nothing worse than a handsy assistant coach.
