    Here's what Dime Magazine is saying about Toronto..

    http://dimemag.com/2009/07/accept-it...ket-franchise/
    The Raptors have a massive online following, and sites like Dime and Hoopsworld will always write these shit-disturbing articles to get cheap hits. I've learnt to ignore it over the last decade. Even if Toronto is a small-market team, Kanter is in no position to be picky about where he's going. It sounds like the hype around him is getting to his head. He's acting pretty high and mighty for a guy that sat around twiddling his thumbs since being ruled ineligible to play.

    as I have said numerous times on this board - his agent has been hiding him since that one game at the nike summit. He drank 9 rebulls and preformed better than expected. This guy is totally over rated. Drafting him would be a huge mistake. He has done nothing and I mean nothing to show he would even dominate the NCAA (which he also did not show up to play in)
    Yes, you have said this before. And much like you accuse Kanter of doing, you hid afterwards. Sorry, couldn't resist that.

    What you're saying is that Kanter agent, even before he was his agent, convinced the NCAA to ban Kanter so he wouldn't be able to play. Is that what you're saying? And when exactly did Kanter's agent BECOME his agent? Please explain those two facts to me.

    Or it's a 19 year old kid who's doing what his dumbass agent tells him to do. Or it's not true at all.

    Why do people insist on jumping to conclusions based on pretty much no evidence?

    Conclusions are part of the fun


    If Kanter does not like the press he will correct, otherwise u have to go with the source... these days, around the draft a lot of speculation, and rumours have some basis in fact. I am not saying this one does, I hope it doesn't but if that is the vibe being felt by some, its in Kanter's best interest to clear it up or roll with it.

    Tim, unless Kanter's main diet growing up was retard juice, he should know better than to decline/piss off anybody at this early stage of his career. Agent or no-agent.

    Not only are your conclusions completely bogus, you have them in the completely wrong order. He played in the professional league (unpaid, except for expenses) BEFORE he went to high school in the US. He then was banned by the NCAA and appealed, all the while practicing with the team and attending classes at Kentucky. After the appeal was rejected, he became a student assistant coach for the team.

    Do you really have this little regard for the truth? Really?

    We don't even know the whole story!! I'm not saying Kanter doesn't not want to play in Toronto. Maybe he doesn't. My point is that none of us know a goddamn thing, yet everything has already come to a conclusion on the matter.

    This reminds me exactly of when that completely unsubstantiated rumour came out that Bosh stiffed the Boys and Girls Club of thousands of dollars he promised them and everyone took that at face value and blasted him. Then, of course, it turned out that wasn't true.

    How hard is it just to remain neutral until you have all the facts? Are people really that infected with Glen Beckitis that they HAVE to believe everything bad they hear?

    Here it is from the horses mouth himself, saying that the team that drafts him is secondary to being in the league.

    [0:51] "It doesn't matter what team... I am just going to try to do my best... show myself to everybody" - Enes Kanter

    Obviously he's not going to say "I'm not going to play for ...".

    You know what messed up about Enes Kanter, he has the same wingspan as Marshon Brooks, and Marshon is 5 inches shorter than him.

    In that clip, he wasn't even asked about a specific team, he took it upon himself to throw that part in there.

    So you'd rather go on second hand opinion and unsubstantiated rumour? Is that a better source?

    No, what's messed up is that Brooks has the same wingspan as Joakim Noah, who also has the same wingspan as Kanter. Brooks has a freakish wingspan for his size. Kanter has a decent wingspan for his. And it's more than adequate for the center position.

    LOL. You have it backwards. He played those games with the Turkish team BEFORE joining Kentucky and getting ruled ineligible. But nice try creating a story that supports your silly argument.

    Except the early report also said Kanter rejected Utah, which we are now finding out is not true. Perhaps it'd be wiser to see if Kanter really does refuse Toronto an interview, rather than jumping to conclusions on Day 2/3. For all we know, he had the runs or unusually bad breath, and we're getting in a hissy fit over it.

    So? All that means is Brooks has a beast of a wingspan. Kanter's wingspan is about average for a center.

    One of the biggest enigmas in the 2011 draft class due to the ruling levied against his eligibility at Kentucky by the NCAA, Enes Kanter was measured at the 2010 Nike Hoop Summit and again in Chicago. Jeremy Tyler bypassed college basketball altogether and was measured at least year's adidas EuroCamp before the 2011 combine. Though neither player's height and weight have changed radically, both players have seemingly grown and now stand well above the average height and wingspan for NBA centers.

    But either way, Yes, you are making stuff up. Or you, like I said, are completely ignorant to actual situation. Which is fine. But maybe find out why he didn't play for Kentucky, but was instead a Student-Coach for the Wildcats all year. Do some reasearch. More than Wikipedia.
    well these boards are full of spinsters who have vested interest in a given players.
    You seems to be in denial of facts back by my links and a google search more.

    unlike other lottery pics he has not proven himself at a high level of plays since NIKE SUMMIT - dude is hiding until he is of age. No one can find Youtube of him since -
    - pro stats NADA
    - college stats -
    - virtually nothing ....hiding

    .... DUDE will be one of this lotteries busts bank on it
