Enes Kanter had always wanted to play basketball but according to many interviews he was never allowed to by his parents until he was 15 years old. His parents made him concentrate solely on school and even when he did start playing school work was always number one priority. Well once he started playing he was very good and even started playing professionally in Turkey as a teenager but he was getting almost no minutes. Kanter’s dream has always been to play in the NBA and thought that going over to Kentucky and playing college ball would help him get there. But Kanter once again was not allowed to play because of NCAA rules he had already played professionally so college was out of the question. Kanter still was able to fulfill his dream of the NBA because the Utah Jazz selected him #3 overall in the 2011 NBA draft. All Kanter wants to do is play basketball and in his first two years in the league he got to play but mostly bench minutes as he was learning the ropes from big Al. Now Kanter has an opportunity to play big quality minutes and there is no doubt in my mind that this kid will be ready for it.
