The Thunder forward hasn’t spent much time on the court this preseason with his friend and frontcourt mate Steven Adams, so the three-plus minutes they logged together in the second quarter of Tuesday’s 97-87 win against the Denver Nuggets was a welcome, if brief, stretch. “It feels so good, man,” Kanter said after the game at Chesapeake Energy Arena. “I remember last year in the San Antonio series we played and we crushed them. I think it’s gonna be one of our weapons. Just go out there, me and him, bring a lot of physicality. And I feel so much more confident and comfortable when I play out there with Steven. It feels really good.”
Did you expect Oklahoma City to be such a welcoming place for you? Enes Kanter: I didn’t know how well the organization was going to be for me, but from the start they respected everything – my religion, my beliefs and everything. It was amazing how the organization was for me. It’s like everybody is welcoming you. When you learned you were going to have your own place to pray, what did it mean for you? Enes Kanter: It meant a lot to me because I’m in America and obviously it’s not a Muslim country, but the one thing I loved about Americans and Oklahoma City is that they are really respectful. Everything I do, whether it’s the food or the praying… they are really respectful. I just love it.
