Steve Luhm

Don't get all the Enes Kanter hate. So he didn't like playing here. Neither did Deron Williams. But having them to trade made Jazz better.

Royce Young

One thing I took away listening to Kanter this morning: No doubt about it, he wants to re-sign with the Thunder this summer.

Aaron Falk

Kanter: "I think the difference is probably I like playing basketball there." tout.com/m/uhtl09

Aside from the "mountains" joke, Enes Kanter was just explaining the entire "light-goes-on" phenomenon, to me.

Andy Larsen

Enes, do you miss anything about Utah? "Mountains. That's it, I guess."

Andy Larsen

Enes: "Like I said, I don't really want to talk about it here. I've got a lot of things to say but just don't want to say it right now."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter on OKC: "Everything there is just professional. Everything they do is for the players. You just only focus on basketball."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "I don't want to make no comments on them, but I think, after I went to OKC, I was like 'Oh man, this is how NBA teams [are].'"

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "I still respect them. I still like my coaches here, I still have friends here, some friends here, not a lot."

Andy Larsen

Enes: "You know how you're like in a dream, that you have a superpower and you don't want to open your eyes? OKC's been like that for me."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "It wasn't just basketball stuff. It was just professionalism. After I see OKC, then I was like, this is how NBA teams are."

Andy Larsen

What was the biggest frustration? Enes: "I will say almost everything. I didn't bring it every night. Almost everything was a frustration."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "It wasn't just a one game, two game frustration, it was a three and a half year frustration. I'm happy for both sides."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "I never liked playing basketball before in my NBA career. It's the first time that I felt like playing basketball."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "I think the difference is I like playing basketball there. I think that's the most important thing."

Andy Larsen

Enes Kanter: "I love it. It's a team that I've never experienced before. I actually like playing basketball there."

Andy Larsen

Tony Jones

Johnson impressed the jazz when he was here. Was let go in part because jazz needed roster spot for enes kanter trade

Royce Young

Hey, good news: Enes Kanter has his 11th double-double with the Thunder (seventh straight). (Also: The Thunder are currently down 30.)

Anthony Slater

And oh, yeah, Thunder down 30. Wouldn't be a terrible idea to rest Westbrook/Kanter and others for the night.

Anthony Slater

Enes Kanter has extended his point-rebound double-double streak to seven games. Longest in Thunder history previously was five.

Polo Bustamante

Shutting Westbrook and Kanter down for the night should give guys like Singler, Morrow, McGary and Agustin more reps to get better.

Royce Young

Spurs lead the Thunder 71-50 at half. Westbrook 16 and 3 assists, Kanter 10 and 5 rebounds. Spurs shooting 62.8 percent.

Royce Young

Spurs lead the Thunder 32-28 after one. Westbrook 14 and two assists, Kanter 8 and 4 rebounds. Spurs shot 63.6 percent.

Jeff McDonald

Overall, Kanter was a nice addition to OKC's frontcourt rotation. He does, however, rank as one of the worst rim defenders in the NBA.

Anthony Slater

Enes Kanter's skill and basketball feel from offense to defense is about as opposite as I've ever seen. Complete 180.

Tom Ziller

Enes Kanter is like a reverse DeAndre Jordan. So good on one end, so limited on the other.

John Rohde

The numbers @Enes Kanter is posting (17.7 ppg; 10.9 rpg) are the numbers I expected @Serge Ibaka to be posting. @FranchiseOK @steelyonsports

John Rohde

#Thunder could have kept @Reggie Jackson for $14M per year, but what will it cost #OKC to keep @Enes Kanter? @FranchiseOK @steelyo

Since pairing Steven Adams and Enes Kanter together in the starting five March 15, OKC's outrebounding opponents 50.2 to 35.3 per game.

Ryen Russillo

Kanter has been incredible for OKC. Loved him out of the draft. Also loved Clarkson, Butler and Mirotic. #sosmart

Michael Lee

Enes (The Menace) Kanter has scored 53 pts & grabbed 28 rebs in his past 2 games. #thunder got him for a first-rd pick & Kendrick Perkins

Mike Trudell

Final score: 127-117 for the Thunder. Westbrook, Kanter and Waiters all scored 20+, while Clarkson led the Lakers with 30.

Royce Young

Thunder beat the Lakers 127-117. Westbrook 27 and 11 assists, Kanter 25-16-4, Waiters 23 (10-16 shooting), Adams 16 and 10, Morrow 12.
