Enes Kanter reacts to rumored Celtics locker room turmoil
Boston Celtics reserve center Enes Kanter just squashed all the post-game rumors about his team falling apart after being dealt another loss by the Miami Heat to go down 2-0 in their best-of-seven-series. It was earlier reported that Celtics fiery guard Marcus Smart was screaming out expletives in the locker room after their frustrating Game 2 on Thursday. Smart apparently also walked out of the locker room and items were also allegedly heard being thrown.
Kanter immediately took to Twitter to clear the air to on all the nonsensical gossip blowing up on social media right now.
Too many Bullsh.t rumors out there, this group of guys is one of the best I’ve been around.
No one can split our family up.
Keep fighting & grinding.

Based on Enes Kanter’s comments, it’s probably safe to assume that only rumors were thrown rather than actual objects in the Celtics locker room after that crushing Game 2 defeat.
Fellow Celtics Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker and even head coach Brad Stevens were all quick to downplay all the post-game drama in their respective interviews which just shows that the C’s are indeed all on the same page.
“We embrace each other for who we are. Who Marcus is, I love him for it.” Brown said post-game.
It’s no news that Smart is one of the feistiest players not just in Boston but in the entire league so tirades like this shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s no question that the Texas-native has been huge for the Celtics’ and his contributions for his team both on and off the court is something the Boston is all-in on. The two-time All-Defensive First-Team member would have to bring that fire and energy on the court as they try to get one back against the Heat on Game 3 come Saturday.
