Knicks’ Enes Kanter gets blocked by rim at his own camp
Enes Kanter has not been having a good summer. After recently getting schooled and being the recipient of some spiteful trash talking from a bunch of kids, the 26-year-old New York Knicks big man has had another Shaqtin’ a Fool moment.
This time around, Kanter was taking part in another basketball youth camp when his attempt at a dunk embarrassingly got blocked by the rim.
Another Camp Same Result 🙈

Being the ultimate trash talker that he is, Kanter also knows how to poke fun at himself. Kanter shared the clip on his personal Twitter account, accompanying it with an amusing caption for good measure.
Kanter knows that he will need to be much better than this come opening night. He is on the final year of his five-year contract with the New York Knicks, which means that he will become an unrestricted free agent next summer. He will need to do everything he can to up his stock in the hopes of securing a sizable payday once he hits the open market. Next summer’s free agent class will be absolutely packed, so Kanter will not have a shortage of competition.
After being traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Knicks last year in the deal that brought Carmelo Anthony to OKC, Kanter had an impressive debut season in New York. He averaged 14.1 points on 59.2% shooting, 11.0 rebounds, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks as the team’s starting center.
The Knicks finished 11th in the Eastern Conference last season with a 29-53 record. Kanter and the rest of the squad will need to be at their best if they hope to improve on last season’s performance.
