Nuggets’ Isaiah Thomas, Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma react to Knicks’ Enes Kanter kissing MSG floor
After having not played in six of the Knicks’ last seven games, Kanter finally saw the floor on Wednesday evening, and upon entering the contest, Kanter kissed the Madison Square Garden court.
He then proceeded to airball his first shot in hilarious fashion.
First, here is Thomas saying Kanter should be in Hollywood:
Haha this dude has to get into acting. He’s hilarious https://t.co/bew3ncDqzB

Kanter has seen his playing time dwindling since the end of December, when Knicks head coach David Fizdale began to opt for the floor-spacing ability of Luke Kornet.
Since then, we haven’t seen much of Kanter, and the 26-year-old has expressed his displeasure both through the media and on the court, including an instance where he sat out on the outside of a huddle during a timeout.
Kanter’s contract is up at the end of this season, so he will surely be playing somewhere else at the beginning of the 2019-20 campaign, if not sooner than that if New York trades him before the Feb. 7 deadline or buys him out.
Of course, trading Kanter will be tough, as his $18 million salary this season is very difficult to match.
Kanter originally arrived in New York shortly before the 2017-18 campaign when he came over in a deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
