The impact of the NBA Draft in Kentucky? Mixed and fun.
Top end, the Free Enes T-shirt frenzy got a bounce and may have a new market when Kentucky’s big man, who never played a minute, was chosen third by Utah.
Enes Kanter gushed gratitude. Not to God and country, family and friends, or his old team in Turkey, not even John Calipari.
Instead, the man thanked “fantastic Kentucky fans” for their devotion and loyalty despite his 0.0 points-rebounds stat line. In a classy gesture, Kanter dedicated his rookie season to them.
