As the long NBA season approaches the final few games of the season Enes Kanter has stood out for various reasons. From putting up the most double doubles off the bench, to finishing games without missing a shot, and now to being considered the front runner for the sixth man of the year award. In the past few weeks NBA analysts have weighed in on why Enes should win this prestige award but it was his teammates who spoke highly of him. Enes has received praise from Russell Westbrook & Kevin Durant on his rebounding, scoring and overall efficiency!
At this pace Enes is only playing 20 minutes a game but producing at a high rate, which will continue to raise eyebrows across the NBA.
*Note: Enes Kanter scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in just 21 minutes against the San Antonio Spurs on March 26, 2016.
