Kanter goes #3 to the Jazz
With the 3rd pick of the NBA draft, the Utah jazz took Kentucky's Enes Kanter. When the pick was made, we learned a couple of things. One, ESPN and other talking heads are never going to let the "Enes got paid" go. And two, Enes is one classy guy.
After he was picked, they asked Enes his thoughts of being picked and he had this to say
"First I want to dedicate my first NBA season to the Kentucky fans. They were so supportive of me all year, and they are just great. They'll always have a place in my heart."
Thanks NCAA for not letting the BEST player in the draft play. You not only punished Enes Kanter, but you punished all of college basketball by not letting them see his talents on display.
