LA-Streetball.com - Center Philadelpia 76ers, Joel Embiid, makin dikenal gara-gara personanya di media sosial dan in-game trash talk, tapi ia bukan satu-satunya pemain yang jago di area itu.
Pemain New York Knicks, Enes Kanter, juga jago ngemainin sosial media gara-gara ia jadi hobi ngetrolling LeBron James. Dan menurutnya, ia gak punya rencana buat berenti.
Pas interview dengan ESPN, Kanter ngasih tau resepnya pas "memasak" ledekan buat James. Sampe semua masakannya itu jadi perkelahian di lapangan pas November kemaren. Kanter bilang:
"And then it was the first game I was with the Knicks and then he came and before the game he said we should’ve drafted Dennis Smith Jr. And not just me, but most of our guys felt like it was disrespectful to Frank [Ntilikina] and we actually sat down with Frank and talked to him and said, “Hey you gotta step up for yourself, man.”
Then I was in the game and they were pushing each other and I’m like, “This is a 19-year-old kid against a 260-pound dude. This is not fair.” So I get in there and we were face-to-face and we trash-talked a little bit. After the game I called him “queen” or “princess” or whatever.
But I would do anything to take his focus away, distract him. People ask me, “Does it work?” No it does not work. But I’m trying."
Tapi Kanter harusnya udah ngerti dan tau kalo nge-trolling LeBron James gak akan ada gunanya, selama ia belom bisa overpowering James. Tapi mungkin emang itu udah persona yang Kanter mau bangun di karirnya. Sayang kita gak bakal ngeliat serunya Kanter ngetrolling James di empat games pada season depan.
