Kanter: I thought I was Kobe

46

New York Knicks center Enes Kanter joked he is Kobe Bryant, after Rudy Gobert asked him to ‘pass the ball.’

After posting his picture with five defenders against 76ers on Monday, Jazz star Gobert quote retweeted his post, saying that he should pass the ball.

Kanter responded, thinking himself as Kobe Bryant, not for the Black Mamba’s scoring prowess, but for his negative attributes.

Kanter is averaging 14.2 points and 10.6 rebounds in his rookie season in New York.
