It would be great if a guy like him finds a long-term home here.

It would also be great if he can play Embiid in the playoffs and not get totally embarrassed.

He’s just entering his prime, so maybe we will have him for his best years.

Hahaha awesome number choice

At least Kanter’s outspoken on social media and not an enigma in general

After trolling Erdogan, trolling Kyrie is child’s play.

Already in love with Kanter!  ;D

From beefing with Nick Wright to interacting with Celtics fans in a fun way on Twitter to this, he'll be easy to root for.

Kanter has been comedy gold so far. I prefer players who speak their minds, rather than some guys who talk to the media in a monotone/robotic type of way.

I didn't really know Kanter at all until now, but I have to admit I have already grown very fond of him from the couple of smarty pants comments he has made so far.  He seems like he will be the type of fun, friendly guy that will make the locker room an enjoyable place to be, and after last season I feel that our young guys could really benefit from a more enjoyable locker room.

Kanter is a really cool guy.  He gave a short interview (about 4 minutes) on NPR earlier this year which is a good listen - it's all serious talk with no joking around - but you get the sense that he's intelligent, down to earth, and does not for a second take for granted his ability to play in the NBA and live in America.  Basically the complete opposite of a certain player who left us for Brooklyn not long ago.

The play button is at the top left corner of the page.

He also stepped up big for Portland in the playoffs.  I doubt Portland would have made it to the WCF without him.

Looks like Kanter is a character.  Those guys are great when things are going well but get killed when thing are not.

I love that he is politically engaged, intelligent, anti-fascist.

I just wish his defense was better.

I like this play on Giannis

Nobody from last season team stood up to Giannis in the playoffs

Embarrassing

TP.......Now that warms my heart… Actually it sets it on fire!

And you are right, it was embarrassing!

Kanter will not only not back down from anybody, but he will be very physical And an initiator of contact!
