With All-Star spots opening up due to injuries, Kanter, who is averaging 14.0 points and 10.1 rebounds per game, was playfully asked how he would respond to being on James’ team:
Enes Kanter was playfully asked about replacing the injured Kevin Love and playing for LeBron James’ All-Star team. “I might ask for a trade,” he said with a laugh. “If it happens, it happens. If not, I’ll go to break. I’m going to cheer for KP.”

After Kanter mocked James’ Cavaliers for surrendering 148 points to his former team, the Thunder, a few weeks ago, the 25-year-old big man was reportedly warned about his relentless trolling.
