Jazz forward Trevor Booker, one of the more vocal critics when Enes Kanter returned to Utah for the first time since he was traded to OKC last month, had a parting shot for his former teammate on the final night of the regular season Wednesday.
Booker called out Kanter and the OKC Thunder for failing to qualify for the Playoffs.
Wouldn't go to war with any other guys! Helluva season Jazz Nation!!! And oh yeah, glad we didn't lose to a non playoff team @Enes_Kanter

The Jazz ended their 2014-15 campaign with a 117-91 road loss to the Houston Rockets.
Per the Salt Lake Tribune:
After spending his homecoming lightly blasting his old team and subsequently reveling in a chorus of boos from the fans that once cheered him, Enes Kanter lobbed one more insult at the Utah Jazz on his way out of Salt Lake City late last month. […] “We have to do a better job,” Kanter said following a 94-89 loss for his Oklahoma City. “We cannot just let a team not even in the playoffs spot beat us like that.”
Thursday night saw the end of the season for Booker and the Jazz. It also saw the New Orleans Pelicans beat the San Antonio Spurs, knocking Kanter and the Thunder out of the postseason.
And Booker, who wasn’t shy about expressing his feelings about Kanter last month, wouldn’t let his old teammate forget that either.
