New York Knicks center Enes Kanter angrily reacted to him being omitted from an image by NBA Europe that featured Cleveland Cavaliers‘ Cedi Osman, Milwaukee Bucks‘ Ersan Ilyasova and Philadelphia 76ers‘ Furkan Korkmaz, with the caption “Celebrating the best Turkish talent in the NBA.”

While NBA Europe then uploaded another image that included Kanter and the NBA apologized to the Knicks‘ big guy, Kanter says he felt “disrespected” especially since he considers himself as “the best Turkis player to ever play the game.”

Per New York Post:

“They put something out, forgot to put me and changed it later,’’ Kanter said. “They called and gave an apology. I’m going to be a bigger man and accept it. I felt disrespected, definitely.

“It’s Europe, man. Anything can happen,’’ Kanter added when asked if he had his doubts. “I’m the best Turkish player to ever play the game.”
