I’ll have to admit I am not familiar as perhaps I should be with Enes Kanter, the second-year center for the Utah Jazz. But from what I am learning now, the young man clearly is a bit of an eccentric fellow. Kanter, who hails from Turkey, not only is he a player with some potential, he is also a person who realizes that there is no reason not to have fun a little fun while savoring the wonderful opportunity of playing professional basketball in the NBA. When it was team photo day before the start of the 2012-13 NBA season, Kanter tweeted photos of himself posing with a crew of Jazz cheerleaders (above). Something tells me this Enes Kanter fellow fancies himself something of a ladies man. And that suspicion has been effectively confirmed with a tweet Kanter offered up in celebration of Valentine’s Day on Thursday. Referring to himself as “Pimp Daddy,” Kanter dressed the part for a photo wishing all his “sweeties” a happy V-Day. Pimp Daddy wants to say Happy Valentine’s day to all my sweeties. I just LOVE you all twitter.com/Enes_Kanter/st… — Enes Kanter (@Enes_Kanter) February 14, 2013 And the photo, a bit bigger in order to truly admire it in all its glory: Fantastic. Man, there is no shame in his game. You have no choice but to respect Enes Kanter’s pimp hand, for it is strong.
