Utah Jazz fan favorite Enes Kanter gave an entertaining interview to Kyle Gunther of 1320 KFAN in Salt Lake City on Wednesday. Kanter touched on many funny topics such as his absurd diet, his bucket list, and his rookie hazing experience. The 2011 No. 3 overall draft pick also told Gunther that his home in Utah is haunted.

Kanter says he rented a big house in Salt Lake City and that he’s experienced many strange incidents there recently.

Kanter says that two weeks ago he was sleeping in his home when he woke up and heard someone say, “Hey Enes.” The strange part is he says he was alone. He says he then heard a car start.

Five days ago, Kanter says he was sleeping and his lights went on in his room. He says he had a friend sleeping downstairs in the house, so he figured it was his buddy messing with him. When he went downstairs to check on his buddy, he found his friend asleep. Kanter says the lights upstairs were also turning on and off even though nobody was up there. Kanter says he then went back upstairs and found his closet light on. Worried about what was going on, Kanter later had his buddy check the lights in the house who said they were fine.

Then last night, Kanter says he woke up around 4:30 in the morning after hearing creaking noises in the house and lights going off. He heard a door shut and texted his friend to ask if he was doing it. The friend said no.

The belief that the house is haunted has left Kanter perplexed. Gunther suggested that he call the Ghostbusters to come fix the issue.

Those weren’t the only funny stories Kanter told.

The Jazz big man says that ever since he did “The Worm” in October, women have been approaching him everywhere to show him how to do it better.

Kanter also talked about some of the rookie hazing he experienced last season. He said the hazing was “so childish” like guys putting whipped cream on his face while he was sleeping, and hiding his phone. He left out a story we covered in March about being blocked from eating fried chicken.

As you could imagine, Kanter’s bucket list is pretty awesome. He says he’d like to be a pro wrestler after basketball. He also listed going to the moon, bungee jumping, parachuting, and bull riding as activities on his bucket list.

You can call Kanter crazy for thinking his house is haunted, but he’s not the first athlete to make such a claim.
