Utah Jazz: What’s wrong with Enes Kanter?

Enes Kanter has been removed from the starting lineup, and rather than use that demotion as motivation to prove he belongs back in the starting lineup, he appears to have lost all confidence. What is going on with his game? When it comes to offensive possessions, Kanter was seen as the stronger player to Favors, but Favors has actually demonstrated he’s the better option in many...
