More Kanter Banter: Knicks big man throws shade at Suns

Enes Kanter of the Knicks had some fun when asked if he was to be chosen as Kevin Love's replacement on Team LeBron for the All-Star Game.

Enes Kanter is developing a much-deserved reputation for being a trash talker.

After a couple of dustups with LeBon James of the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this season, the New York Knicks big man threw some shade at Devin Booker and Jared Dudley of the Phoenix Suns on Friday night.

After the Knicks recorded a road win against the Suns, 107-85, Kanter tweeted a Photoshopped image of Booker, whom he had argued with during the game.

Dudley responded to Kanter’s tweet, calling him a “fake tough guy,” and referencing James’s response to Kanter’s antics earlier this season.

That didn’t sit well with Kanter, who took it to a personal level, citing Dudley’s physique. The 32-year-old Dudley, now in his 11th NBA season, is listed at 6-fooot-7, 225 pounds.

Booker played with an edge Friday night… while he was on the floor.

He was tagged with a Flagrant 1 foul for putting the Knicks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. to the floor on a breakaway layup.

Later, after Kanter blocked one of his shots then taunted him, Booker pushed Kanter in the back, earning a second technical foul and being ejected.

Booker played only 25 minutes, posting 12 points, four rebounds, three assists and three turnovers.

Dudley had seven points, one rebound, four assists and a pair of steals in 22 minutes.

Kanter had 20 points, on 8-of-10 shooting, and 10 boards in 29 minutes.
