It's hardly a secret that Enes Kanter wants to be a professional wrestler. The new Boston Celtics center is a huge fan and has often talked up the discipline as he harbors intentions of following his dream once he's done with basketball.
This year has been quite the whirlwind for Kanter. Having started the 2018/19 NBA season with the New York Knicks, he ended it with the Portland Trail Blazers and is now in Boston after signing a two-year, $10 million deal with the team.
Kanter joined the Celtics as a replacement for departed Al Horford and will hope to bring a trophy to Boston after teaming up with the likes of Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown.
In the meantime, though, he's honing his skills in the ring and was recently seen administering a Diamond cutter to an unfortunate opponent while pacing about as "The Turkish Delight."
All Elite Wrestling's MJF, who's still Twitter uncertified, came across Kanter's video too and decided to take a shot at the NBA star, asking him to stick to playing with his "little balls."

Speaking of overhyped, @EnesKanter I saw you playing wrestler on my feed.
How about you stick to playing with your little balls and leave the wrestling to the pros.

Kanter responded to the tweet, urging MJF to at least get Twitter verified before running off at the fingers.

Cody Rhodes had to step in to apologize on his colleague's behalf, also taking the opportunity to extend an invitation to the center.
"You’ll have to forgive young Max," Rhodes wrote. "He’s “passionate”. We’d love to see you in Boston for @AEWrestling. Our mutual friend says you’ve got a helluva Diamond cutter."
