Trevor Booker on Enes Kanter: 'He got his stats, but as always he took the L'

NBA Basketball

The Jazz spoiled Enes Kanter's return to Utah as they defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 94-89 Saturday night.

Kanter made headlines when he made comments prior to tip off criticizing the Jazz and saying that he is enjoying basketball for the first time with Oklahoma City. Those comments didn't sit well with current members of the Jazz, and Trevor Booker made himself clear after t

he game.

“Hey, he can say what he want to," Booker said on Jazz radio when asked about Kanter's comments. "We know what we got here, it’s a great organization, great team, we know what we have. Forget what he says, he got his stats, but, as always he took the L.”

Ouch. Kanter indeed got his stats, as he finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds, but it wasn't enough to get by his former team. Kanter's return story didn't stop there, however.

The crowd booed the Thunder center during pregame introductions, and Kanter embraced it.

Thunder coach Scott Brooks took issue with how Kanter handled himself.

Kanter came to Oklahoma City as part of a three-team trade earlier this year. He had asked the Jazz to trade him, which led to some hard feelings from his former teammates.
