Current Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter is a big fan of pro wrestling. He was the third overall pick of the 2011 NBA draft by the Utah Jazz. He has also played for the Oklahoma City Thunder (2015–2017), New York Knicks (2017–2019), and Portland Trail Blazers (2019).
He has said he would like to get into professional wrestling once he retires from the NBA.

It looks like AEW star MJF (Maxwell Jacob Friedman) took exception to the player and his city of Boston.
Cool let’s go to the most overhyped city in the world.— Maxwell Jacob Friedman™️ (@The_MJF) August 6, 2019
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.

It looks like Cody Rhodes had to step in for his pal MJF.
You’ll have to forgive young Max. He’s “passionate”— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) August 7, 2019
