Summary: Despite being ruled ineligible at Kentucky this past season, Enes Kanter remains the best big man prospect in the 2011 NBA Draft class. He possesses the size and post game of someone well beyond his years and should be a top-five pick come June.
Player Comparison: Tim Duncan. Before I get lit up for this comparison, I am in no way implying that Kanter is going to be the next Tim Duncan, but rather the two have fairly similar games. Like the Big Fundamental, Kanter shows great maturity at a young age, ability to rebound, mid-range game and intelligence.
Duncan has never been by any stretch of the imagination one of the most athletic big men around, and neither will Kanter, but still maximizes the abilities that have made him one of the top post players in the league for more than a decade. Kanter will likely never be in that category, but should be a quality big man for years to come.
@kklunert I agree Wentz is better than Kessler at this point ( not by alot to be honest ) Once teams got tape on him he regressed ALOT ... His arm and game savvy is good but he looked average at best... I watched D. Prescott all thru his sr year in college and thought he was a better QB but he made a bad choice getting a DUI... You are 110% right on them having to hit on their draft picks... Titans hit with J. Conklin when many said they reached big time for him...sometimes you get lucky but I thought he was just as good as Tunsil & Stanley ...
