Enes Kanter so far...
Almost a month now into the season, what do you guys think of Kanter?

I like his aggressiveness against the boards as well his post moves. However, he seems to not be able to finish plays. He'll post a player up then gets strip of the ball or fumbles the ball or gets rejected. He has awfully poor handles. He's not missing 7 or 8 footer's, he's missing lay-ups and gimme baskets.

Reminds me of how Jefferson was the first month or two in a Jazz uniform. Hopefully, he'll learn how to score soon. But right now it doesn't look like he knows how.

Re: Enes Kanter so far...
I think he'll be fine. Coming into the season it sounded like he was a major project not someone that was going to be counted on to contribute to what's been a winning team. He shows all the signs of being a dominant rebounder which alone makes him very special. You can see that he's coordinated unlike someone like Fessenko. Think his offensive game was more perimeter oriented like most Euros and they want him down low. He just needs time. The most encouraging thing is that him and Favors look to work together well which bodes well for the future.

Burks looks like the best prospect of all of them from the little we've seen. Other than Karl and A.D. I can't think of anyone that got to the line like he does. Don't think they've had anyone that gets to the rim like him ever. He's fearless, aggressive, energetic and athletic. His shot looks good. Can handle the ball and pass. Gets after people on D. He could be their go to guy superstar running the pick and roll with Millsap/Favors. He just needs minutes.

I pretty much completely agree with Xiao, which is rare lol. Burks looks like he's going to be an all star level scorer, and Kanter looks like a good rebounder, though doing it against the backups isn't quite as impressive. I just wish we got Burks a couple years earlier because that would've put them over the top with the Okur/Boozer/DWill teams.
Kanter just is really raw though. He'll improve, how much just depends on how much work he puts in.
