SpongeBob Reacts To Enes Kanter Learning English By Watching The Show

 

Enes Kanter has had a pretty good season for the New York Knicks, becoming a key part of their rotation. This led to Kanter opting into his contract for next season, rather than becoming a free agent. He has found a new home in the NBA, after being traded from his beloved Oklahoma City, to whom he was traded from Utah. The Jazz drafted him third overall in the 2011 NBA draft. The other day, Kanter told the story of his first few days in the U.S., with a language he wasn’t able to speak properly.  To learn English eventually, he watched SpongeBob Squarepants.

 

“That cartoon is where I got my English from. In college, I couldn’t play and I sat down and watched two shows: SpongeBob and Jersey Shore. I wanted to learn the street language and not the normal language. It helped my English a lot.”

 

The show’s official Twitter account reacted to Kanter’s statement, and he LOVED it!
