Kanter also said he saw one of the Hawks' assistant coaches first-bumping with players after the sequence, which could have resulted in an injury for Kanter. Not only that, Kanter himself had a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

"I understand it's a war, but come on man, in the end we're all human out there". He added that the Hawks' behavior weirded him out because they lost the game 112-107. "I have no idea", Kanter said. "So you shouldn't be doing that".

The Atlanta Hawks social media team learned that this week when they commented on a scary play involving New York Knicks big man Enes Kanter. "So I think they took it a little bit too far".

The fact that somebody pitched this video to the social media team and nobody thought, "hey maybe let's not make fun of someone who was nearly seriously injured", blows my mind.

The 26-year-old center talked to ESPN's Ian Bagley about the tweet: "I know they've been tweeting some insane stuff".

"So it's a little weird to tweet something about him after a bad home loss".

Kanter didn't take the demotion well initially, but extended playing time, a victory and double-doubles have a way of changing hearts.

"The second unit, trying to lead, it actually is easier". The feeling when you see an opportunity just before the internet masses find it and think of the flawless joke is a feeling second only to that of watching the retweets and likes pile up. "So it's way easier", he said. If you're winning or not winning.
