    I Love Twitter Feuds

    This one is Enes Kanter vs. Jared Dudley.

    The exchange led to matching technicals, and second in the game for Booker. Booker's first technical came when he slammed the ball against the stanchion after a foul call against teammate Troy Daniels in the first half.
    Booker's teammate, Jared Dudley, responded to Kanter's tweet of Booker, calling him a "fake tough guy" which kicked off an exchange between the two.

    Enes Kanter is the biggest faux tough guy in the NBA. And that is saying A LOT.

    That's cause Cal wasn't allowed to toughen him up.

    I'd say he's a heck of a lot tougher than 90% of the guys in the league, especially mentally.

    Yeah, I’ve never thought of Kanter as being a faux tough guy. He’s generally a handful because of his inside physicality. He is a bit full of himself, sure. Plus he called the “King” of faux tough guys, LeBron, a Princess and got up in his face for trying to pick on a rookie half his size (LeBron’s speciality).

    He’s a fake tough guy. He got punked by the king of all fake tough guys...Kevin Durant.

    Probably different definitions of toughness, but not sure how you can call him "fake tough" with everything that's he's had to deal with over the past year or so...

    His family being imprisoned in Turkey because he's spoken out against the dictator there.

    His father having to disown him in order to keep his family back home safe.

    Turkey's attempt to detain him in Europe by cancelling his passport.

    If he ever returns to his home, he's pretty much a dead man at this point.

    None of that has anything to do with what I'm talking about.

    He's always in somebody's face, pretending he wants to fight. Calling someone out on Twitter, etc. He's not really about that life. He ain't fighting anybody.

    It sounds like all the issues you pointed out were created by him.

    That's why I said "different definitions of tough".

    I mean him speaking up created the issues no doubt, but, he's speaking up for basic human rights.
