Who will be a better pro Enes Kanter or Demarcus Cousins??????

Im watchin a replay of the Nike under 19 game where Kanter had 34 and 13. And I thought to myself who will be a better pro he or Cousins. Cousins is a hands down better athlete but its something about his attitude that turns me off. He reminds me of a young Zach Randolph (not in a good way). He will go to a bad team likely with a bad coaching staff and no strong vets in the locker room to check him when he gets out of line. He strikes me as the type that needs CONSTANT structure. Coach Cal was always on him and hes a players coach. On the other hand, Kanter seems to have that rough,tenacious, self motivated type of game. Im a big fan of that blue collar style. Remembers me of a bigger, younger Luis Scola. Plus he probably be drafted much lower to a better team, better coaching staff and so on. Possibly a couple years in Europe till his game ripens it will be interesting. So what do yall think of the battle of wildcat big men past and furture????

I think Kanter is a lottery

I think Kanter is a lottery pick but he hasn't play college ball yet so I can't say much. Cousins has shown why he's a top 5 pick in college so we have to wait and see.

kanter is a freaking

kanter is a freaking beast...demarcus is the more natural athlete/better player but kanters intangibles are awfully impressive

being from seattle, i want to kill romar for not sticking to kanter like white on rice

on another note, john calipari has no morals and is a garbage individual

Kanter mau be a bit limited

Kanter mau be a bit limited ateltically but he displays a very high basketball IQ to go with a very powerful body, and also very good technic with both hands and a jump shot. Cousins is more athletic without being the freak Favors is fo example, but he dominates in college only due to his body and must work on everything from his low post moves, to his sooting via his concentration .

Kanter reminds me of Loves

Kanter reminds me of Loves game when in high school minus the great passing and consistent 3 to mid-range jumper

Cousins

But Kanter hasn't even played college, so it's easy to give the nod to Cousins, who absolutely dominated the NCAA this year.

if we are talking about

if we are talking about potential what they COULD be it's not even close i think..
but even with out it, just comparing them as a players i still would take DeMarcus Cousins..man he looks like Kanter+Sullinger+bigger/longer LOL

Kanter isn't going to Europe

Kanter isn't going to Europe for a couple years and you said he'll get drafted lower. First off he'll be playing on national TV every week at Kentucky and will probably be a lottery pick.

Kanter will be better. The structure around Cousins will be bad cause he'll be going to a bad team and he needs people to keep him in check. Cousins is easily the more skilled player, but I'm not sure he can handle the NBA.

the answer

cousins has more potential for sure. his body size can't be teached. he could be one of the best nba centers in the game. but his attitude is def a turn off. i have big doubts that he will tap into that talent. he obviously likes money a lot thats why he went to kentucky. i havent seen this kanter yet but from what i heard he will be a more productive pro just cuz of character and work ethic.
