Utah Jazz season ticket holders are sure to get a chuckle today when they grab their stubs for tonight’s game against the Nuggets.
That’s because bumping and backing on the April Fools’ Day ticket is that former Jazz player, Enes Kanter.
This is the best, unintentional April Fools joke you will see today. pic.twitter.com/Cb5PT15lNr— Brandon Garside (@BGarsideSE) April 1, 2015
In light of the drama that unfolded over the weekend in Salt Lake when Kanter made his return in an OKC uniform, the unintentional appointment of “Big Turk” to today’s ticket is full of irony and perfect timing.
His comments before last Saturday night’s game fired up the Jazz, and likely cost his team the contest, which may prove to be crucial as the season winds down. The Thunder are just 2.5 games ahead of New Orleans for the last spot in the playoffs.
And since he’s been traded, Jazz fans have been treated to the incredible emergence of Rudy Gobert, and a Jazz team that has made its future look even brighter, as Kanter made himself look...foolish.
