There is nothing I love more than a good villain, because without them, the world would be pretty boring. With that said, when Enes Kanter kinda-sorta forced his way out of Utah at the NBA trade deadline this year, one might not expect the Salt Lake City faithful to welcome back the former Kentucky Wildcat with open arms.

The “Let Me Hear It” gesture by Kanter makes this whole situation that much more entertaining. It’s almost like Kanter watched Hulk Hogan turn heel in WCW at Bash at the Beach in the '90s before the Oklahoma City Thunder’s game against the Jazz Saturday night.

Well done by both sides.
