Enes Kanter Trolls Kevin Durant, Lakers Fans Over Russell Westbrook Contract Extension

Superstar point guard Russell Westbrook reportedly plans to renegotiate his contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, thus extending it through 2017-18 with a player option for the season after that.

His Thunder teammate, Enes Kanter, understandably is thrilled with the decision. Kanter took to Twitter on Thursday to voice his excitement and do a bit of trolling, too.

First, he trolled Los Angeles Lakers fans, many of whom believed Westbrook would return home as a free agent next summer after playing for UCLA in college.

Then, he took a jab at former teammate Kevin Durant, who left the Thunder as a free agent to join the Golden State Warriors last month.

Kanter seems pretty happy, but the Thunder still are a long way from being a real contender for an NBA championship.
