Knicks center and potentially aspiring WWE star Enes Kanter knows a thing or two about pro wrestling, but the big man is no fan of one Hawks social media staffer delivering a WWE-themed joke at his expense.
Kanter on Thursday called out the unnamed staffer who highlighted a dangerous tumble Kanter took over Atlanta's Miles Plumlee while battling for the ball Wednesday night. The tweet -- captioned with Jim Ross' famous WWE call "As God as my witness, he is broken in half!" -- dramatized Kanter's fall in a video, and he was having none of it.

"I don't know who's running their social media - a high schooler?'' Kanter said, per the New York Post. "I know they've been tweeting some crazy stuff. Probably a high schooler. Whoever it is, they should consider anyone [else] for sure because it is terrible."
"They should consider a new one definitely, a more mature one," he added in reference to the Twitter poster, per ESPN.com. "Because I've been seeing what the Hawks account's tweeting, terrible. Very childish."
What struck Kanter as particularly strange was what actually happened during the course of the night: Plumlee struggled with just eight points and the Knicks won, 112-107.
"It's kind of weird because they just lost the game last night and the guy they were tweeting about, I got a double-double on him," said Kanter, who tallied 17 points and 11 rebounds in Atlanta. "So it's a little weird to tweet something about him after a bad loss, a home loss."
Kanter made that message crystal clear on his own heavily-used Twitter account.
Kanter added that he felt "fine," even crediting his WWE knowledge, which he detailed to SNY last month, for what prepared him for the impact.
"I'm lucky I watch a lot of wrestling," Kanter said. "Luckily I ducked in. If I didn't duck in, it would be very ugly."
