Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz introduced Enes Kanter to the Assembly Chamber during the Assembly's legislative proceedings.  "We're honoring a Turkish-American individual whose achievements in the sports world are rivaled only by the good work he does in the community and throughout the entire world. Enes Kanter joined the New York Knicks last September as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade…I met Enes Kanter in February when he led a basketball clinic for kids at the Kings Bay YMCA in Brooklyn. I was impressed by his patience and warmth and the time he took talking to the young kids about what it was like growing up as a Turkish immigrant in the United States," said Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz.
