NBA Draft Media Day 2011 took place yesterday, and Bleacher Report was there reporting on a frenetic event where journalists from across the world scratch and claw for any quotes, soundbites and video clips from future NBA draft picks.
Twelve players appeared at the Westin Times Square, spilt into two groups of six, for 30-minute shifts early Wednesday afternoon. Here is the Enes Kanter recap.

"I have no fear."
Enes Kanter skipped the cliches when answering a reporter's question about any possible reservations he may have about entering the NBA. Those four words represent the draft's ultimate wild card: Watching him for 10 minutes, he seemed like he was on a beach talking with family rather than being pounded with questions in two different languages.
Whether teams at the top of the draft believe in his abilities or not seem to be of no concern to Kanter, though he offered this honest soundbite and many more during his media day session.
