NBA: Enes Kanter misses Knicks training due to massive cheat day

New York Knicks centre Enes Kanter missed his team's training because it was his cheat day.

In a video posted on Twitter the big man was seen with a meal consisting of seven burgers - three of them were topped with an egg - and fries.

"After a long trip, I'm having my cheat day," he said. "Three triple patties with eggs and sauces. I've got my french fries. I've got … four burgers here; I’m very excited about it. Let's do it, Bon Appetit."

It resulted in Kanter missing training and has been ruled out with an illness for the Knicks' game against the Indiana Pacers.

The Knicks responded by putting fake burgers in his locker.

It isn't the first time Kanter has been seen to eat extreme amounts of food in one sitting, his cheat day in November consisted of sweets and chocolate. 

Kanter is averaging 14 points, 11 rebounds and two assists this year.
