After becoming an American citizen this year, Enes Kanter legally changed his name to Enes Freedom. He is not afraid to speak for what is right and spent much of the past year using his platform to bring awareness of tyranny.
Freedom attacked the mainstream narrative around the vaccine mandates and actively called out LeBron James for his hypocrisy in supporting social justice causes (like BLM and Defund the Police) while also making millions of dollars from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which is responsible for human rights violations, including slavery, murder, rape, and mass sterilization.
Enes Freedom has been open about the “advice” he has received to stop talking about China or lose his sponsorships.
“I have so much things that I want to say, but I cannot because these teams got us,” said Freedom on Fox News Radio. “If you want another contract, if you want more endorsement deals, if you want other companies to work with you, you have to keep your mouth shut.”
Freedom said players “cannot criticize the league, the companies, Nike, or whoever – the players or superstars.” He told Fox News that despite corporate pressure to drop his mission, he stays determined because of interaction with people who encourage him to continue to fight.
Freedom claims that another Laker reached out to him and encouraged him to keep criticizing LeBron James over China. “One of the teammates that LeBron had come up to me and said, ‘Dude, keep doing what you’re doing. What you’re doing is right. Don’t give up.'”
Freedom says he’s the only one standing up for what is right most of the time. “I’m like, Dude come on, man. There is not one player that wants to join me. That made me, like, really sad.”
He said the interaction left him “shocked.”
“I thought he was gonna be like, ‘Dude, stop talking.’ He’s going to try to defend LeBron, right? He’s like, ‘Dude, do not stop.'” said Enes Freedom.
He said he wants to sit down with LeBron James and have an educated conversation about the atrocities happening at the hand of the CCP and hopes that more players will have the courage to speak out.
