Boston Celtics’ Enes Kanter is certainly someone who is opinionated and is never afraid to speak his mind. This includes the time he blasted NBA players who refused to get vaccinated.
As reported earlier, Boston Celtics games are no longer being streamed on the Chinese internet after comments made by Enes Kanter, where he made pro-Tibet comments. Enes Kanter also recently blasted LeBron James recently over Nike’s use of “slave labor” in China.
Enes Kanter even stated that LeBron James’ teammates believe he takes political stands just for PR. Enes Kanter also recently legally changed his name to Enes Kanter Freedom. Apart from that Enes Kanter also previously criticized NBA legend Michael Jordan.
While speaking on The Big Podcast, Shaquille O’Neal was asked what he felt about Kanter’s name change. Shaquille O’Neal refused to acknowledge Kanter’s name change due to what Kanter said about Michael Jordan.
”I don’t know his name, I’m not memorizing his name and I don’t give a sh*t what he changed his name to.”
James recently made it clear that Kanter isn’t someone that he deems worthy of giving his energy. In the end, LeBron James has better things to focus on than what Enes Kanter said and that is the end of it, even if it is likely that Kanter won’t stop ranting about James for some reason.
