Enes Kanter has the biggest orbs in the NBA.
He’s played just five minutes this season, but the Boston Celtics backup center has left a crater-sized impact on the Association. He’s done it without fear, scoring just two points on the court, while angering billions off it.
Kanter took to social media last week and posted a series of videos dunking on the Communist Chinese Party and Xi Jinping. Kanter called for the people of Tibet to be freed from China’s yoke and showcased a pair of “Free Tibet” shoes. Two days later, using the #FreeUyghurs hashtag, Kanter demanded the Muslim minority group in China be freed from internment camps.
Sunday, Kanter posted images of “FreedomShoes” mocking #XinnieThePooh, while exhorting the Chinese Communist Party to “bring it on.”
Monday, he excoriated shoe-maker Nike via video with the #HypocriteNike hashtag, blasting the company for not “saying a word about the oppression of minorities in China.” Kanter wore shoes emblazoned with the words “Modern Day Slavery” and “No More Excuses” while he watched the Celtics posterize Charlotte from the bench Monday night.
Kanter called out Nike boss Phil Knight, LeBron James and Michael Jordan again by name on Tuesday.
