The Nobel Peace Prize has been nominated for Enes Kanter Freedom.
People are taking notice of the NBA free agent, who routinely speaks out against China’s injustices and is a strong supporter for human rights.
He was nominated for the prestigious prize by a member of the Norwegian Parliament, and 30 former recipients urged the Celtics to make history by not trading and cutting him before he was traded and cut.
While Freedom, who was dismissed by the Rockets after being traded, is currently without an NBA team, he is still making an impact.
He constantly criticizes the Chinese regime in particular. There is no one else in the NBA who goes after the CCP on a regular basis.
In reality, most NBA players adore the CCP and would never dare to criticize it. When talking about Daryl Morey’s support for people in Hong Kong, LeBron James appeared to choose the CCP over free expression.
