Enes Freedom has made it his life's mission to campaign for human rights worldwide.
Despite living in Boston, Freedom has focused much of his energy towards China in an effort to draw awareness to the communist regime that has taken hold there. Over the past few weeks, Enes has also taken aim at his fellow players, who he feels have chosen money over morals.
“I don’t know if he’s educated enough, but I’m here to educate him and I’m here to help him, because it’s not about money,” Freedom said of James. “It’s about morals, principles and values. It’s about what you stand for. There are way bigger things than money. If LeBron stopped making money now, his grandkids and grandkids and grandkids can have the best life ever. I feel like it’s definitely time for athletes to stand up for the things they believe in — not just in America — but all over the world.”
This week Enes talked about Jeremy Lin, calling him out for not supporting 'his' people.
Shame on you @JLin7. Haven’t you had enough of that Dirty Chinese Communist Party money feeding you to stay silent? How disgusting of you to turn your back against your country & your people. Stand with Taiwan! Stop bowing to money & the Dictatorship. Morals over Money brother.
Lin, who does have Taiwanese heritage, was actually born in Southern California, and that fact is not lost on the fans.
To be fair, Lin is currently playing in the CBA (Chinese Basketball Association) as a member of the Beijing Ducks, so he definitely has significant ties to the area.
Lin has yet to respond to the shoutout.
Kanter, meanwhile, continues to get louder in his ongoing crusade against social injustice. Over the past few weeks alone, he changed his name, made appearances on several major news networks, and has called out both LeBron James and Michael Jordan.
Who knows what comes next?
