How has Enes Kanter not spoken up about China?
I get that the NBA probably sent a private memo to all players not to address it but if one player would speak out, you’d think it’d be him.

Yet you bitch when players talk about their beliefs instead of shutting up and playing ball.

No people bitch when players complain about stupid shite and stir up controversy over fake victimhood. And then we cringe when we see those same people towing the corporate line when in the face of actual injustice. Enes is the one political athlete who has faced down true injustice and is the one player you would expect to not bitch out.

I think you’re missing the point. And that is players love to tell their beliefs and how they care for social issues. But when the time for them to show their convictions, they got nothing to say.

They wanted the public to give attention to their messages and take them seriously. They wanted to play the political game(no one forced them). Now, they’re in the game and they don’t like it.

This isn’t his issue. He’s busy getting harassed in public by Turks loyal to Erdogan

That is the big issue here.

They claimed to be the “most progressive sports league”, but when push comes to shove, they fold like a cheap Chinese umbrella.

Because Enes has his own legit political shite to worry about.

Yeah, I think the whole "I don't know when a Turk may come take me out" problem he has gives him a pass

Especially with the most recent Turk invasion of Syria
His Twitter is literally all anti Erdogan
I really doubt HK is on his mind right now

Especially with his parents still over in Turkey

When a country cancels your passport in an attempt to illegally extradite you and your parents publicly disown you to save themselves, you tend to get a pass on calling or different dictators.

Yup. Came here to say I would probably try to keep being wanted dead filed down to just one country.
