Good for Him

I remember “World B. Free” and “Metta World Peace”.

Report: Enes Kanter To Change Last Name To ‘Freedom’ | The Daily Wire

I keep saying that the NBA can deal with one person who isn’t on board with their bow to China policy, but Kanter, err, Kanter Freedom, is starting to get noisy enough that they may need to take steps.

Unfortunately, he’s probably getting popular enough that they can’t take steps. They waited too long, and now it’s going to blow up in their faces.

You can add Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter to the list of NBA players who have officially changed their names during their playing days.

On Sunday, NBA insider Shams Charania reported that Kanter will legally change his name to Enes Kanter Freedom as he prepares to become a U.S. citizen on Monday.

“Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter is legally changing his name to Enes Kanter Freedom, [The Athletic] [Stadium] learned,” Charania posted to Twitter. “Kanter will be his middle name, Freedom is his new last name. He becomes a U.S. citizen on Monday.”

Good on him. I look forward to him taking on this fight. I may even start watching the NBA, or at least the Celtics. Wow, me a Celtics fan. Who would have ever dreamed that.
