Enes Freedom explains why it would be his ‘dream’ for Elon Musk to buy the NBA

Free agent center Enes Freedom wants billionaire Elon Musk to buy the NBA.

Musk, who recently made headlines by purchasing the social media platform Twitter, is one of the richest people in the world and has a desire to make Twitter “politically neutral.”

Freedom has been outspoken about human rights issues in China, and he has attacked Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James in the process.

Freedom recently appeared on Fox News to explain why he wants Musk to buy the NBA, as he thinks it will help him get back in the league.

“That would be my dream,” Freedom said. “That would be my dream. I think what he is doing for free speech is amazing. I think he can bring some justice to the NBA and finally maybe I can get to play basketball.”

Freedom spent time with the Boston Celtics during the 2021-22 season, but he was traded to the Houston Rockets at the league’s trade deadline.

The Rockets, who are in the middle of a rebuild, decided to waive the veteran center to allow for more time for their young players.

During the 2021-22 regular season, Freedom averaged 3.7 points and 4.6 rebounds per game while shooting 52.6 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. He appeared in 35 games for the Celtics and made one start.

Freedom may think that Musk purchasing the NBA would allow him to get back in the league, but the veteran center also needs to prove that he can contribute to a winning team to find a spot back in the league.
