Enes Freedom’s emphatic response to Twitter user saying he should be assassinated

Enes Freedom had a defiant response to a social media commenter who suggested that someone should assassinate the basketball player.

Freedom, who played the bulk of his basketball career as Enes Kanter before changing his name, has offered countless politically charged comments in recent years.

Freedom has made the claim that he’s being blackballed by the NBA for those political remarks. He specifically pointed to his severe criticism of China, whom the league markets strongly to.

Freedom’s NBA career may have come to an end. While he’s claiming politics is the reason, NBA officials would no doubt note his declining numbers in recent years.

Over the course of Freedom’s career in the NBA, he’s averaged 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. However, in 35 games this season as a member of the Boston Celtics, Freedom managed just 3.7 points and 4.6 rebounds per contest.

Last month, the Celtics dealt Freedom to the Houston Rockets, with the Rockets releasing him just four days later. Since that release, no team has apparently made an effort to sign him, with one general manager expressing doubts about that taking place.

Freedom has also pondered the idea of playing overseas at some point, specifically in Greece. Whether or not that occurs remains to be seen.

In Freedom’s Twitter post, he notably included the Twitter handle of the FBI in his brief message, given the serious nature of the threat. It seems likely that the individual in question will be questioned about the apparent threat in the near future, if possible.
