Chances are that you’ve heard of Enes Kanter at some point over the last few years… The star center for the Boston Celtics, who originally comes from Turkey, is outspoken about his negative views on the regime of President Erdogan.
As a result, the Turkish officials have taken away his passport, labeled him as a ‘terrorist’ and put his name on the International Criminal Police Organization.
Since 2017, Enes Kanter has been trapped in the United States of America and is not able to cross any international borders until he (hopefully) is granted citizenship here in 2021.
I was lucky enough to arrange a video call with Enes yesterday, and here is his full story — it’s a story of boldness and courage. It is not easy to speak up for what you believe in these days, with all of the haters that come along with it. I truly admire Enes and wish him the best of luck for the remaining of the NBA season, and getting his U.S. Passport soon!!
