Recently a Turkish NBA player, Enes Kanter of the Boston Celtics, wore sneakers during a game that said “FREE TIBET” on them. He’s also been an outspoken critic China’s Xi (called him a brutal dictator) and China’s oppressive treatment of the Uyghurs and other human rights violations. China immediately pulled all Celtics games from their streaming service and doesn’t allow the sale of anything Celtic in the country. China is a huge market for the NBA and they have looked the other way regarding China’s atrocities, and even criticizing some of it’s own for pointing out the plight of Tibet, the Uyghurs, etc. The woke NBA seems to care more about $$$ than actual human rights.
Back to Turkey. Kanter has been critical of Erdogan and the massive corruption in Turkey. Because of that there is an extradition order from Turkey. The US is not recognizing it, but some countries do. Kanter can no longer travel to certain places for fear of being grabbed. He would be “disappeared” if he ever steps foot in Turkey again. I believe he’s now an official US citizen.
