Enes Freedom cited for the Nobel Peace Prize | NBA

This season, Enes Freedom has been talked about more for his political statements, his change of nationality and name or his alliances of circumstance than for his performance on the ground.

A fierce opponent of the Turkish government for years, to the point of being the target of an international arrest warrant, the former interior of Portland has targeted China for a few months. His criticisms, on Twitter or on his shoes, were intended to highlight the situation of the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority victim of strong repression, and shook the NBA.

So much so that a Norwegian parliamentarian proposed his name for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize. The one who was known as Enes Kanter is of course “honoured”.

“Sometimes taking a stand is more important than your next salary”he wrote on his Twitter account, he who is currently without a club, in reaction to this news.

According to an article by The Atlantic, thirty Nobel Peace Prize laureates had asked the Boston franchise last week to support Freedom in its fights, to be with it on the “good side of history”. As we know, the Celtics have since traded the interior to Houston, and the latter was cut in stride.

Nevertheless, it should be said that the player is not really in the race for this symbolic reward. Each year, names are proposed by former winners or members of governments and parliaments. So much so that, in the past, those of Donald Trump or Nicolas Sarkozy had been launched.

If the political fights of Enes Freedom are known, this gesture of the Norwegian parliamentarian can just as well be a tribute for the work of the NBA player as a simple political or media maneuver.
