Enes Kanter of the Boston Celtics is one of the most courageous players in the NBA. Along with his skills on the court, he possesses a social conscience that echoes the courage of previous activist athletes such as Muhammad Ali. He has paid a heavy personal price for speaking out against the authoritarian rule of President Erdogan of Turkey. Kanter’s family back in Turkey has been harassed by the government and Kanter has been called a terrorist and enemy of the state by the government. He discusses the arrest warrant issued by the Turkish government that prevents him from traveling internationally. That means he may face arrest if he travels to Canada for the Christmas Day game against the Raptors. He has a compelling personal story, some great anecdotes about playing against OKC’s Steven Adams in practice, and explains why he no longer respects LeBron James “off the court.” And he spills about his “Cheat Days” and why they are such fun. This is the best 27 minutes you’ll listen to this week!
