Enes Kanter Freedom rips Adam Silver and NBA as ‘hypocrites’


Prominent China’s slave labor critic Enes Kanter Freedom just went in on the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver – calling them hypocrites … and telling TMZ Sports he believes they’re trying to force him to retire due to his willingness to speak his mind:

“They’re pushing me to retire at the age of 30, unfortunately. I’m going to push through it. I’m still working out. I’m still practicing,” Enes said.

“But, the one thing I can say is, the NBA and Adam Silver is definitely one of the most hypocritical organizations and one of the most hypocritical commissioners out there in the world.”

Enes Kanter Freedom – an outspoken human rights activist – was traded by the Boston Celtics to Houston Rockets at the trading deadline. The Rockets waived him on Feb. 14.

The free-agent NBA big man has played 11 seasons for 5 teams, including the Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz. He has averaged 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds in 748 regular-season games.
