Kanter confronts Yao MIng
For the past several months, Enes Kanter has made some noise but mostly for his criticism of the NBA, LeBron, Jordan, China, and now he has added a new person to his target list. This time none other than Yao Ming, the most popular athlete in China's history and a man who, after his NBA career, found himself in a role of a chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association. His primary duty now is to promote the game of basketball in China and make the country more competitive on the international scene.
As you know, Kanter has criticized China more than anyone in the NBA, and now apparently, Yao Ming took that as an offense. According to Kanter, Yao initially invited him to China but soon removed the request and deleted him from social media, which prompted Kanter to react on his Instagram account.

It will be interesting to see if there will be any response from Yao Ming because he is a very respectable person in the basketball community who doesn't speak in public that often. He was always reserved, and it's hard to imagine him starting beef with Kanter, who is recently known for creating arguments and not being afraid to speak out against anyone in the NBA or outside if he has something against them.
