Enes Kanter Freedom attacks Jeremy Lin: "Morals over Money brother"

Enes Kanter Freedom & Jeremy Lin

Enes Kanter is back at it again this time criticizing Jeremy Lin

No one is safe against Enes Kanter Freedom’s rant. Not Nike, not LeBron James, not China, not Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and even not Michael Jordan. Now he’s added Jeremy Lin as his next target, and he had plenty to say to the former NBA player. 

Freedom attacks Jeremy Lin 

Enes Kanter Freedom is now targetting ex-NBA player Jeremy Lin for his decision to play for China, specifically for Beijing Ducks. Lin, who played for New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Charlotte Hornets, L.A. Lakers, Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, and Toronto Raptors, is now back in China as the next destination of his career. He hinted earlier this year he is ready to retire due to not getting offers to return to the NBA and last played in the league in 2019. 

The 30-year-old played for the Ducks after his NBA stint. His performance caught the eye of the G-League team Santa Cruz Warriors where he averaged 20 points on 50 percent shooting on the floor, but the impressive numbers failed to get the attention of an NBA team. Instead of retiring, Lin returned to Beijing to resume his CBA career. Meanwhile, this move did not sit well with Freedom, who claims Jeremy Lin should choose morals over money. 

“Shane on you Jeremy Lin. Haven’t you had enough of that Dirty Chinese Communist Party money feeding you to stay silent? How disgusting of you to turn your back against your country & your people. Stand with Taiwan! Stop bowing to money & the Dictatorship. Morals over Money brother.”

Lin holds a Taiwanese passport as both his parents are Taiwanese, but he grew up in California. Taiwan has been at odds with China due to autonomy issues in recent years. Enes Kanter Freedom has criticized China for its treatment of the Uyghur community, and it seems anyone associated with or openly supporting the country will not be spared from his attacks.

Things are getting out of hand now 

The Boston Celtics center drew support from Gregg Popovich and irked players such as LeBron and Shaquille O’Neal, who defended MJ’s contribution to the Black community. Freedom is using his platform to voice his concerns but does he have any secret agendas in mind? James certainly thinks so. 

Enes has worn customized shoes detailing the messages he wants to convey, to which LeBron responded. 

"He's trying to use my name to create an opportunity for himself...As a man, if you've got an issue with somebody, you come up to him. He had his opportunity tonight. I seen him in the hallway & he walked right by me.”

Kanter has the right to voice his opinions, especially if it involves the rights of others. But if he steps on the rights of others or destroys their peace at the expense of his own beliefs, that’s when things can get out of hand.
