Boston Celtics Player Enes Kanter Just Changed His Last Name To "FREEDOM” And Became An American Citizen ✊🇺🇸
· Nov 30, 2021 ·

Find you someone who loves you like Enes Kanter loves the United States of America.

Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter has been in the news a few times lately, all for good reasons.

He's been a very vocal opponent of the Chinese commies and a critic of corporations like Nike that legitimize the communist dictatorship.

You'll remember he also wore shoes in a game recently to poke fun at LeBron James and his relationship with China.

Enes also wrote an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal calling for the upcoming Winter Olympics to be moved from China after the strange disappearance of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai.

Last week, Kanter legally changed his last name to "Freedom" in anticipation of becoming a US citizen.

And then on Monday, November 29, Enes Kanter Freedom officially became a citizen of the United States of America.

He shared the video of the ceremony on his Twitter account:

His "U.S. Citizen" shirt, signing his name as just the word "FREEDOM", and the love he shows for this country… it all reminds you what makes America great.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had this to say about the former citizen of Turkey:

Enes Kanter Freedom is a champion of liberty everywhere. Whether it's in his home country of Turkey or communist-controlled China, the basketball player is not afraid to be vocal about real oppression.

He's proud to be a new citizen of what he rightly calls the "greatest nation in the world".

And I, for one, am glad to have him.

Welcome home, Enes.
