Enes Kanter Freedom nominated for the Nobel Prize

NBA basketball player Enes Kanter Freedom has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2022.

Shortly after learning that he was a nominee, he took to Twitter:

I am honored and humbled to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. “Sometimes taking a stand is more important than the next salary,” Enes Freedom wrote.

He also shared an article highlighting his humanitarian work and publicizing human rights violations in China.

Kanter is also a big supporter of the “Free Tibet” movement, which criticizes China and its authorities.

The Turkish NBA star was nominated for this award by a member of the Norwegian parliament, who was supported by 30 Nobel laureates, who in a letter called on Boston, Kanter’s former team, to support him and stand by him.

The Celtics traded him to Houston a week ago, who fired him immediately, so he is currently a free agent.

Freedom has been playing in the NBA for 11 seasons.
