Prominent China’s slave labor critic Enes Kanter Freedom shared some of his thoughts about the news that a bunch of NBA principal owners collectively have more than $10 billion tied up in communist China, via Fox News:
“Human rights violations happen all around the world. We have to call them out like it is. And… for the NBA, moral[ity] matter[s] until money or business are involved. So that is the one thing that was breaking my heart. And all these owners – there are 50 NBA owners – are making profit off of slave labor.”
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.
