Enes Kanter Freedom isn’t happy about former NBA player Jeremy Lin choosing to play in the Chinese Basketball Association and called on him to “stand with Taiwan.”
Enes Kanter Freedom on Twitter hit Jeremy Lin, saying:
“Shame on you @JLin7
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 is currently a guard for the Beijing Ducks. The former NBA player known as “Linsanity” acknowledged that his comeback bid would not be fully completed and announced that he was abandoning his hopes to return to the NBA after a call-up to the league never came.
“For months, I saw others get contracts, chances, opportunities,” Lin wrote on Instagram May 18. “I told myself I just need ONE ten-day contract, one chance to get back on the floor and I would blow it out the water. After all that’s how my entire career started – off one chance to prove myself. For reasons I’ll never fully know, that chance never materialized. But I proved I’m better than ever and an NBA player.”
Lin then announced in June that he would be rejoining the Ducks in the Chinese Basketball Association for the 2021-22 season.
Kanter has been going after everyone, and let’s be honest, he hasn’t been very productive with these attacks. His message isn’t bad, but he should ask these players for help and not antagonize them.
I believe that this will be Kanter’s last year in the league, he is just burning way too many bridges, and the NBA doesn’t want issues with China.
That is very clear, so Kanter is skating on thin ice, very thin ice.
