Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter has been vocal in his criticisms of China or any NBA player who he feels has aligned themselves with the interests of the Chinese government. Kanter took to Twitter in another anti-China rant, this time focusing his ire on Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai.

These are strong words from Enes Kanter on Nets owner Joe Tsai. Kanter feels that Tsai, who is also the co-founder of Alibaba Group Holding, an online-retail giant, is enabling China.

Tsai, who purchased the Nets in 2019, came under fire two years ago for comments he made about Hong Kong protesters, calling them ‘separatists,’ which people tabbed as language similar to the rhetoric used by the Chinese government to characterize those doing the protesting.

He’s also come under fire for voicing support of American protests, while not lending the same support to Chinese protests.

Whether or not people agree or disagree with Enes Kanter and his latest tirade aimed at Tsai, it’s a good thing when athletes utilize the platform they have to voice their opinions. This isn’t the first time Kanter has voiced his displeasure with China- and it may not be the last.

It’s clear that Celtics center Enes Kanter isn’t afraid to speak his mind on things he feels are wrong, a quality sometimes overlooked.
