Enes Freedom Goes Off On ‘Hypocritical’ Adam Silver And The NBA


Enes Freedom has remained unsigned since the Houston Rockets waived him shortly after acquiring him through a trade with the Boston Celtics last season.

His value has always been predicated on being an offensive contributor and steady rebounder. But his scoring and rebounding have fluctuated in recent years, while his defense leaves much to be desired, so that the 29-year old big man has become borderline unplayable at times. 

However, his declined production and poor defense may not be the only reasons why he hasn’t received any offer to play for a team since being waived. 

Freedom suspected that his figure as a political activist and vocal critic of China has played a role to his unemployment, while stating that the NBA only stands by their side when it benefits them financially. He now took a swing, not only at the NBA, but Commissioner Adam Silver specifically, for being hypocrites.


“They’re pushing me to retire at the age of 30. When you talk about some of the uncomfortable situations are happening around the world, and when your organization that you play for 11 years got tied up with billions of dollars with dictatorship, it’s tough. I’m going to push through it. I’m still working out. I’m still practicing.”

“The NBA and Adam Silver is definitely one of the most hypocritical organizations and one of the most hypocritical commissioners out there in the world. They stand up for things until it affects their money or business. Someone had to expose them and someone finally exposed them,”
