Celtics Center Enes Kanter is now the center of the Celtics formerly known as Enes Kanter. Based on Shams Charania Stadium, the 29-year-old player plans to change his name.
‘Kanter’ will now be his middle name and he is taking ‘Freedom’ as his new last name. His new full name is ‘Enes Kanter Freedom.’
Having ‘Freedom’ on the back of his shirt is nothing new for the veteran centre-back. He chose that as his social justice message as players wore words or slogans in addition to their names during the COVID 2020 bubble.
