Enes Kanter made a special guest appearance on “CBS This Morning” to explain his crazy weekend. He said the trouble began in Indonesia, telling CBS, “I was sleeping around 2:30 or something and my manager knocked on my door. He said the Secret Service and the Indonesian army were looking for me because the Turkish government told them I was a dangerous man… We didn’t know what we had to do. We escaped the country and went to Singapore, then we came to Romania.”
Meanwhile, back in America, the Oklahoma City Thunder, NBA, NBA Players Association and many others were working hard to get Kanter back in the United States without a passport, because his had been canceled. He eventually made it to London and then flew back to the U.S. with help from Homeland Security and the State Department.
Hear it all for yourself:
Kanter now plans to become an American citizen.
