Enes Kanter was on “CBS This Morning”

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.

      Really sucks that he can’t enjoy himself and go wherever he wants just because of his political beliefs against his own country tho.

    It would be funny if he really was an agent for someone. But he’s also lucky he’s famous and valuable to an NBA franchise or he probably wouldn’t have made it back. He’s also lucky Turkey’s illustrious and totally reasonable leader didn’t try to make an example out of him and call his buddy President Trump to get any support from the US pulled. Now isn’t the best time for foreign nationals coming and going from the US.
