In his interview, Turkoglu repeatedly referenced Gulen as a terrorist and Kanter’s support of him as treasonous. Turkoglu said Kanter uses his NBA stardom as a “platform for propaganda of [a] terrorist leader.” He said he spoke to E:60 to raise awareness about Turkey’s view of Kanter and Gulen. “So, obviously, it’s our job sometimes to speak loudly and clearly to inform everybody about the real situation.”

Another former NBA player, Hedo Turkoglu, is now a chief adviser to Erdogan. He’s criticized you on Twitter. What’s your message to him? Enes Kanter: I called him a lapdog because he has to follow every comment that Erdogan gives him. We were really good friends back in 2011. We played on the same national team. All the stuff that’s going on right now, he cannot really talk freely because of his fear of President Erdogan. He’s losing so many fans, so many friends in America because of what he’s doing.

Kanter insisted that he could travel anywhere in the world and proceeded to display what he said was a travel document to the CNN cameras in an effort to prove his point. “It’s very sad because we were really good friends back in 2011,” said Kanter of his relationship with Turkoglu. “I know he did not do such a thing like that. I know the government made him do things like that. “He put a tweet out there and said it’s a visa issue, then after that I talked to Knicks and I tried to explain it’s not a visa issue. Yes, I can go to London if I want to. They said the best thing is just stay there and be safe for now.
Enes Kanter: This is my travel document: It’s NOT a visa issue!!! I CAN go to London. Either you are delusional, or still Erdogan’s lap dog.. Keep wagging your tail @hidoturkoglu15 @RT_Erdogan #DictatorErdogan 🇹🇷
