NBA Basketball Player Enes Kanter on the Armenian Genocide: “I heard from many people that it did happen.”

While on the road in Dallas, NBA’s Enes Kanter stopped by the Valuetainment studio for a sit down with Patrick Bet-David.

Enes Kanter, is a Swiss-born Turkish professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. He was originally selected as the third overall pick of the 2011 NBA draft by the Utah Jazz.

Patrick Bet-David and Enes Kanter discussed various topics such as: Enes Kanter’s NBA Career, U.S. – Turkey Relations, Erdogan – Gulen Relations, 2016 Fake Turkish Coup, and the Armenian Genocide.

In September, Kanter slammed freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar for voting against a bill to impose economic sanctions on Turkey over its offensive against Kurdish forces in northern Syria, per The New York Post.

“What an absolute disappointment and shame that the only democrat who did NOT support the Turkish bill aiming to stop the killing of innocent people is @IlhanMN who seems like on #DictatorErdogan ‘s payroll working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!” tweeted @EnesKanter.

Kanter, who has vocally clashed with Ankara in the past, had his passport revoked in Romania in 2017 and claimed later that his father had been arrested by Turkish authorities, according to The Hill.
In January, he didn’t travel with the New York Knicks — his team at the time — to London because of death threats.
