    Unless we follow RTE's stupid ruling, Enes Kanter is also Turkish. A weird cult follower he may be, but he is Turkish and no one can take it away from him.

    I'm sorry for both Bayulken and Kosova, but not surprised. his lack of character was displayed a few more times in the past.

    as for Kanter, I think he's an idiot. but a Turkish one.

    I frankly do not know his ethnicity. Where did you get that from?
    anyway, his Turkish passport was canceled, which is not justified regardless of his ethnicity.

    Being Kurdish has nothing to do with his current position. Even if he’s Kurdish background,probably he has, his cult and statements have never been Kurdish nationalist. Actually his cult is combination of Turkish nationalism and Islamism. I guess he’s assimilated Kurdish guy who stands opposite to Turkish government because of other reasons.

    Beside the politics, I think he’s underperforming. His offensive game is really strong but old school. Modern big guys should handle the ball, dribbling,make 3’s and play face up games. His playing style doesn’t fit modern basketball.
