Kanter draws support of union after drawing jeers

Kanter draws support of union after drawing jeers

The National Basketball Players Association issued a statement on Thursday in support of Enes Kanter after the Turkish big man took to social media to call out mistreatment from Denver Nuggets fans and the NBA Turkey Twitter account.

"The National Basketball Players Association fully supports our players using their platforms to stand up for their beliefs and the principles they support.

After playing a vital role in the Portland Trail Blazers' Game 2 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday, center Kanter was curiously left out of a tweet by the NBA Turkey Twitter account referencing the top performers from the game.

In Turkey, Kanter's Twitter account has been banned for the last couple of years, and games he plays in have been censored as well.

The NBA Europe account put up a corrected post soon after including Kanter, with an apology.
