Enes Freedom last played in the NBA with the Boston Celtics in the 2021–2022 season, almost two years ago. He claims he is still unsigned, despite being only 30 years old, because of his blunt political criticism of LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Others, however, point at his shortcomings as a player. His 6-foot-10 height and excellent rebounding abilities on the court contrast with his poor pick-and-roll defence.

His outspoken political position also contributes to the lack of contract offers, as teams are wary of media attention for an ailing, defensively inept backup centre. Freedom averaged 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds during 748 games throughout his 11 NBA seasons with clubs including the Jazz, Knicks, Celtics, and Blazers.

Freedom wants to try his luck in women’s league

Enes Freedom has switched his attention from the NBA to the WNBA in order to pursue his basketball goals. In an unexpected turn, Freedom joked about the possibility of donning a wig and playing in the women’s league, claiming that he could score a whopping 60 points.

He joked about playing in the women’s league during a Fox News interview.

“If I’m allowed in I would average 60 points and 30 rebounds,” he said, according to an article on sportskeeda.com.

Freedom never scored 60 points in an NBA game. His highest was 33 points in an NBA game in 2016. But he did secure 30 rebounds in 2021 while playing for the New York Knicks.

Freedom was criticised for his remarks. It’s actions like this that make it difficult for the journeyman centre to get a job on any team.
