Thunder star Enes Kanter has been disowned by his family in Turkey because he's chosen to follow an American-based Imam who's perceived by the President of Turkey as being an enemy of the state.
Politics aside, it certainly puts the recent decisions made by other Thunder stars in perspective.
Here's what you had to say, Jonathon from Yukon first, "It certainly puts the glitz and glamour of the NBA in perspective. It doesn't seem so important all of a sudden."
Patrick writes, "FAITH first, Family second…sad situation when that choice has to be made. You have a family in OKC."
Yvette theorizes, "They had to disown him for their own safety, he knows that…it doesn't help his heart much."
That could be, but I haven't seen any reports that support that theory.
Edward writes from Fairview, "I have come to respect Enes more than ever, seeing his post this summer for all the travels to foreign countries."
Pearl from Edmond, "Enes Kanter is one very great guy! I'm so sorry he has endured such loss."
Bill says of Kanter's decision, "A special kind of brave."
Elizabeth from Yukon, "I bet there's numerous Oklahomans who would be glad to call him their son!"
Finally, Jill in Harrah says, "He can come be a part of my family...we're a blast"
