Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 3.00.29 PM Enes Kanter is caught up in a bizarre situation today after receiving a tweet last night from U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Bharara congratulated Kanter on the Thunder's NBA Playoff run, and now people in Turkey are freaking out over the connection between Attorney Bharara, Kanter and a reclusive Turkish cleric, exiled from the country and living in Pennsylania, who is accused by Turkey's President of plotting to bring down the government. It sounds like a really bad movie and it all blew up last night with this tweet: https://twitter.com/PreetBharara/status/737485289388642304 All of the connections and corruption and secretive religious movements fly way above my head without having known anything about any of it until five minutes ago. (I'm a little behind on my scandals within the Turkish government.) But Bloomberg has more on the former Wildcat, the US. Attorney, and some guy in Pennsylvania labeled as Turkey's second-most powerful man and one of the country's biggest terrorists. Read all about it here. I'll offer my two cents by simply saying, "Free Enes."
