Free-agent basketball player and newfound right-wing “free speech” martyr Enes Kanter Freedom begged edgelord billionaire Elon Musk to buy the NBA on Thursday, calling it “my dream” as Musk could potentially force a franchise to bring him back to the league.

Freedom has become a cause célèbre on the right in recent months over his pointed criticism of the NBA for its relationship with China and other authoritarian regimes. That fame only grew among conservatives after the Houston Rockets waived the 29-year-old center in February following a deadline trade deal with the Boston Celtics, prompting Freedom and others to claim he was “canceled” for his outspokenness and for being invited to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

While Freedom’s NBA unemployment likely has more to do with his rapidly diminishing basketball skills than the “woke” league trying to silence him, it hasn’t stopped both him and conservative media from peddling a “cancel culture” narrative about his lack of play. But now it appears he’s found a potential savior in the right’s newest hero.

During a Thursday afternoon appearance on Fox News, Freedom was ostensibly on to talk about the NBA’s hypocrisy as it relates to doing business with the United Arab Emirates. Specifically, the league has faced criticism for agreeing to stage games in the UAE, where homosexuality is punishable by death. (A few years ago, the NBA pulled its All-Star Game out of Charlotte over North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law.)

Eventually, though, Fox News co-anchor Gillian Turner asked Freedom whether he felt he had a place in the NBA in the future or if that door was closed.

“That’s my goal,” he replied. “I’m 29 years old, but they are pushing me to retire at the age of 29 because I speak out, and whenever I speak out it hurts their business, hurts their money and that shows one more time they care more about money and business than, you know, what players are standing for, and that is the one thing that kills me inside.”

He continued to assert that he is no longer in the league because his criticism forced the NBA to stop playing games in China, causing executives to lose revenue. “I just wish one player can join me so we can stop this whole thing,” Freedom added.
