Fallin names day in Enes Kanter’s honor. Welcome Home Enes

NBA: Preseason-Denver Nuggets at Oklahoma City Thunder Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t pretend to understand all the political nuances that drove a wedge between Oklahoma City Thunder big man, Enes Kanter, and his family, but what I do know is Kanter is a man that believes in freedom and human rights. A man with those principles deserves a home and Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin made it official Saturday when she officially declared October 29th, 2016, Enes Kanter Day.

Welcome home Enes, it’s official, no matter where you go or what you do, you will always have family waiting for you in the Sooner State.
