NBA player Enes Kanter is calling the president of his native Turkey the "Hitler of our century." Kanter offered that assessment of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan during a press conference Monday. Kanter is the starting center for the Oklahoma City Thunder and he was on a charity and promotional tour of Europe when Turkey canceled his passport over the weekend.
Kanter is an outspoken critic of Erdogan and he told reporters that the Turkish president is "going to try to shut down" anyone who tries to go against him.
