NBA player Enes Kanter, who is an outspoken critic on many human rights issues, became a US citizen Monday, legally changed his name to Enes Kanter Freedom to celebrate his new status.

The Boston Celtics center told interviewers on Monday night that from this time onward, “Freedom” will be his last name, and Kanter will be his middle name, in deference to his parents.

He told interviewers from the Boston television station WCVB that while growing up in Turkey, he “never knew what freedom was.”
