In a recent interview with CNN, Kanter went as far as to suggest that athletes should boycott the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

China was not pleased with the comments and subsequently pulled Boston Celtics games from from Chinese streaming platforms.

Kanter has just appeared in 9 games this season for the Celtics averaging just over 4 points and 5 rebounds in those appearances.
