Boston Celtics games will no longer be aired by Chinese media after reserve big man Enes Kanter, a frequent social activist and critic of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, posted a video of himself sharing support for Tibet, a region governed by China, according to the New York Times.

Chinese state television broadcaster CCTV stopped broadcasting NBA games in 2019 after then-Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey shared his support for Hong Kong democracy. Games had previously resumed streaming on Tencent, the Chinese company which streams the NBA, but those involving Morey’s Philadelphia 76ers are not available in China. Celtics games had been streamed, but replays of previous games are no longer available and it appears as though live games won’t be either.
