Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter is legally changing his name to “Enes Kanter Freedom,” according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Kanter will be his new middle name, with Freedom as his new last name, which should therefore eventually be the name that appears on his jerseys.

Kanter is not the first NBA player to change his name in this matter. Notably, then-Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace during his career, and then-Warriors wing Lloyd Bernard Free changed his name to World B. Free in 1981.
