Boston Celtics center Enes Freedom – a veteran NBA fellow who is one of the sport’s fiercest critics of human rights abuses – challenges NHL stars Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid to boycott the next Olympic Winter Games in Beijing.
“All the gold medals you can win in the world are not more important than your values, your principles,” Freedom said in an interview with CBC’s Power and politics. “And I feel like we have to stand up for what’s right. “Freedom was asked about Crosby and McDavid by host David Common during Friday’s interview. The two were among the first three players submitted for roster review by Hockey Canada, which is in the process of selecting its Olympic team.
The Beijing Games begin on February 4, 2022.
