Kanter, who is Turkish, has been a vocal critic of Erdoğan's authoritarian regime in the country, and when he was trying to fly on Saturday morning through Romania, it appears that the President — or someone in the Turkish government — got to him.

At least, that's what Kanter thinks.

Here he is describing what happened in a video he posted to Twitter shortly after being detained, on his birthday no less, (below):

Basketball Will Finally Allow Players To Wear Hijabs During Games!

Filed under: ZportzPolitikBasketballGotta Have Faith

basketball players can now wear hijabs

What a wonderful development.

On Thursday, it was revealed that the International Basketball Federation, also known as FIBA, has changed its stance on the issue about players wearing hijabs during games. While the religious headdress was previously banned on safety grounds, the organization has since reviewed its policy after first making exceptions for players back in 2014.

Well, after the governing body met at its congress in Hong Kong, FIBA agreed to a new rule which allows athletes to wear headgear, as long as there is no risk of injury and it matches a team's uniform colors. AH-Mazing!

FIBA addressed the rule change in a statement on their website:

"The new rule comes as a result of the fact that traditional dress codes in some countries — which called for the head and/or entire body being covered — were incompatible with FIBA's previous headgear rule."

We're sure players across the globe are thrilled with this change. *Snaps*

This should teach Thomas a lesson!

A father recently attended the Cleveland Cavaliers/Charlotte Hornets game — but all eyes were on him as he trolled his son in the most petty way ever!

The dad held up a petty (professionally printed, we might add) sign that read:

"Thomas get your grades back up and next time you'll be here. Love, Dad"

LOLz!

Kourtney Kardashian attends basketball game in lace-up leather.

Kourtney Kardashian sure loves her lace-up pants.

The reality star wore the hard-to-miss ensemble while attending the Lakers vs Cavaliers game Sunday in LA.

Is it just us or is it kind of random to pair the sexy pants with a bulky Yeezus sweatshirt? We're not sure we like it.

While there, Kourt also took the time to pose with James F. Goldstein, an NBA "superfan" and millionaire who attends over 100 games per season.

Also random, but Kourtney looked happy to be seen with him, so whatever!

A Louis Vuitton mini backpack and clear strappy sandals completed the 37-year-old's look.

Thoughts???
