Enes Kanter continued to unleash against Nike and LeBron on Friday, when he got on the court and rocked some shoes that had the Chinese President annointing LeBron.
Kanter, who in previous weeks has called out Nike for having “slave labor camps,” called out James for his work with the Oregon-based sneaker giant.
“Money over Morals for the ‘King,’” Kanter tweeted, “Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice.”
After the game, LeBron was asked about Kanter, and he made it clear that he wouldn’t waste any energy on a guy who saw him in the hallway and did not say a word to him.
Before the game started, Kanter could be seen walking right past LeBron without saying a word.
Kanter previously called out James for his comments following pro-democracy protest from former Houston Rockets GM and current Philadelphia 76ers president Daryl Morey. James has been catching hell ever since he stated Morey was either misinformed or not educated on the subject. When asked for his own comments, James refused to answer about China and said he needed to conduct more research.
“They really do ‘shut up & dribble’ when Big Boss says so,” Kanter posted. “Did you educate yourself about the slave labor that made your shoes, or is that not part of your research?”
