LeBron James vs Enes Kanter’s : LeBron responds to criticism
Prior to the Lakers’ Friday matchup against the Celtics, Enes Kanter called out LeBron James on Twitter for his and Nike’s continued business in China, and announced that he would be wearing shoes criticizing the Lakers star.
Enes Kanter added:
" Did you educate yourself about the slave labour that made your shoes, or is that not part of your study?"
After the game, James was asked if he had any reaction to Kanter's review, and although he said "no," he later spoke for a little less than a minute about why he wouldn't be specifically rebutting Kanter's call-out.
“I think if you know me, I don’t really give too many people my energy. And he’s definitely not someone I will give my energy to. Trying to use my name to create an opportunity for himself,”
But then LeBron added :
But as men, if you had an issue with somebody you’d really come up to them. And he had his opportunity tonight. I saw him in the hallway and he walked right by me
