Celtics center Enes Kanter ripped LeBron James for his relationship with Nike, making a bold claim about China possibly using slave labor to produce Bron’s shoes. We can let the fact checkers look that up to see what’s going on in China, while we focus on the drama unfolding in the NBA.

What we do know is that James has a ‘lifetime contract’ with Nike and Kanter called him out for being ‘complicit to China‘ and not speaking against Nike’s alleged ways of getting things done or made.

Kanter often speaks out for human rights issues in China, so of course he had a lot to say about James and it all boiled down to a single tweet, saying: “Money over Morals for the “King”  Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice They really do “shut up & dribble” when Big Boss  says so. Did you educate yourself about the slave labor that made your shoes or is that not part of your research?

Kanter is so outspoken that he’s already prompted a response from China on another issue! Kanter called out China directly and their government reacted to his criticism.
