LeBron James has responded to Enes Kanter’s new shoes mocking him.
Per USA Today Sports “One of Kanter’s shoes pictured a James-like figure being crowned by Chinese president Xi Jinping, while the other referenced James’ comments in 2019 regarding Daryl Morey’s support of protests in Hong Kong.”
“Kanter posted images of the custom sneakers on Twitter, tagging James and Nike. The caption read, “Money over Morals for the ‘King’ … Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice … They really do ‘shut up and dribble’ when Big Boss (China) says so … Did you educate yourself about the slave labor that made your shoes or is that not part of your research?””
james responded by saying “I think if you know me, you know I don’t give too many people my energy. He’s definitely not someone I would give my energy to. He’s trying to use my name to create an opportunity for himself. I definitely won’t comment too much on that.
