LeBron on Enes Kanter's China Criticism: 'Trying to Use My Name to Create…Opportunity for Hi


In his post-game presser, a reporter asked, "Lebron, do you have any reaction to Enes Kanter using your likeness on his shoes in his advocacy for human rights?"

"No, I think if you know me, I don't really give too many people my energy. He's definitely not someone I would give my energy to," James replied. "Um, you know, trying to use my name to create, you know, an opportunity for himself. Definitely won't comment too much on that, if any, and that will be where I lay that at."

Breitbart News's Warner Todd Huston previously reported on the new shoe design earlier in the week as Kanter tweeted images of the shoes:

"Money over Morals for the 'King,'" Kanter sharply tweeted.

"Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice," Kanter continued. "They really do "shut up & 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?" He said.
