Would You Give Your Energy to Those Suffering Under Communist China Rule?

‘He’s Definitely Not Someone I Would Give My Energy To’: LeBron James On Enes Kanter’s Criticism | The Daily Wire

Kanter has more class in his little finger than you do in your entire body LeBron. You should be hoping he’d give his energy to you.

Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter has been using his platform to advocate for human rights around the world, taking aim at the Chinese government for their human rights abuses.

It’s wonderful to see an athlete protesting actual injustice instead of the made up kind.

As The Daily Wire reported, Kanter took to social media on Thursday with a message for James accompanied by pictures of his custom footwear.

“Money over Morals for the ‘King’ Crown. Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice,” Kanter said, referring to James. “They really do ‘shut up & dribble’ when Big Boss [Flag of China] says so. Did you educate yourself about the slave labor that made your shoes or is that not part of your research?”

It will be interesting to see what happens here. Someone like Kanter was always inevitable. The NBA is so woke and so much of a suck up to China that it’s ridiculous. You had to know that not everyone would be 100% on board. It will be interesting to see if anyone follows Kanter down this path. One malcontent the NBA can smooth over. A movement is a problem for it.

Following the Lakers’ 130-108 loss, James was asked if had a reaction to Kanter’s shoes “in his advocacy for human rights.”

“No, I think if you know me, I don’t really give too many people my energy,” James said. “He’s definitely not someone I would give my energy to. [He’s] trying to use my name to create an opportunity for himself. Definitely won’t comment too much on that …”

Personally, it seems to me that LeBron is very brittle here. I think he knows he’s on the wrong side.
