Enes Kanter appears to be keeping his thoughts about LeBron James strictly on social media.
Before Friday’s Lakers-Celtics game, Kanter ripped LeBron to shreds for ignoring slave labor in China in a scathing Twitter post.
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? pic.twitter.com/YUA8rGYeoZ

Despite Kanter’s bravado on social media, the Celtics big man completely avoided LeBron while the two were on the court at the same time, which led to some interesting reactions from fans.
Moments after LeBron James walks on to the floor to warm up, right behind him is Enes Kanter who has on more than one occasion, called out LBJ for not speaking out more on social injustices outside the US. #ackward pic.twitter.com/l8lBkXcJvN

Kanter couldn’t even look at LeBron. So much for “courage.” https://t.co/Heq2sbaEc8
