The Enes Kanter-LeBron James beef continues.
Last week, Kanter called out LeBron for ignoring slave labor in China while working with Nike in a social media 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

After the Celtics-Lakers game on Friday, LeBron blasted Kanter and chided the Celtics big man for not confronting him in person.
LeBron on Enes Kanter: "He's trying to use my name to create an opportunity for himself…As a man, if you've got an issue with somebody, you come up to him. He had his opportunity tonight. I seen him in the hallway & he walked right by me.pic.twitter.com/KYDh5o6AMA

On Sunday night, Kanter spoke to CNN’s Pamela Brown and responded by saying that LeBron chose not to confront him during the Celtics-Lakers game.
Brown: Why haven’t you gone up to LeBron and spoken to him face to face?
Kanter: I wasn’t the one that right passed him. He was the one that literally walked right by me and did not say anything pic.twitter.com/bzJcw5HaRn

Kanter went on to claim that LeBron’s former teammates believe the Lakers star is being fake when he speaks on social justice issues.
