Enes Kanter seems disappointed with LeBron James over China remarks

Enes Kanter

Enes Kanter seems disappointed with his old nemesis.

The Boston Celtics big man sent several tweets on Monday night that seemed to be aimed at LeBron James in response to the Los Angeles Lakers star’s comments about Daryl Morey.

Speaking about the NBA’s China/Hong Kong situation, James said he did not feel the Houston Rockets GM was “educated” on the topic. James later tweeted to clarify that he meant Morey was not educated about the backlash and fallout his tweet would cause. Either way, James failed to defend Morey for standing up for democracy against a communist country.

That fact led to these Twitter responses from Kanter, whose family lives in Turkey under the authoritarian rule of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Kanter knows what it’s really like to not be free, which is why he is so outspoken. He even did not travel with the Knicks to London last season out of fear for his safety.
