LeBron James Says, ‘He’s Definitely Not Someone I Will Give My Energy’ When Asked About Enes Kanter Sneakers

When it was reported that LeBron James would be participating in Friday’s game, fans rejoiced – still, the Los Angeles Lakers succumbed to the Boston Celtics 130-108.

During a press conference after the game, James was asked about Celtics player Enes Kanter – of whom he replied, “If you know me, I don’t give too many people my energy, and he’s definitely not someone I will give my energy to.” 

Injuries kept James absent from half of the Lakers’ games this season. The team hasn’t done well in his absence. But his comments about Kanter comes after the Celtics player used James’ likeness in a sneaker and now viral tweet. 

On Thursday, Kanter, who plays center for the Celtics, took to Twitter to express his frustration with the Laker for not standing against Nike for their alleged use of slave labor in China. 

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
