NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom ripped Lebron James a new asshole over his comments regarding Brittney Griner’s drug arrest in Russia.
Lebron said if he were Brittney Griner he would question returning to the United State.
Enes Kanter Freedom’s answer was eloquent:
“You call it a step back, we call this a walk back.
You are free to leave buddy or you can even volunteer for an exchange for her.
Some people literally have NO idea what is it like to live in a dictatorship.
Keep taking your freedom for granted.”
Lebron tried to explain away his comments but it was too late. We all know that Lebron is a great basketball player, but an asshole in person.
By the way, Enes Kanter Freedom has been outspoken on a great many things. He spoke out against China (where the NBA is attempting to build a following), and now he has been essentially kicked out of the NBA.
I guess that is the price you pay for free speech.
