LeBron James Fires Back at Celtics Big Man After Twitter Attack

LeBron James has fired back at a Celtics big man after a Twitter attack that left people very surprised. The Lakers have been terrible to start the season. They are losing to teams that they should be blowing out of the water. It is clear that there is more to these struggles than just a LeBron James injury. This has been part of the discussion since he went out several weeks ago. But the rest of the team is making it well known that his absence is not what is causing the issues.

But LeBron took a step back from the play on the court after Celtics big man Enes Kanter had some interesting things to say on Twitter.

“Money over morals for the “King” Sad & disgusting how these athletes pretend they care about social justice,” Kanter tweeted toward James. “They really do “shut up & dribble” when Big Boss (which was followed by the Chinese flag) says so.”

LeBron James fired back at this tweet after the game.

“No, I think if you know me, you know I don’t give too many people my energy. He’s definitely not somebody I would give my energy to,” James said after the Lakers loss. “He tried to use my name to create an opportunity for himself. I definitely won’t comment too much on that. If any, that will be where I lay that at.”

“He’s always kind of had a word or two to say at my direction,” James added. “As men, if a guy really has an issue with someone, you really come up to them. He had his opportunity tonight. I seen him in the hallway and he blew right by me.”

It is pretty clear that Enes Kanter has a problem with LeBron and his sentiment was clear. LeBron has been called out in the past for things like this and well, that comes with the territory. He picks and chooses his battles and chose not to choose one that would hurt his bottom dollar.
