Enes Kanter of the Celtics takes aim at LeBron James of the Lakers.

Enes Kanter, a veteran Turkish NBA center currently with the Boston Celtics, has long spoken out against some of the world’s most powerful figures, beginning with his home country’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whom he accuses of widespread human-rights violations.

In recent weeks, he has made similar criticisms of China’s government, particularly its president, Xi Jinping.

Kanter, however, took aim at a different powerful person on Thursday, just ahead of the Celtics’ game against the Lakers at the TD Garden in Boston.

Kanter mentioned James’ domestic efforts for social justice, but then asked why he hasn’t applied the same standard to international justice, especially in China, where the Nike shoes he promotes are made.

“Money over Morals for the ‘King.’ Sad andamp; disgusting how these athletes pretend to care about social justice They really do’shut up and dribble’ when Big Boss (China) says so,” Kanter wrote on Thursday, referring to James.

Is it part of your research or did you learn about the slave labor used to make your shoes?”

Photos of Kanter’s painted shoes, as well as an image of Xi crowning James’ head, were attached.

For the “King,” money trumps morals.

It’s sad and disgusting to see how these athletes act as if they care about social justice.

When Big Boss says “shut up and dribble,” they really do.

Kanter Sent a Tweet About LeBron James at an Appropriate Time.

Given that James and the Lakers will only visit the Celtics once this season, Kanter’s tweet is noteworthy.

The drama over whether James will play against Boston adds to the intrigue, with ESPN reporting that the odds are 50-50.

James has been out with an abdominal muscle strain since November 4.

While all signs point to James playing on Friday, anything can happen.

After years of public squabbles with Erdogan, which culminated in the Turkish government issuing nine arrest warrants for Kanter this summer, it now appears that China’s human-rights violations have captured his attention…
