Michael Jordan is certainly one of the most iconic basketball players to have ever stepped foot inside a basketball court. He is also no stranger to setting records. Now it seems Michael Jordan has been called out by Enes Kanter.
Jordan is still the king when it comes to being the richest NBA star in the history of the sport. He earned more in his business ventures than he did during his time as an active NBA player. His net worth was said to be is $2.6 billion.
On the other hand, Boston Celtics’ Enes Kanter is certainly someone who is opinionated and is never afraid to speak his mind. This includes the time he blasted NBA players who refused to get vaccinated.
While speaking on CNN, Enes Kanter called out the legendary Michael Jordan for caring more about his sneaker sales than helping the Black community. Kanter has a special disdain for Nike in general.
“Not many people are talking about Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan hasn’t done anything, nothing, for the Black community in America besides just, you know, giving them money. I feel like we need to call out these athletes. At least LeBron James is going out there and being the voice of all those people who are oppressed in America.
Jordan has not done anything for the Black community because he cares too much about his shoe sales all over the world and America.”
Enes Kanter even recently threw shade at LeBron James for his Nike deal. Naturally, LeBron James fired back at Kanter for his comments on China. Regardless, Kanter will always believe he is fighting for the right cause and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
