LeBron James’ partnership with Nike and the fact that he makes money off of the controversial country recently drew a lot of criticism. Enes Kanter called out LeBron James and he’s not alone.

James fired back at Kanter as he states that the center isn’t someone that he wants to give attention to. LeBron also failed to address the subject at hand, especially what is going on in China.

Texas senator Ted Cruz took to Twitter with some harsh words for the Lakers star. This is obviously getting a national spotlight, even in the political realm. Cruz, who is never shy about weighing in on any discussion, was quick to throw shade at King James.

@ClayTravis Serious Q: how much $$ is enough?

@KingJames has made hundreds of millions of $$. But he still wants more, so much that he is TERRIFIED to say anything negative about the evil communist dictators in China.

@EnesKanter is showing more courage than the entire @NBA

We will continue monitoring this ongoing story. LeBron is certainly aware that people are paying attention to his connection to China, but he isn’t talking about that right now.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
