NBA Star Rips LeBron James: ‘Keep Taking Your Freedom for Granted’

NBA star Enes Kanter Freedom has blasted LeBron James for his recent anti-American comments, warning he is taking his own “freedom for granted.”

James provoked a widespread backlash while commenting on the case of “woke” women’s basketball star Brittney Griner.

Griner is locked up in Russia facing ten years in prison on drugs charges.

In a trailer for the latest episode of his HBO show “The Shop,” James said Griner should consider not returning to the United States, arguing that the American people don’t have “her back.”

“She’s been there over 110 days,” James said.

“Now, how could she feel like America has her back?

“I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?’”

Kanter, an anti-Communist China advocate who recently changed his name to add “Freedom,” fired back at James over the comments.

“You call it a step back, we call this a walk back,” Freedom said.

“You are free to leave buddy or you can even volunteer for an exchange for her.

“Some people literally have NO idea what it is like to live in a dictatorship.

“Keep taking your freedom for granted.”

After the backlash, James tried to walk back his comments, saying:

“My comments on ‘The Shop’ regarding Brittney Griner wasn’t knocking our beautiful country.

“I was simply saying how she’s probably feeling emotionally along with so many other emotions, thoughts, etc inside that cage she’s been in for over 100+ days!

“Long story short #BringHerHome.”

Mike Huckabee also weighed in on the controversy, telling James he should “relocate” to Communist China because the country “enriches him by slave labor.”

“Maybe ‘Mr. China made me rich!’ Lebron ought to relocate to the country that enriches him by slave labor,” Huckabee said.

“If you hate America, you don’t have to stay.”
