NBA star LeBron James recently spoke out about WNBA player Brittney Griner who recently pleaded guilty to drug possession and smuggling charges in Russia.
Griner was stopped at a Russian airport for allegedly having cannabis oil vape cartridges in her luggage, which is illegal in the country and carries a penalty of 10 years in prison.
NBA star LeBron James shockingly said she should rethink whether she even wants to come home to America. “Now, how can she feel like America has her back?” James said. “I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?’”
Fellow NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom slammed James for his comments. “”You are free to leave buddy or you can even volunteer for an exchange for her,” Kanter Freedom said. “Some people literally have NO idea what is it like to live in a dictatorship.”
This certainly isn’t the first time that James has made anti-American statements.
Kanter unleashed a tweet that takes LeBron apart:

I’m not a big fan of her being held there, but she really
screwed up when she thought she could pull the same get
out of jail cards there, that she thinks she could here.
Russia has laws on the books, and people going into that
nation need to abide by them. If you don’t, you wind up
Too soon old. Too late smart.
As for Labron, that’s how some Blacks see things. It is
foreign to me, and even to a growing body of Black people
who are waking up from the deep multi-generational sleep
they’ve been suffering from.
Sooner or later, you just can’t keep ignoring rational

C’mon, is anyone here really shocked?
Reminds me of that American kid that was vandalizing cars in Singapore. The same people crying about Griner were in an uproar when that kid was sentenced to a caning. The media left out the little detail that a car was a substantial and expensive investment to a Singaporean, and were pretty presumptive regarding that Singapore is sovereign country.
Interesting how the article title refuses to give his now new last name, FREEDOM......
One thing I respect about the Ruskies....they aren’t woke.
Pretty sure that was my comment yesterday.
Biden's done nothing about it, Lebron.
Yes Dumbron, ponder whether you would even want to return to the US and a life of celebrity and wealth for being a sports entertainer, versus staying in Russia as an unknown, imprisoned black dopehead with no career and pathetic life prospects, in a country with racism that would shame Selma in the 1920’s. Think on that long and hard dumbass; it’s a tough call.
Enes….. you are making Oklahoma proud…
I remember that, and you’re right. When we go other places,
we can’t act like we do here and get away with it.
Those are hard line law and order nations.
I think that kid did get to leave the nation without being
caned. Our nation had to go to bended knee to get it
What a jackass kid.
I agree with that.
I do think the situation over there is far worse than we
understand here though.
I’ve read some very disturbing figures about how their
poor class having expanded over the last few years.
Can’t be sure everything I hear from there or about there
is real though.
Well her ignorance and arrogance got her in a fine mess . I feel she will be there for some time .
Yay! for Enes!
James is free to move to his adored China, and I’m sure they would embrace him, and his whole team there. Take Griner with him too. (But make sure (s)HE doesn’t have any dope when you go through China Customs inspection.
