Lebron James fined $15k by NBA

Lebron James was handed a $15,000 fine for his “big balls” celebration against the Indians Pacers. Termed an “obscene gesture” by the league, the “incident” occurred late in the fourth quarter of the Lakers 124-116 cone-from-behind win.

Enes Kanter takes shot at Lebron and China with messages on his shoes

Enes Kanter has had a lot to say, as of late , and particularly as it relates to Lebron James. His appearance on CNN where he displayed an unmitigated effrontery to speak on black issues , lecturing Lebron on his “responsibility” to ensure the black community got the COVID-19 vaccination. Seemingly emboldened by that national television exposure, Kanter set his sights on the NBA and Nike, going after the two entities for their association with China, in lieu of the country’s alleged treatment of the Uyghurs. If Kanter has a…
