New LeBron James accusation from Enes Kanter stokes flames of feud with Lakers star

LeBron James Enes Kanter Lakers

LeBron James has been getting attacked from all angles as of late. The Los Angeles Lakers star was already facing scrutiny from Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter off the court, but then he had the viral dust-up with Detroit Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart.

The Pistons beef was settled early with the NBA slapping both players with suspensions and the Lakers star reportedly trying to reach out to Stewart in order to apologize. However, Kanter isn’t letting King James off the hook just as easily. In another dialogue with CNN, the Turkish player claimed that LeBron’s advocacies are just a facade to help his PR.

Via CNN c/o Twitter user Acyn:

“I had so many conversations with LeBron James’ ex-teammates,” said Kanter of the Lakers star. “And even they are the one telling me that LeBron, all he’s doing is just his own PR. And everything he’s doing, trying to stand up for things, is not that he really feels about it. But he cares about his PR more than anything.”

LeBron spoke out on the call-out after the Lakers’ recent loss against Kanter’s Celtics. He claimed that Kanter had an opportunity to speak to him face-to-face but instead walked right past him. Kanter saw it differently, stating that it was James who stayed silent when he had a chance to confront him.

“First of all, he was behind me in the tunnel and I stopped to take picture with one of the kids. I wasn’t the one that right passed him. He was the one that literally walked right by me and did not say anything.”

Kanter’s definitely coming at The King and doing his best not to miss. LeBron James won’t get a chance to respond to the comments to the media as he’ll be serving a one-game suspension in the Lakers’ next game against the New York Knicks. But it sounds like this beef is far from fizzling out.
