Brittney Griner is one of the hottest topics in the world of basketball right now, as the WNBA star faces up to 10 years in prison due to a drug-related trial. The Phoenix Mercury center has been detained since February when she traveled to Russia to join a team in the middle of the WNBA offseason, but her luck quickly changed when she was detained by the police.
Many people have discussed this situation, with everybody stating they want her to be free and at home. Stephen Curry has been vocal about this; Kyrie Irving has expressed his opinion too, and recently, LeBron James made the rounds on social media for his words, with many people taking them as a shot at the US.
"Over 110 days, now, how can she feel like America has her back?" James asked. “I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?'”
Many folks reacted to this, with some being rougher on LeBron than others. Even though the player clarified his comments, the damage was done, and he received a lot of bad comments.
One of them was Enes Kanter Freedom, who has been taking shots at LeBron for a while now. The former NBA player took to Twitter to send a message to LeBron, calling him out for his words and even daring him to make an exchange with Griner.
You call it a step back, we call this a walk back.
You are free to leave buddy or you can even volunteer for an exchange for her.
Some people literally have NO idea what is it like to live in a dictatorship.
Keep taking your freedom for granted.
There is no love between these two and Freedom makes sure to confirm that whenever he can. LeBron has been vocal about certain issues in our society, but Enes has always asked for more from the King. This is another big shot at the 4x NBA champion that he takes, and it's highly likely that it won't be the last.
Meanwhile, Griner and her legal team are doing everything they can to get her free, but we still need to sit and wait for the resolution of this case.
