The Los Angeles Lakers took revenge on the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, beating them 117-102 at Crypto.com Arena following a terrible first duel for the purple and gold. LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook played great, recording the best collective performance of the season for the trio.
It was a sweet night for the Lakers, including Bron, who had the chance to taunt Enes Kanter Freedom while discussing a foul with the Celtics bench. After their first encounter, LeBron called out Freedom for walking by him and not saying anything, but the Turkish-American player replied by saying it was LeBron who didn't speak to him at TD Garden.
Last night, the moment was caught on camera, with Kanter being close to LeBron and not saying anything to The King, who debated a prior foul on Dennis Schroder with the rivals.
After footage saw the light, NBA fans didn't hesitate to criticize Enes Kanter Freedom, saying he's scared of LeBron James. Others, defended the big man, asking if they expect two professional athletes to start discussing politics in the middle of the game.
This debate has earned a lot of attention and criticism for both LeBron and Enes. They have a long-tenured feud and the latter's words have worsened everything. Now the back and forth has resurfaced, but Kanter hasn't looked good in the past weeks.
Now fans are against Enes given his outspokenness, which got a lot worse after his 'freeze-out' moment in front of James, the face of the NBA. The Celtics lost by 15 and he looked bad against his nemesis. It wasn't a good night for the Turkish player.
