Enes Freedom would like to sit down for a ‘very uncomfortable’ conversation with LeBron James

If LeBron James wants to have a conversation with Enes Freedom — formerly Enes Kanter before he became a citizen of the United States on Monday — Freedom says he’s ready.

“I’m sure it’s going to be a very uncomfortable conversation for him,” Freedom said. “I don’t know if he’s educated enough, but I’m here to educate him, and I’m here to help him.”

Freedom called out James earlier this year for his partnership with Nike — a company Freedom has targeted repeatedly for alleged supply-chain ties to human rights violations. After the Celtics played the Lakers, James claimed Freedom walked right by him without speaking.
