Russell Westbrook Mocks Enes Kanter To His Face During Lakers Game (Video)

Russell Westbrook Mocks Enes Kanter To His Face During Lakers Game (Video)

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics 117-102 on Tuesday night.

With the win, LA moved to 13-12 on the year.

The loss dropped Boston to 13-12.

Because both of these storied franchises are mired in mediocrity at this point, the biggest standout moment from the affair wasn’t really game-related. It was Lakers star Russell Westbrook openly and flagrantly mocking Enes Kanter to his face.

You will recall, Kanter has an ongoing beef with LeBron James. The pair had a pregame confrontation the last time these two teams squared off and Kanter has criticized James non-stop for what he perceives to be cowardice regarding speaking out against China.

On Tuesday night, Westbrook decided to get some measure of revenge for his teammate.

Naturally, folks on social media had some swift reactions:

At the core of the James-Kanter beef is that the former has often inserted himself into political topics, especially as they pertain to racial discrimination. Kanter finds James’ disinterest in the atrocities being committed in China hypocritical – especially given his financial incentivization to not criticize China.

Whether that is a fair point or not is something everyone can decide on their own.

One thing is for certain, though: this beef isn’t dying down any time soon.
