Prominent China’s slave labor critic Enes Kanter Freedom said on Friday that he couldn’t believe Democratic party activist LeBron James said National anthem boycotter Brittney Griner should reconsider coming back to the U.S. after being detained in Russia for over 100 days.

“It just makes me really sad and breaks my heart when people take their freedom for granted. So that’s why I was like, I was very confused,” Kanter Freedom told ‘America’s Newsroom’ host Bill Hemmer.

Enes Kanter Freedom – an outspoken human rights activist – was traded by the Boston Celtics to Houston Rockets at the trading deadline. The Rockets waived him on Feb. 14.

The free-agent NBA big man has played 11 seasons for 5 teams, including the Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz. He has averaged 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds in 748 regular-season games.
