    The Boston Celtics player has been an outspoken critic of the Chinese dictatorship, and his latest video took direct aim at the nationís cozy relationship with Nike. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In

    Kanter said the following in part in a video tweeted Monday afternoon:

    When it comes to China, Nike remains silent. You do not address police brutality in China. You do not speak about discrimination about the
    LGBTQ community. You do not say a word about the oppression of
    minorities in China. You are scared to speak up. Who makes your shoes
    in China? Do you even know? There are so many forced labor factories in
    China. For instance, Uyghur forced labor. A modern day slavery, and
    itís happening right now in China.

    This is what true bravery looks like. Kanter has absolutely nothing to
    gain by criticizing Nike and China, and he 100% has everything to lose.

    China is an oppressive dictatorship that attempts to get the NBA to
    bend to its will, and the league does it more times than not.

    Now, one of the more notable players in the league and a third overall
    draft pick is going after the dictatorship for violating human rights
    and going after Nike for not speaking up for people.

    Everything the media wanted you to believe about Colin Kaepernick,
    Kanter is actually that guy. Heís actually willing to stick his neck
    out on the line.

    Thereís a real chance if the Chinese government applied enough
    pressure, teams wouldnít sign him. Yet, he still speaks up for the
    voiceless.

    It will be fascinating to see how the NBA responds to this situation.
    Nike is arguably the biggest brand in all of basketball and the league
    loves China. They wonít love these comments from Kanter, but he still
    deserves to be applauded for speaking his mind.
