LeBron James upset a lot of people with his recent comments on the ongoing situation between the NBA and China, and it appears Andrew Bogut is one of them.

James made his first comments about the ongoing international saga Monday, and drew harsh criticism for saying he believed Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who's tweet in support of protestors in Hong Kong started the ordeal, was "misinformed or not really educated on the situation." The Lakers star immediately backtracked, claiming his criticism came from his belief that Morey didn't know how the tweet would impact the NBA and the Lakers' trip to China, and had nothing to do with the issues facing Hong Kong and China.

On Tuesday, Bogut appears to call out James in a cryptic tweet.

While that could be about a number of things, the timing suggests the former Warriors center was taking a shot at James for his statement.

James has faced loads of criticism in the days since his comments, so a tweet from Bogut is unlikely to ruffle his feathers.

Back on the hardwood, the Warriors have been struggling with James' Lakers in the preseason, losing all three contests while getting dominated on the glass.

Washington on Wednesday ordered the suspension of all flights by Chinese airlines into and out of the United States after Beijing failed to allow American carriers to resume services to China. The US action takes effect June 16 but could be implemented sooner if President Donald Trump orders it, the Department of Transportation (DOT) said. The suspension applies to seven Chinese civilian carriers, although only four currently are running services to US cities, including Air China and China Eastern Airlines, the Department of Transportation (DOT) said.
