Frank Ntilikina And Enes Kanter Both Get Heated With LeBron James On The Court

Over the weekend, LeBron James caused a bit of a stir within the Knicks team when he said implied New York should have drafted Dennus Smith JR. instead of Frank Ntilikina in June’s draft.

The Knicks passed on a really good one, and Dallas got the diamond in the rough,” “He should be a Knick. That’s going to make some headlines, but he should be a Knick. Dallas is definitely, I know they’re excited that he didn’t go there.”

LeBron’s comments prompted Knicks center Enes Kanter to fire back at LeBron on social media.

‘I don’t care who. I cannot let anyone disrespect my family like that’. @Enes_Kanter on LeBron

Before tonight’s game, LeBron clarified his comments and appeared to fire a shot at Enes Kanter.

I wasn’t even thinking about (Frank Ntilikina) when I was talking about Dennis Smith. I was thinking about just the Knicks organization & Phil Jackson at the time & Dennis Smith’s talent & (his fit with Kristaps) Porzingis & that’s all I was thinking about.”

“I wasn’t throwing shade at Frank at all for people that got their pants in a bunch.” He added that he was clarifying for “people who just live in the box and for Enes Kanter who’s always got something to say. He says, I don’t know what’s wrong with him.

The Knicks didn’t appear to forgive LeBron for his comments because both Frank Ntilikina And Enes Kanter went at LeBron’s neck during tonight’s game.

LeBron better shut his trap they next time he comes to New York because his buddy Melo isn’t coming through that door to protext him.
