Enes Kanter to LeBron James: ‘We already have a king’

LeBron James is seemingly feuding with everyone in New York after he threw shade in the direction of the Knicks and former president Phil Jackson for not selecting Dennis Smith Jr. in June’s NBA Draft.

For his part, James is not backing down from that sentiment. He even went as far to use a Cleveland Browns analogy.

James also took some time to throw even more shade at the Knicks after his Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off an epic comeback in Madison Square Garden on Monday night.


Well, Knicks center Enes Kanter wasn’t having any of it.

“We already have a king. It’s Kristaps Porzingis,” Kanter said, via ESPN’s Ian Begley.

This is just the continuation of a feud between Kanter and James. And it’s already pretty darn glorious, especially after the former had this to say to James on Monday.

At which point, James responded in kind.

Maybe the Knicks will find themselves in contention here soon. We need a good Eastern Conference rivalry. And in reality, one between Cleveland and New York would be tremendous.
