Knicks Starting Five: LeBron vs. Ntilikina?
13 November 2017, 07:18 | Sandy Nunez
Dennis Smith Jr. was picked by the Mavericks one spot after the Knicks selected Frank Ntilikina in the draft
But still, LeBron watched Smith fill up the box score during the Cavs' 111-104 win over Dallas and knows the Knicks dropped the ball on this one. "He should be a Knick". That's gonna make some headlines but he should be a Knick.
"It's definitely a shot at him, that's for sure", James said.
OK. So this is nice.
Smith surprisingly fell to the Mavs at number nine after NY elected to take Ntilikina with the eighth pick and James believes they made a big mistake with their selection. James fired back at Jackson and said he lost all respect for him.
Of course, that comment was seen as a dig at the Knicks and perhaps former team president Phil Jackson.
Kanter, who was traded to the Knicks for Carmelo Anthony in September, told reporters Sunday that "I don't care who, I just can not let anyone disrespect my family like that, because when I play for an organization, I see my teammates and that organization as like a family".
Instead, The King made it clear his comments were "definitely" a shot at Phil Jackson. I talked about it with people that know the game.
Recently, LeBron was caught hailing the rookie guard, calling him "a diamond in the ruff". I haven't seen much of him.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star clarified those remarks Monday, saying he was not "throwing shade at Frank at all, for people that got their trousers in bunches". Instead, he was likely aiming to praise Smith and disparage NY, due in large part to his history with Jackson. He says. I don't know what's wrong with him.
Asked whether he had anything to prove to the rest of the National Basketball Association, he added: "I don't have to prove to them, I have to prove to myself". I know what Dennis Smith is capable of doing and I knew the Knicks had been looking for a point guard. And what I saw from him, and him coming out, and watching the draft, and thought he'd be a great fit here with Porzingis.
"But I'm a fan of the game, as well, and it's great when the Knicks and the Celtics and the Lakers are great in our league all at the same time. All I can say is a lot of people think what they want and it must not affect us so we just have to stay focused on what we're doing to improve".
Kanter was part of a trade deal that brought Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder in September.
