Enes Kanter had some words and phrases for LeBron James after the two got into a mini scuffle through the Knicks’ 104-101 reduction to the Cavaliers on Monday.

“I’ll tell you a very important factor, this team is absolutely special. And you ain’t arriving at my house, playing that water bottle flip game once again. I don’t care who you are, everything you call yourself, King, Queen, Princess, whatever you are. You know what, we’re going to fight. Ain’t nobody out there gonna punk us. So we’re simply gonna go out there, take up our video game, and we’re simply gonna progress and better each day.”
To Kanter’s remarks, LeBron responded simply: “That’s corny.”

“That’s corny,” James said. “Well I’m the king, my partner may be the queen and my girl is the princess, thus we received all three covered.”
LeBron said earlier found in the week he felt the Knicks should have drafted Dennis Smith Jr., who fell to the Dallas Mavericks at pick No. 9 in the 2017 NBA Draft. The Knicks required Frank Ntilikina instead, and Ntilikina and James bumped the other person in the 1st half of Monday’s video game.
So nice, we’d to show it twice. That’s OUR rookie.

That resulted with Kanter stepping in and getting back in LeBron’s face.
The Knicks held a 23-point lead but eventually lost to the Cavaliers as LeBron and co. barraged NY from downtown in the 4th.
NY and Cleveland don’t take up the other person again until April but judging by the way this video game went, this could be a game both groups circle on the calendars.
