The Cavaliers and Knicks were set for a normal November game at Madison Square Backyard on Monday night. But here is the NBA, LeBron James, and New York City we’re talking about. The day was anything but normal. Here is the extremely official and significant timeline of LeBron overtaking the city of NY rather than giving it back.
10:45 AM: LeBron clarifies that he is mad at Phil Jackson, not Frank Ntilikina. He likewise throws a jab at Enes Kanter.
LeBron James was clear on Monday morning for the reason that he was only trying to insult Phil Jackson when he made his comments about Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina on Saturday night time. He followed up by stating “It’s certainly a go at (Jackson).”
LeBron also had applying for grants Enes Kanter, who actually stood up for Frank Ntilikina after LeBron’s comments.

“And for Enes Kanter who generally got something to state … he says … I don’t know whats wrong with him.”
This will make a difference later in your day.

LeBron is actually left-handed but just shoots right-handed. I truly think he’s going right through a shooting side identity crisis. Anywway, here’s LeBron still leading to noise from NY before noon.
12:55PM – LeBron and the Cavs rode the Subway real estate from Madison Square Backyard and accidentally made a meme

LeBron posted a video tutorial of the Cavaliers riding the train back to the resort from shootaround but the man sitting down beside LeBron stole the express by being unsure of who LeBron was. Enter “Can You Not” Person who had no thought he was seated beside LeBron James and the entire Cavaliers staff on the train.
LeBron: “I don’t know who actually this dude is right here, he trippin'”
Random Man: “Can you not?”

The moral of the story here? The NBA is the foremost television show on this round Earth rather than make LeBron James mad.
