Kristaps Porzingis Responds to LeBron’s Shot at New York
- Updated: November 14, 2017
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James continues to take shots at the city of New York and its basketball players as his Cavaliers came back in epic fashion on Monday night, as they rallied all the way back from a 23-point deficit to defeat the Knicks, 104-101.
James’ latest jab came via an Instagram post, as he claimed himself the king of New York.
Never one to hold his tongue, Knicks big man Enes Kanter replied to James’ comment with one of his own, claiming that the only king of New York is rising star Kristaps Porzingis.

If you listen carefully, you can hear Porzingis playing Drake’s “Back to Back,” with the lyrics undoubtedly referencing James’ comments about calling himself the king of New York.
