Enes Kanter Trolls LeBron James After First Career Ejection
- Updated: November 28, 2017
James had said that the Knicks should’ve drafted Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. over Ntilikina and here’s what he had to say afterward:
“I don’t care who, I just cannot 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,” Kanter told reporters on Sunday. “And it doesn’t matter if it’s LeBron or whoever it is, I cannot just let him disrespect him like that. The coaches, the GMs, the president, this organization knows what they’re doing. … I mean, come on. That’s a rookie. You cannot just say anything like that about him.
“I don’t care, it doesn’t matter LeBron or whoever it is. I don’t care who. I cannot let anyone disrespect my family like that.”
Shortly after, James responded by saying that Kanter “always has something to say” and brushed off the remarks.
However, after tonight’s 108-97 victory over the Miami Heat, Kanter came after James yet again, as the four-time MVP was ejected for the first time in his career in the third quarter of the matchup.

Kanter is of course referencing a post from James in which James dubbed himself the “King of New York,” after the Cavs had rallied back from a fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Knicks.
