LeBron James and Enes Kanter got into it before, during, after and now the day following the Cavaliers’ win over the Knicks.

LeBron did everything in New York – ride the subway, accidentally slight Frank Ntilikina, purposely badmouth Kanter and Phil Jackson, go toe-to-toe with Ntilikina and Kanter and hit the go-ahead shot over Kristaps Porzingis. So, LeBron implicitly called himself the King of New York:

“You’re welcome” – that’s so arrogant, and I loved it. LeBron needn’t be humble after all he’s done.

Of course, Kanter chimed in.

Ian Begley of ESPN:

Kanter is always so eager to ride for his star teammate (except the time Zaza Pachulia laid out Russell Westbrook and Kanter did nothing). But a war of words and social-media shots? Kanter is always down for that.

He has catching up to do, as the Cavaliers followed LeBron’s Arthur meme with a few of their own after beating New York.
