LeBron James: 'No Shade' Intended Towards Frank Ntilikina
14 November 2017, 12:57 | Pamela Mathis
Dennis Smith Jr. was picked by the Mavericks one spot after the Knicks selected Frank Ntilikina in the draft
However, James did admit that his words were meant to slam former Knicks president Phil Jackson, the man who drafted Ntilikina.
James' dislike of Jackson is well-known and well-documented, stemming from an interview in which the then-Knicks team president referred to James' business partners as his "posse". James and the Cavaliers play the Knicks on Monday night.
Smith played just a single season for the North Carolina State Wolfpack last season, going on to be named ACC Rookie of the Year.
James acknowledged Monday that he is "not a fan" of Jackson but said he has "no problem with the Knicks".
That said, Ntilikina now leads his squad in net rating, with the Knicks outscoring opponents by 6.2 points per 100 possessions when he's been on the floor. I don't have no problem with the Knicks organization. I've been knowing that. "Dallas is definitely, I know they're excited that he didn't go there", James said. "I've been knowing his talent level". Let's not. that's the past, though. "That's the past. He's not even here anymore".

Why would LeBron use his post-game comments to critique the Knicks' draft strategy?
"I don't care who, I just can not 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. I've been with him for so long now. I mean, come on. When the rider realized he was being filmed, he said, "Can you not?", pushing the camera away. I don't care who. I can not just let (James) disrespect (Ntilikina) like that.
James laughed off Kanter's rebuttal. "That's all it is for people who just live in a box and Enes Kanter, who always has something to say". "He says. I don't know what's wrong with him".
The Mavs rookie has been one of the lone bright spots for this struggling unit, averaging 14.2 points, 4.9 assists, and 3.6 rebounds per game. "And I knew the Knicks had been looking for a point guard". This is facts, right? "We have Frank, and Frank has done a great job for us, his abilities, the way he's grown from day one and the things that he's worked on, we expect him to be a great player also". But Deshaun Watson should've been our quarterback. "That's all that is, for clarification of people who just live in the box".
The Cavs are visiting the Big Apple for Monday's game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
