Enes Kanter Responds To LeBron: ‘We Already Have A King’
This is definitely not the beef that we want, but it’s what we got.
Just 24 hours after erasing a 23-point deficit to walk out of Madison Square Garden victorious, LeBron James took to Instagram and anointed himself king of New York.
he was clearly trolling the Knicks and especially Enes Kanter, who he had words with during the game. Enes wasn’t one to take the jab lightly, so he responded later on in the day by telling LeBron that the city already has a King, and his name is Kristaps Porzingis.

Tuesday night after the 104-101 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kanter took the first shot at LeBron when he spoke on the altercation they had during the game that resulted in double technical fouls.
“I don’t care who you are,” Kanter said Tuesday night. “What do you call yourself? King, Queen, Princess. Whatever you are. We’re gonna fight.”
