LeBron Disrespects The Knicks Yet Again By Calling Himself The ‘King of New York’
Who knew the Cavaliers’ 13th game of the 2017-18 season could garner so much attention and drama…
Let’s get you up to speed on how this LeBron-Knicks beef started.
Following their win over the Dallas Mavericks over the weekend, LeBron James told the media that the Knicks screwed up by not drafting Dennis Smith Jr.
“The Knicks passed on a really good one, and Dallas got the diamond in the rough,” “He should be a Knick. That’s going to make some headlines, but he should be a Knick. Dallas is definitely, I know they’re excited that he didn’t go there.”
Then the two teams met on Monday night at The Garden and tempers stared to flare in the first half and it involved the guy they actually drafted, Frank Ntilikina, along with Enes Kanter.

After the Knicks blew a 23-point lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers and lost at home, Kanter threw even more shots at LeBron by referring to him as Queen and Princess James.
“I’ll tell you one thing, this team is really special. And you ain’t coming to my house, playing that water bottle flip game again. I don’t care who you are, what you call yourself, King, Queen, Princess, whatever you are. You know what, we’re going to fight. Ain’t nobody out there gonna punk us. So we’re just gonna go out there, play our game, and we’re just gonna get better and better every day.”

On Tuesday, LeBron got one last shot in and completely disrespected the New York Knicks as a staff, record label and as a motherf**king crew (Tupac reference) by taking to Instagram and calling himself the ‘King of New York.’
