After LeBron James suggested that the Knicks screwed up in the draft and not selecting Dennis Smith Jr., emotions for Monday’s matchup between the Cavs and Knicks were extremely high. And it didn’t take long for tensions to boil over.
Frank Ntilikina probably didn’t appreciate LeBron’s comments or the stare he got from James after the Cavs star finished off an alley-oop. So he got on LeBron’s grill. And Enes Kanter wasn’t far behind, as he came rushing in to talk trash in King James’ face.
Speaking of The King, Enes Kanter couldn’t help but take one last swipe at Lebron and his nickname following the Knicks’ loss.
Wow. Enes Kanter not holding back on his comments on LeBron… (or Queen/Princess James, as Kanter calls him) pic.twitter.com/9ZeH8jVGBP

LeBron was told about the jab and he proceeded to give the perfect response, handing Kanter his second “L” of the night.
