LeBron James clarified his comments about how the New York Knicks made a mistake in drafting Frank Ntilikina instead of Dennis Smith Jr.

James said he wasn't being critical of Ntilikina and doesn't even know him. "Dallas is definitely, I know they're excited that he didn't go there", James said.

It didn't take much time at all for Knicks center Enes Kanter to jump to the defense of the player whom NY opted to select at No. 8 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft: Frank Ntilikina. Kristaps Porzingis told reporters, "I would not change Frank for anybody". The Cavaliers are in town on Monday, so LeBron's comments should give the Knicks plenty of bulletin-board material.

James said it was his first time riding the subway in NY. We're competitors and we try to get all the wins we can get.

"They're both great young players", Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said. "I can not let anyone disrespect my family like that". "And it doesn't matter if it's LeBron or whoever it is, I can not just let him disrespect him like that".

"To be honest with you, they got on and they completely squished me and he was really unaware of his space", Angelo said, adding, "It was first thing in the morning". I see rivalry with all the teams in the league.

Asked whether he had anything to prove to the rest of the National Basketball Association, he added: "I don't have to prove to them, I have to prove to myself". "I'm just focused about the team, focused about us and we are just 100 percent motivated every game day ... so it's not affecting us".

Smith has registered 14.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game, compared to Ntilikina's 4.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 5.0 assists, but considering the Knicks' 7-5 record versus the Mavs' 2-12 mark and Ntilikina's superior 104.5 defensive rating (compared to Smith's 113.8), their rookie campaigns are somewhat comparable so far. "I don't care what people say". I have to prove to the team.
