Did Le Bron James just throw more shade at Kyrie Irving
The King spoke Saturday night, saying the New York Knicks messed up by not drafted Dallas Mavericks guard Dennis Smith Jr. Jackson ruffled James previous year when he used the term "posse" referring to the superstar's friends and business circle. He's second amongst rookies in steals per game, fifth in assists, and ranks third in the National Basketball Association in deflections per 36 minutes behind just Paul George and Thaddeus Young.
The Knicks face the Cavaliers at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Madison Square Garden. "I wouldn't trade Frank for anybody".
"I don't care, it doesn't matter LeBron or whoever it is".
It's unlikely that James was attempting to insult Ntilikina in any manner whatsoever. But LeBron James, all-time great/part-time unofficial National Basketball Association analyst, didn't think the rookie point guard should have been at the MSG Training Center.
"Oh yeah, of course", Porzingis said Sunday after practice in Tarrytown. "So whatever is said, whatever people think, me and the team are just being focused on what we're doing every day to improve and just to make us better".
The 22-year-old Knicks unicorn has taken to find out other ways to further his development even in the minute details.
The 6-5 Ntilikina has flashed promise, averaging 4.4 points, 5.0 assists and 1.6 steals in 10 games as a reserve.
"I don't have to prove them, I have to prove to myself", he said. "Obviously he was at the helm of [the team featuring] my favorite player of all time [Michael Jordan], and also being there growing up and watching him with the Lakers, but I got nothing for him".
The Knicks' coach praised Ntilikina's "defense and his ability to see the floor". "He's not afraid of the big moment", Hornacek said of his young point guard. Can shoot the ball, can penetrate, is only going to get better and better with the opportunity that he's given here to play. "But we love what he does".
