LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers take NY subway ride following Monday shootaround

LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers take NY subway ride following Monday shootaround

Speaking to reporters at Madison Square Garden two days after he said NY goofed by not drafting Dennis Smith Jr., who plays for the Mavericks, James confirmed what many initially suspected: His comments were targeted at former Knicks president Phil Jackson, not Ntilikina.

"As long as I'm getting on the right [damn] train that's all I care about", James said.

"The Knicks passed on a really good one, and Dallas got the diamond in the rough", James said after his Cleveland Cavaliers beat Smith and the Mavericks on Saturday night. "And I talked about it with people who know the game".

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.

"Like I said, it's no shade at Frank".

Saudis Deny Forcing Lebanese Prime Minister To Resign, Blame Hizballah
Following the meeting, al-Sabhan said in a Twitter post, "Lebanon will never be the same after the resignation". Therefore, Nasrallah stressed , the decision to resign was a Saudi one imposed on the Lebanese prime minister.

James and the Cavaliers play Ntilikina, Porzingis and the Knicks on Monday night at Madison Square Garden, where the home crowd likely won't react kindly to James' comments.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made a decision to get the full New York City experience on Monday. We love what we got.

"It doesn't matter if it's LeBron or whoever it is, I can not just let him disrespect him like that".

Smith Jr.is averaging 14.8 points and 4.9 assists per game in 12 games - all starts - for the Mavericks (2-12). "The coaches, the GMs, the president, this organization knows what they're doing". I can not just let (James) disrespect (Ntilikina) like that. I see rivalry with all the teams in the league. He compared his comments to his thoughts that the Cleveland Browns should have drafted quarterback Deshaun Watson with the No. 1 pick, saying that doesn't mean Myles Garrett won't become a top defensive player. It's all about me and it's all about the team. I have to prove to the team.
