LeBron James on Dennis Smith Jr. ‘The Knicks passed on a really good one

I know what Dennis Smith is capable of doing and I knew the Knicks had been looking for a point guard.

LeBron James has been a kind of mentor to Dallas Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr.

"The Knicks passed on a really good one", James said. "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", James said. James told reporters Monday his comment that Dennis Smith "should be a Knick" was a jab at the former Knicks president and not indicative of his thoughts on Ntilikina.

"I wasn't throwing shade at Frank at all, for people that got their trousers in bunches and things of that nature here in NY, that look for any controversy here", James said before the Cavaliers held a shootaround at the Garden. Come on. That's a rookie.

Knicks center Enes Kanter took exception to LBJ's comments and took to Twitter to defend the team's decision to draft Ntilikina. We're competitors and we try to get all the wins we can get.

I wasn't throwing shade at Frank at all. "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 team has been investigating possible trades, but there is a possibility that the team will have to waive a player.

The 22-year-old Knicks unicorn has taken to find out other ways to further his development even in the minute details.

Recently, LeBron was caught hailing the rookie guard, calling him "a diamond in the ruff".

"But I'm a fan of the game, as well, and it's great when the Knicks and the Celtics and the Lakers are great in our league all at the same time". He was back with Westchester again Sunday. I thought that he would be a great fit here with [Kristaps] Porzingis. Can shoot the ball, can penetrate, is only going to get better and better with the opportunity that he's given here to play.
