LeBron James: Knicks Made Mistake Passing On Dennis Smith Jr


"But Dallas is definitely, I know they're excited that he didn't go there". Truth be told, James doesn't have much reason to care for the Knicks, as team president Phil Jackson alienated both James and his close friend, Carmelo Anthony, with controversial comments and actions.

"I don't care, it doesn't matter LeBron or whoever it is".

Baker was expected to be a regular part of the rotation, but after an ankle injury slowed him through the preseason he has appeared in just three games - averaging 16 minutes per game.

Ntilikina's teammates, though, didn't hold back in coming to the point guard's defense.

But the ZR1 isn't just about grunt, the Chevrolet engineers have tuned every element of the vehicle for maximum performance. And two rear wing styles are available, each tied directly to the car's chassis as in the Corvette C7.R racing vehicle .

James, after the Cavs beat the Dallas Mavericks, was asked about Mavs' rookie Dennis Smith Jr. - who happened to be selected one spot after the Knicks grabbed Frank Ntilikina.

While it's still far too early to criticize 2017 draft picks, Porzingis is happy with how the Knicks used their top selection this summer and isn't sure why James felt the need to comment. "I had nothing but respect for him as a coach for what he was able to do". I just think it's going to be a process. "I can not let anyone disrespect my family like that".

"The Knicks passed on a really good one, and Dallas got the diamond in the rough", James said.

True as that may be, the comments essentially made Ntilikina the collateral damage of a jab directed at Jackson and, perhaps, Steve Mills. We love what we got...

Witnesses told local media that one person was stabbed in the back and another knifed multiple times. Potts said two adult males were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"I don't know why he made those comments", said Porzingis, who is third in the National Basketball Association in scoring at 30.4 points per game. "I think Frank's doing an unbelievable job. He's playing great. I would not change Frank for anybody". "All I can say is we love Frank".

It's unlikely that James was attempting to insult Ntilikina in any manner whatsoever.

In a draft class headlined by point guards such as Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and De'Aaron Fox, Dennis Smith Jr. fell under the radar and eventually fell to No. 9 in the first round.

The two players are going to be linked for quite some time - possibly for the remainder of their respective careers - resulting in conversations like this one. That's what it's for, to enable these guys to go down and play a couple games, get their rhythm, still practicing with us.
