LeBron James Instagrams Photo With King Of New York Caption

  LeBron James Instagrams Photo With King Of New York Caption LeBron James posted a photo on Instagram on Tuesday morning with the caption "You're <g class="gr_ gr_14 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation multiReplace" data-gr-id="14" id="14">welcome..</g> [Crown Emoji] of NY #myfavoriteplayground #striveforgreatness."&nbsp;It appears to be a subtle shot at Knicks fans and big man Enes Kanter for the entertaining comeback where the Cavaliers outscored the Knicks 43–25 in the fourth quarter to down the Knicks 104–101 at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. The original photo was taken by Jesse D. Garrabrant.

It was a clear troll to the organization and especially Enes Kanter , who he had words and an altercation with during the game. Enes wasn’t one to take the jab lightly, so he responded later on in the day by telling LeBron the city already has a King , and his name is Kristaps Porzingis.

"We already have a king," Kanter said Tuesday, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. "It's Kristaps Porzingis."

James himself pointed out before Tuesday's game that Kanter likes to talk. During Cleveland's 104-101 win, the big man squared off briefly with LeBron, unafraid of repercussions.

"I don't care who you are," Kanter said Tuesday night. "What do you call yourself? King, Queen, Princess. Whatever you are. We're gonna fight."

King of New York. Kanter wouldn’t have it. “ We already have a king ,” he told reporters Tuesday. “It’s Kristaps Porzingis.” Most recently, after LeBron ’s Dennis Smith Jr. comments, Kanter responded (on Twitter, where else)

New York Knicks big man Enes Kanter responded to LeBron James' latest Instagram post in which the Cavs superstar called himself " King of New York". “ We already have a king ," said Kanter . "It’s Kristaps Porzingis.”

As far as any Gotham royalty bestowed on Porzingis goes, the 22-year-old has a ways to go before he can claim a throne previously held by the likes of Derek Jeter, Eli Manning, John Starks, or Mark Messier.
