New York Knicks forward Enes Kanter got himself up in the face of Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James during Monday’s night matchup, after James and Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina got tangled up earlier in the contest.
After the game, he did not hold back in his comments for James:

Kanter has been a member of the Knicks for roughly a month and he’s already throwing down the gauntlet, New York City style. During the offseason, he got into a barb with the president of Turkey, so it’s no surprise he’s not holding back when it comes to something like a basketball beef.
James responded with some comments of his own, which were directly tied into Kanter’s:
