LeBron James: Knicks Made Mistake Passing On Dennis Smith Jr

13 November 2017

They messed up by not drafting Dallas rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr.

LeBron James unleashed what could be considered one final shot at Phil Jackson, declaring that Dallas Mavericks rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr.

Smith, 19, was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

"The Knicks passed on a really good one, and Dallas got the diamond in the rough", he said. "He should be a Knick". "That's going to make some headlines, but he should be a Knick". He wound up with Dallas on draft night, chosen ninth overall after a one-and-done N.C. State run, one pick after Phil Jackson chose to import Ntilikina from France.

Special assistant and global scouting supervisor Gordon Blakeley was also forced to resign along with Coppolella on October 2. The official announcement is expected to come sometime during the MLB GM meetings, which begin on Monday.

"I mean, I don't know why he made those comments, but all I can say is we love Frank, we're happy with him", Porzingis said, per ESPN.

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

Knicks center Enes Kanter took exception to LBJ's comments and took to Twitter to defend the team's decision to draft Ntilikina.

"I don't care who, I just can not let anyone disrespect my family like that, because when I play for an organization, I see my teammates and that organization as like a family", Kanter told reporters on Sunday.

James, 32, has been upset with Jackson since the legendary coach categorized his group of friends and advisors as a "posse" last November.

Ironically enough, the Knicks will now battle James and the Cavaliers on Monday evening at 7:30 p.m.

Porzingis told Adam Zagoria of SNY that Ntilikina is doing a "great job" in NY and the team loves him for it. He's playing great and he's doing what he's supposed to. "That's a rookie. You can not just say anything like that about him". And I would not change Frank for anybody.

I can't say what's going to happen, but we're prepared to play 120 minutes if that's what it takes. The players are ready to go one more time.

"I think in life people can think whatever they want", Ntilikina said of James' comments.
