The Enes Kanter vs LeBron James Chronicles: Part Two

New, comments

Enes Kanter needs to win some sort of Twitter award.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at New York Knicks Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

This past Saturday, the Thunder exploded for 148 points at Quicken Loans Arena in a blowout win over the defending Eastern Conference champs. LeBron James was held to 18 points, and came up 7 points shy of reaching his 30,000 point milestone. Enes Kanter, former Thunder and Stache Bro forever, made sure to chime in on the matter with a textbook troll-job of James, as he’s continued to show support for his former squad.

This isn’t the first time Kanter has “interacted” with the four-time MVP. This past November, the two got up close in personal at Madison Square Garden.

According to an ESPN report, Kanter revealed a former teammate texted Kanter following his tweet saying, “You’re about to get 50 dropped on you, boy.” The former Thunder big man acknowledged that James wasn’t happy with him, but downplayed the situation by stating that he has a lot of respect for the Cavaliers’ star.

“On the court you got to be serious. Whenever we step on the court, I forget about everything. That or this or all the outside talking,” Kanter said. “This is all about having fun. Just putting a smile on people’s face. I think I’m doing it.”

He’s clearly having fun with it, whether the self-proclaimed King of New York likes it or not. For those wondering, the Knicks play the Cavaliers on April 9th.


Should Kanter continue trolling LeBron?
