Enes Kanter gets warning after trolling LeBron James again
After his latest trolling tweet directed at LeBron James, New York Knicks big man Enes Kanter admitted that one of his former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates told him that the Cleveland Cavaliers star was going to get his revenge on the floor soon.
One texted me just to say — I’m not going to say who — but he texted me, ‘You’re about to get 50 dropped on you, boy.’ Kanter said before Sunday’s matinee against the Los Angeles Lakers. I responded something back, but I’m not going to say what it is.
Kanter reaffirmed that he enjoys using Twitter and obviously liked the fact that his former team dropped 148 points on James and the Cavs, but he says once he hits the floor he doesn’t worry about what he might have said on social media.
On the court you got to be serious, Kanter said. Whenever we step on the court, I forget about everything. That or this or all the outside talking … but outside the court we got to have fun. This is all about having fun. Just putting a smile on people’s face. I think I’m doing it.
The Knicks play the Cavs again on April 9 at Madison Square Garden.
Players took to the court earlier this week in several MLK Day-themed sneakers honoring the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Nike’s top athletes continued to highlight the brand’s Equality tagline, with Kyrie Irving’s newest sneaker featuring the phrase repeated on the upper.
