LeBron James on Dennis Smith Jr.: "He should be a Knick"

LeBron James on Dennis Smith Jr.:

That's going to make some headlines, but he should be a Knick.

James clarified those remarks on Monday, saying he didn't mean to "shade" Ntilikina but instead meant it as a shot at ex-Knicks team president Phil Jackson. He scored nine in the fourth quarter, but missed a layup with 30.7 seconds left that would've trimmed the Mavericks' deficit to two.

The Knicks, meanwhile, opted for French floor general Frank Ntilikina over Smith at No. 8 overall.

"He should be a Knick", James quickly added of Smith. Athleticism. He's very poised to be his age. He's only going to get better and better with the opportunities that he's given here to play. I've been knowing that.

Smith has been a bright spot on a struggling Mavericks team.

Angelo also said he snapped because James had come close to elbowing him several times and he had asked James to mind his space.

"Yeah, that's fine", James said, when reminded he was headed there next.
