On Tuesday morning, NBA superstar LeBron James posted a photo of himself standing on the Knicks logo with a caption that read, “You’re welcome… (Crown emoji) of New York.” Though it may have just be a troll, the implication was obvious, James beat the Knicks a night earlier and now he rules the Garden.
However troll or not troll, James’s comment managed to peeve off many fans, and those who believe Kristaps Porzingis is already the true King of New York. Check out the roasts below.
Also be sure to check out our recent interview with LeBron James during his stop in Hong Kong and our HYPEBEAST Magazine feature, LeBron James: The New-Age Leader.

Don’t call yourself the King of New York, @KingJames! You’ve had every opportunity to come play ball here and won’t. Big shot last night but you’re no king of NY.

LeBron disrespected their rookie, disrespected their center, disrespected their front office, acted like their subway was a fun little joyride, clamped their best player in the clutch, drilled the gw 3 in their best player’s face, & now calls himself the King of New York. Lmao ? pic.twitter.com/HeSM2n9DLq

Lebron is immensely better than any player who’s ever played for the Knicks and he’s torched them many times. He’s the King of New York ??♂️ pic.twitter.com/mPaiCRbadE
