Here is how LeBron James responded to 'king, queen, princess' comment

New York Knicks rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina caused a minor scuffle between the Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers when he didn't take kindly to some physical play from LeBron James.

James had indirectly criticized Ntilkina earlier when he said the Knicks should have drafted another player. James responded to that as well, mentioning that Kanter is always one to start something.

When told of Kanter's comment, James replied: "I'm the King, my wife is the Queen and my daughter is the Princess". The Knicks took Ntilikina eighth. Ntilinkina shoved James, who then got into a verbal altercation with Kanter. "You know what, we're going to fight and nobody out there [is] going to punk us", Kanter said. Kanter and James stood face-to-face for a few moments and were assessed double technical fouls. "So we got all three covered". Less than a minute later, James delivered a step-back 27-foot 3-pointer to shift the lead to the Cavaliers and they never looked back in the 104-101 win.

James engineered the comeback with seven points and eight assists in the fourth quarter - many of which were to Kyle Korver (19 points in the fourth quarter).

Just another day on the NY subway.

"I wasn't even thinking about (Ntilikina) when I was talking about Dennis Smith", said James. James did the same toward Kanter before Monday's game.
