Enes Kanter-LeBron James Rivalry Is Fantastic
LeBron James got ejected for the first time in an NBA game tonight. Amazingly, James had never received one until tonight. Only two active players – Tony Parker and Pau Gasol have longer streaks of not getting tossed from a game. Apparently, LeBron used some bad words to the head official of tonight’s Miami-Cleveland game leading to his ejection. New York Knicks center Enes Kanter made sure to let James know about it on Twitter, which continues our newest, best rivalry in the NBA. Of course, James tried to act like he isn’t impressed.

#Cavs LeBron James, Tyronn Lue & others were shown Enes Kanter's tweet in the locker room. LeBron shrugged & said he's always looking for attention.

I love the fact Kanter is not afraid of James at all. The best part of it is the Knicks center is a talented player and not like a DeShawn Stevenson-type where he’s talking shit for no real reason. This rivalry is getting good, and it’s a damn shame that we will not see Knicks-Cavs until April. That’s a travesty. We need to have more moments with Kanter-James, but that’s not going to happen unless Enes gets traded somewhere else. Or if the Knicks make the playoffs. (Hey, it could happen).
