Kanter ‘might ask for a trade’ if added to Team LeBron

Enes Kanter of the Knicks had some fun when asked if he was to be chosen as Kevin Love's replacement on Team LeBron for the All-Star Game.

The ongoing poking-the-bear act by Enes Kanter of the New York Knicks on LeBron James of the Cavaliers had another chapter added Tuesday night.

The Knicks center, averaging 14 points ad 10.1 rebounds in 25.5 minutes a game hits season, was asked about the possibility of being selected to replace the injured Kevin Love (broken left hand) on Team LeBron in the NBA All-Star Game.

The “I’m going to cheer for KP” reference was in regards to Knicks teammate Kristaps Porzingis, who was selected by James to be part of Team LeBron in the All-Star Game.

Kanter has jabbed at James several times this season via social media after a dustup between the two during a Cavaliers-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden back in November.

Always worth remember, the Cavaliers and Knicks will close their respective regular seasons with a pair of matchups, the first at The Garden and the season-ended at Quicken Loans Arena.
