"The Knicks passed on a really good one", James added, "and Dallas got the diamond in the rough". "Why Knicks? It was kind of surprising, but I can not let anyone disrespect my organization or my family or my brothers like that". "I said, just pass it somewhere".

Porzingis told Adam Zagoria of SNY that Ntilikina is doing a "great job" in NY and the team loves him for it. I would not change Frank for anybody. "He's playing great, and he's doing what he's supposed to".
It's unlikely that James was attempting to insult Ntilikina in any manner whatsoever. But LeBron James, all-time great/part-time unofficial National Basketball Association analyst, didn't think the rookie point guard should have been at the MSG Training Center.
