Watch LeBron Play Some Hard November Defense

As you might have heard, LeBron got into it with Knicks players Enes Kanter and Frank Ntilikina this evening. There was some jawing between LeBron and Kanter but that’s as far as the altercation went, because, you know, no one in the NBA actually wants to throw hands.

Suffice it to say that things are pretty testy in The Garden… but that apparently isn’t enough to bring LeBron’s regular season defense out of slumber. Watch him and his teammates allow Ntilikina to stroll down the paint for an easy layup:

You’d assume LeBron would want to drop the block hammer on the rookie guard at the center of this drama, but nope.
