LeBron James Appoints Himself King of New York, Gets Roasted by Twitter

“King of New York sh*t.”

By //Sports

On Tuesday morning, NBA superstar LeBron James posted a photo of himself standing on the Knicks logo with a caption that read, “You’re welcome… (Crown emoji) of New York.” Though it may have just be a troll, the implication was obvious — James beat the Knicks a night earlier and now he rules the Garden.

However troll or not troll, James’s comment managed to peeve off many fans, and those who believe Kristaps Porzingis is already the true King of New York. Check out the roasts below.
