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.
