Jeff Hornacek is glad Frank Ntilikina pushed back — literally — against LeBron James. And the Knicks coach is delighted the James-Ntilikina-Enes Kanter kerfuffle occurred, believing it bonded the team despite a loss Monday to the Cavaliers. “I thought it was great,’’ he said on the newest edition of “The Jeff Hornacek Experience” that debuts Friday night on MSG Networks after the Knicks face the Raptors. “When we played back in the day, there was a lot of that. So you don’t see as much now in today’s game. But, you know, whether the comments from LeBron were aimed at Frank or the Knicks or Phil [Jackson] or whatever it was, I was happy that Frank gave him a little shove and then when LeBron stood in front of him and Enes jumped in there. That’s kind of the chemistry that gets developed when guys are playing for each other. You saw Enes jump right in the middle of this and said, ‘Nah you’re not gonna do this to my young guy.’ So that’s a great sign to see the togetherness of our guys.”
Enes Kanter: Revoke my passport haha 😂 Ain’t no one stopping me 😉 Not even you #DictatorErdogan 💯 Much love from Canada 🇨🇦 ❤️ @RT_Erdogan 😘
