LeBron James thinks the New York Knicks made a mistake drafting Frank Ntilikina ahead of Dennis Smith Jr., but the Knicks players disagree.

“I mean, I don’t know why he made those comments, but all I can say is we love Frank, we’re happy with him,” Kristaps Porzingis said Sunday, per ESPN.com. “He’s doing a great job. He’s playing great, and he’s doing what he’s supposed to. And I would not change Frank for anybody. Simple.”

Smith is off to a strong start for the Dallas Mavericks, leading James to say he “should be a Knick.”

“The Knicks passed on a really good one, and Dallas got the diamond in the rough,” the Cleveland Cavaliers star said Saturday, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
