LeBron James is one of the greatest National Basketball Association players of all time, but his 15-year career lacks something that may seem relatively simple: Play every regular-season game.

It's hard to see it now since the Knicks seem to be perennially and perpetually in transition.

Ahead of the rematch between the Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, April 9, however, James had nothing but praise for the rookie. I think his energy is good defensively.

"LeBron has led this charge", Lue said.

James, who recorded 26 points and 11 assists in Monday's game, tells ESPN Ian Begley that he's known about Ntilikina for quite a while, as his close friend, Romeo Travis, played with the Belgian ball-handler overseas. He's averaging 5.8 points and 3.2 assists in 77 games. I think they got the message.

"Playing 81 out of 81 games and very easy for a guy to sit down when you are going through stuff he went through all season". James previously stated that the Knicks made a mistake by not drafting Dennis Smith Jr., which was immediately followed by an in-game attempt to bully Ntilikina. I feel like I'm doing better. I think defensively he does more things than offensively, but he's getting better offensively as he gets more opportunity and plays more games. I'm more comfortable. I couldn't have done that without the confidence that my teammates gave me. "I get the whole chronicle of [LeBron's] life".

Indiana's best bet to hope to slow down LeBron will be to use their more athletic and longer perimeter defenders like Thaddeus Young, Glenn Robinson III and Lance Stephenson. "To be able to be in a position where you kind of control a division, that's a pretty unique thing to me". James is looking to spark some of the same magic in 2018 as his team, who have battle tested all season long, prepare to enter the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Never fully healthy, Thomas was unable to play until December, and was on a minutes restriction for his two-month stay in Cleveland before being dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first of three moves that reshaped the roster at the NBA Trade Deadline on February 8. As a kid I didn't know I would be here.

"I knew there was going to be something, but I didn't envision that", Riley said.
