When Kanter was initially asked about the tweet, he told reporters that he wanted to focus on the Lakers' game but acknowledge his respect for the former MVP.
"He got mad at me, obviously," Kanter told ESPN, referring to the remarks he made about James in the past. "I mess with him a lot, but obviously he's the best player in the league. I respect the guy a lot. But I think right now they are struggling or whatever. I don't even think he's thinking about the tweet."
Kanter was quick say that he liked the fact that his former team dropped 148 points on the Cavs.
