Scott: Cavs need 'All-Star caliber player' to keep LeBron (1:48)

A few days before his father was indicted by the Turkish government, Enes Kanter hosted the Enes Kanter Camp organized by NYC Basketball Kids and Playbook in New York City over the weekend. He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter talks about why he publicly challenged LeBron James to sign with the Knicks: "I will say this man: he is trying to be the best ever. If you win in New York, then people can say, ‘OK you're the goat. You're the best ever.'" Kanter said on Saturday. "There's no way he's going to win for whatever more years in Cleveland. (Michael) Jordan won three (titles with the Bulls after his first three-peat in Chicago) but I don't think it's going to happen in Cleveland. So I just think if he wins in a bigger city like New York, it would be amazing." Kanter would likely need to take a pay-cut to give the Knicks a chance to sign James, something he's aware of. The Knicks of course, have no chance to sign James this summer, though it's possible that they get a meeting with James because of his relationship with new coach David Fizdale and the front office's relationship with others close to James.

Shaquille O'Neal joined draft prospects Mikal Bridges, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Marvin Begley III to host a day of mentorship for teens in Brooklyn with The Y and provide apparel from JCPenney. O'Neal said the look on the teens' faces reminded him of how he felt when he saw Julius Erving and David Robinson as a child and teen. "I understand the look so I just try to give them the key ingredients to make," O'Neal said. "It's the same thing I did. It ain't no rocket science on how to get here. For me it was, listen to my mom and dad, work hard and believe. That's it…. I followed those three principles and they got me to this point thus far."
