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."

Here's Bridges on receiving advice from O'Neal: "There's a lot fo links in his belt," said Bridges, who said he learned a significant amount from O'Neal: "He's won championships with the Lakers - that's what I dream about.... It's great to hear from someone who has been throughthe process and been through it at the highest level." Bridges is scheduled to work out for Cleveland next week, his final workout before the NBA Draft.

Mikal Bridges joined Shaquille O'Neal and draft prospects 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: "It means the world," Bridges said of speaking to the teens. "It shows it's bigger than us. I just tried to show the kids what we've been through, what can help you. They've never been through it, and to have someone who has been through an experience and can tell you about it, it can be helpful." Bridges has worked out for several teams, including the Knicks and Sixers. He's scheduled to work out for Cleveland next week.

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 was asked about LeBron James' free agency. He believes that if James' decision hinges on putting himself in the best position to win a title, it will be difficult for James to beat the Golden State Warriors. "Golden State turning themselves into a dynasty is making it hard for other teams to compete so he's either going to say, ‘I want to get four before (the Warriors) get four' and do a quick fix or Cleveland's going to have to do a lot of phone calls and lot of moves to get him the squad he wants," O'Neal said. "But it's going to be difficult. You have three superstars on one team that actually play the right way. Even with LeBron (on a roster), if you don't play the right way it doesn't matter."

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 was asked about LeBron James' pending free agency: "Somebody told me a long time ago, they said your book is already set (before the later stages of your career). You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set. So LeBron's book is already set," O'Neal said. "He done already passed up legends, he done already made his mark – he has three rings. His mentality now is probably is I want to get four before (Golden State Warriors guard) Steph (Curry) does. That's probably his mentality now. But if I was him I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter. It's just something else to talk about, something else to add to the pages. He's a legend, talked about as who is the best between he and Michael Jordan so he's set."
