LeBron James Fires Back At Draymond Green Over Parade Rant, Claims He ‘Didn’t Start The Super Team’
During yesterday’s Golden State Warriors parade, Draymond Green blasted LeBron James for claiming he’s never been on a super team by saying that not only has he been on one but that he’s also responsible for starting the whole super team trend in the NBA.
“Super team this, super team that. ‘I never played on a super team.’ You started the super team, bro! I ain’t joining a super team. Hey Slim (Kevin Durant), I don’t know what you just did, but you did something to those boys. We appreciate you joining the super team. ‘I never played on a super team.’ That’s crazy.
“Slim was the second pick in the draft, Steph was 7th, Klay was 11th, I was like 47. We’re no No. 1, No. 1, No. 4, No. 5, we just do it better. Give credit where credit due. We ain’t have no No. 1 picks to build this thing. We just put it together, so shoutout to Bob (Myers). Bob is definitely the best GM in the league and he just sit back, don’t want to credit. Way to get it done, bro.”
LeBron then went on Richard Jefferson’s podcast to defend himself against Draymond’s tirade by proclaiming that he “definitely didn’t start the super team”.

“No, no,” James says. “In 2003, the Lakers combined Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq and Kobe. In ’96, when [Michael] Jordan was retired, the Rockets joined Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler, all on the same team. I definitely didn’t start the superteam, if that’s what he is trying to say, but it’s just great that the day you’re celebrating your championship, my likeness and my name is in your head. I love that.”
Frye echoed James’ point in adding: “This could be the greatest day of your life and you’re talking about us.”
LeBron needs to learn to take a L and stop responding to everything Draymond does says.
