We’re only one week into the NBA season and LeBron James has already gotten under the Golden State Warriors’ skin.
Over the weekend, LeBron trolled the Warriors with these hilarious decorations at his Halloween party.
The Warriors seemed pretty annoyed with LeBron’s actions while speaking to the media today.
Certain members of the Golden State Warriors didn’t take too kindly to the props LeBron James used at his annual Halloween Party over the weekend.
The part they took exception to was a skeleton James had stationed on a stage with “3-1 Lead” inscribed on the bass drum head, a clear shot at the Warriors squandering a 3-1 series lead in the 2016 NBA Finals.
“Last year in their arena, it stilled smelled like champagne. I don’t think they like that Steph [Curry] said that,” Warriors guard Shaun Livingston told ESPN. “… Guys see it and everybody feels their own way about it, but it just fuels everybody for the next time we play them.”
Draymond Green just flashed a massive smile when ESPN asked him about James’ skeleton prop.
“More power to them,” he said. “I already got enough fuel. I don’t need more. Enjoy.”
Klay Thompson, visibly irritated by the subject, sternly told ESPN, “Man, I don’t care about that.”
Curry was clearly trying to hold back his tongue before offering up, “I’m just going to keep it quiet.” He then proceeded to shake his head and giggled.
Kevin Durant even chimed in, although he wasn’t a member of the Warriors last season. However, he knows what it feels like to be up 3-1 only to lose the next three games. He stated he’s not about the back and forth shots.
“I’m a basketball player, bro. I’m a basketball player,” Durant told ESPN. “If you’ve got any disputes or any feuds or anything with anybody that plays the game, let’s just check it up. That really don’t mean s— to me, all the jokes.”
I hope LeBron keeps this up all season.
