LeBron James fires back at Draymond Green via podcast

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James at a press conference after game five of the 2017 NBA Finals.Speaking on the stage at Thursday’s parade celebrating the Warriors’ championship, Green pinned the start of the superteam trend on James. I’m petty. I’ve been waiting for a while, just coming up with ideas.As Green would later share as he walked toward the buses that would take the Warriors back to their nearby practice facility, he was stunned to hear James say that he had never taken the “super team” route. “You started the super team, bro!”Which it was no secret in the National Basketball Association world that LeBron wanted Wiggins out to bring in Kevin Love, which this decision alone, set LeBron up for failure in his upcoming Finals against the Golden State Warriors, and I’ll explain why below. It was very surprising, because like I said, he was the one who opened the door for that. The feud continued into Friday when James was a guest on the Road Trippin’ podcast with Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson. They brought the distinction of superteam on themselves because that’s exactly what they wanted to be. There had to be some trash talk as well.In 2012, LeBron James holds the championship trophy while playing for the Miami Heat.”It’s like, this is the greatest day you could have arguably in your life and you’re talking to us”, Frye later said.James averaged 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists during the NBA Finals loss to the Warriors.LeBron: “There’s only three people in this world that can score on me in the post: Shaquille O’Neal in his prime – who else was it?” James posted a photo of Green from the parade on Instagram, and a caption straight out of “The Office”. I definitely didn’t start the superteam, if that’s what he’s trying to say.Let’s recap what happened yesterday before we get into LeBron’s response this morning. They just can’t. So barring any injuries, the Warriors will end up right back in the finals next year and likely face the Cavs again for the fourth straight year.
