LeBron James says he did not start National Basketball Association superteams

Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

In the episode released Friday (Saturday, Manila time), the Cavs trio discussed in length Green's words and shirt at the Golden State Warriors' championship parade and rally in Oakland on Thursday.

James appeared as a guest on the "Road Trippin'" podcast hosted by Cavs players Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye and sideline reporter Allie Clifton and addressed the latest round of trash talk between the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, which spilled onto social media Thursday with Green and James taking swipes at each other on Instagram.

LeBron James will take the attention, just not when it comes to Draymond Green's suddenly favorite "superteam" argument. Back in 2003, the Lakers went to acquire Karl Malone and Gary Payton to join the already formidable force of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal. And in "96, when Jordan was retired, the Rockets joined Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler all on the same team".

He added, "But I don't look at it as". But I just feel like that it's great that on the day that you're celebrating your championship, my likeness and my name is in your head. I ain't join a superteam.

It was a reference to the Cavaliers' 2016 NBA Finals win against the Warriors, sandwiched in between two Warriors titles. Hey Slim (Kevin Durant), I don't know what you just did Slim, but you did something to them boys. "I've been telling you guys", James said. "I don't believe we're a super team here".

The Warriors forward was asked whether he thought star-studded teams like his own - which boasts household player names that include Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson - were good for the National Basketball Association.

James was asked to respond to Green's assertion that it was James who started the super-team phenomenon when he left the Cavs in 2010 to join up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami where they won 4 conference titles and 2 National Basketball Association championships over 4 years.

The two-time champion Green also posted a photo of James in his Instagram handle after a few posts of the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy. It didn't bother me, but let's just be clear.

"It feels good, doesn't it?" said Jefferson, who has gone with the bald look practically his entire National Basketball Association career, while Frye joked that it made James look '10 pounds lighter'. "If that was the case, I would have grown an Afro".

Wojnarowski also said that a reunion with Dwyane Wade in Miami is possible as well, but it will depend on the shape of the team next summer.
