LeBron James Says He Didn't Start Superteams in Response to Draymond Green
The 2017 NBA Finals may be over, but that's not stopping the feud between Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green from continuing.
During an appearance on the Road Trippin podcast hosted by Cavs teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, James denied Green's claims that he's responsible for starting the NBA's superteam era, via ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin:
"No. I mean in 2003, the Lakers combined Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq and Kobe. In '96, when Jordan was retired, the Rockets joined Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler all on the same team.
But I don't look at it as ... I definitely didn't start the superteam, if that's what he's trying to say. But I just feel like that it's great that on the day you're celebrating your championship, my likeness and my name is in your head. I love that."
