There’s no more basketball on, so we can’t really talk about what’s going on on the court since the Golden State Warriors pretty much dominated the league this season.
So, what’s the next best topic?
Draymond Green and LeBron James going back and forth on social media and in public with jabs and shots. From Draymond trolling the Cavs with his “Quickie” shirt (as a response to the Ultimate Warriors shirt that LeBron wore last year at the Championship Parade) and his continued shots in his parade speech as he talked about ‘Super Teams.’
Then, LeBron responded on Instagram. Then Draymond fired back on his own Instagram.
Now King James has answered Green’s parade speech about ‘Super Teams’ through the “Road Trippin'” podcast hosted by Cavs players Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, naming off past teams that could be considered ‘Super Teams’ and how he didn’t start the trend at all. More importantly, he takes a jab saying that at the Warriors championship celebration, all Draymond could think about was himself and had his name all in his mouth.
Just grab the popcorn, ladies and gentlemen. Because this offseason will be filled with trash talk from both side and we’re here for it until the season starts again.
“No. I mean in 2003, the Lakers combined Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq and Kobe. And 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.”
