"'I've never played on a super team.' That's insane", said Green, who wore a t-shirt that read "Quickie" with the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy next to a large "Q" that resembled the logo for Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena.
In 2003, the Lakers combined Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq and Kobe. And in 1996, when (Michael) Jordan was retired, the Rockets joined Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Clyde Drexler all on the same team.
Green took the stage to vent his true feelings about the King saying he's never been a part of a super team. and D.G. explicitly defended his team and general manager Bob Myers in front of approximately 1 MILLION Warriors fans.
Of course, Green is referencing when James left Cleveland in 2010 and infamously "took his talents to South Beach", where he joined Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. After all, he had been seen earlier in the day on Instagram, too busy in the gym, dancing, working, and showing off his newly shaven head to spend time watching the Warriors celebrate the title.
"I've been telling you guys", James said.
In his interview with Gold-Onwude, Green conceded of James, "That's definitely my guy". It didn't bother me, but let's just be clear.
Draymond Green and LeBron James may be done competing on the court until next season, but their battle of trolling and social media supremacy is only beginning.
Green and James engaged in some playful trash talk on Instagram Thursday when James saw a picture of Green in the t-shirt at the parade.
"We actually got them made in Cleveland".
During his speech at the Warriors' championship parade, Green once again gave James a blow. As if the National Basketball Association is worse off because LeBron chose to play for the Heat, as opposed to some old, white guy choosing him to play for the Heat.
LeBron James hit Green with a "That's what she said". The Warriors also had a near-sweep finish when they won a 3-0 lead in the first 3 round in the finals before beating the Cavs in Game 5.
Jefferson then began to remark, "The one thing I will say ..." but Frye interjected with, "Is that he's ugly?" "It hasn't changed", James said. It's just, 'Strive for greatness.' My motivation don't change.
