LeBron James claims he didn't invent the superteam

LeBron James claims he didn't invent the superteam

LeBron James and Draymond Green on Thursday got into a back-and-forth as captivating as anything during the National Basketball Association season.

It didn't take long for folks on Twitter to notice the similarities.

The team has a young roster including superstar players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant.

On Friday's podcast, James was asked about Green's comments, and he pointed out some star-studded collections of talent that came before him. "With the trophy. Quickie".

Green's comments on Thursday directly addressed James' response during a press conference Monday after his team fell to their NBA Finals challengers.

James' Instagram post has almost 1.2 million likes, including several from National Basketball Association superstars.

Earlier Thursday, James debuted a newly shaved head on Instagram which is (literally) a whole other story.

"Bald head nut", James wrote.

At Golden State's championship rally Thursday, Green went out of his way to troll James, wearing a shirt that mocked the Cavs in retribution for an "Ultimate Warrior" shirt his antagonist wore after last year's triumph by Cleveland.

Green and James, who are both sponsored by Nike, are good friends off the court, with Green calling James "family" during an interview yesterday. "I ain't joining a superteam".

Padres beat Brewers in another slugfest, 7-5 in 11 innings
Counsell said closer Corey Knebel and relievers Oliver Drake and Jared Hughes were not available because they needed a breather. In the 5th inning Erick Aybar singled to left-centerfield to bring in Cory Spangenberg and put the Padres on top 1-0.


Green also told reporters that James was the one who started the concept of a super team and he has no right to say that he has never joined and organized one.

The common denominator between those Lakers and Rockets teams and the modern-day Warriors is that all three franchises had a championship core in place when they added their heralded piece or pieces to try to earn another ring.

In the 1980s, the National Basketball Association was dominated by two teams: The Lakers, with historically great players Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, plus James Worthy, Jamaal Wilkes and Bob McAdoo; and the Celtics with Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish and Dennis Johnson.

His shirt said "Quickie" on it. "And all of that". So I was waiting on this moment. But definitely my guy.
