The biggest NBA headline right now is the fact that Lebron James said he never played on a super team, of course to take a jab at the Golden State Warriors and to try and feel better about losing in the 2017 NBA Finals. I think even his fans think he's a bit out there with that statement, because what the heck was his days with the Miami Heat?
LeBron speaks on both ends of the a conversation all the time. He gave Kevin Durant credit for being great, but then he knocks him for going to the Warriors. To me, he sounds like a bitter loser.
He went to Miami to learn how to win, and he became a NBA Champion going back to back. However, what he thought he could do was sorely wrong. He went to Miami, created a big 3 and won 2 championships after going to 4 straight Finals.
He went to back to Cleveland to try to do the same thing. Obviously, it didn't work. Players aren't going to sit back and watch a player who's suppose to be the greatest player in the league create super teams and then wonder how to beat him. Heck no! What they will do is create their own super teams to make things even.
Obviously, LeBron can't win when things are evenly matched...
At the celebration parade yesterday Draymond did not take what LeBron said lightly, which should be expected. He pointed out all the draft places the players fell in, pointing out the super team LeBron played on had top 3 picks from the draft in their starting line up that created their big 3 in Miami which started everything.
On the other hand, the Warriors highest pick was a number 2 pick, followed by a 6 pick and then players getting drafted all the way down in the 40s. Draymond points out that they just do it better, and you surely can't argue with that.
I mean LeBron is looking for new players to bring to Cleveland to rebuild his super team, and it's rumored that he'll leave Cleveland again.
So, not only does LeBron start things he can't finish, he runs from it...
Petty is His Best Shot
Trolling after the NBA Finals has been the thing between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. As a result, it's clear they're rivals and that they just don't like each other.
That's all fine and good when you keep it strictly basketball...
The Warriors wore a championship shirt that said, "quickie," on it. Draymond explained his shirt to a reporter saying he got them out there quick. That's all basketball and not a lie, but the best retort LeBron could give was to be petty while taking it to social media posting, "That's what she said..." I guess that's what winners do when they don't win, they get petty.
Here's the thing...I have yet to see LeBron get the last laugh. If he stays in Cleveland this year, which is most likely and brings another super team together through trades and free agency, he has to win in the NBA Finals this coming season. If he doesn't and runs to another team the jokes on him will be even harder.
I enjoy smack talking, but come on man, keep it basketball related...
