Warriors' Draymond Green, amid championship parade, mocks LeBron and the Cavaliers

Warriors' Draymond Green, amid championship parade, mocks LeBron and the Cavaliers

LeBron James is firing back after Draymond Green brought up his name during the Golden State Warriors victory parade on Thursday. LeBron makes reference to the Houston Rockets in the mid 90s, when Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler teamed up, and also the Los Angeles Lakers of the early 2000s.

But today's Quicken Loans Arena-themed T-shirt "burn" is probably in response to LeBron James' "Ultimate Warrior" tee from a year ago, which he wore after the Cavs won the NBA Championship.

It didn't take long for folks on Twitter to notice the similarities. They just can't. So barring any injuries, the Warriors will end up right back in the finals next year and likely face the Cavs again for the fourth straight year.

"And I wrote this previous year and said it and believed it: The minute he won that championship in Cleveland he was liberated to leave again".

"Everyone wanna talk about 'superteam this, ' 'superteam that, ' 'I never played in a superteam, ' you started the superteams, bro!", Green said during his turn at the podium.

However, at a rally after the parade, Green continued to mock James' contention that he had never played for a super team.

"I'm petty. I've been waiting for a while coming up with ideas".




The Heat went to the NBA Finals in each of James' four seasons in Miami, but won only two championships before James returned home to Cleveland in 2014.

The 2017 NBA Finals are over, but the (joking) war of words between Draymond Green and LeBron James shows no signs of letting up.

We asked James to talk about why he chose to wear the shirt, and whether or not he really was trolling the Warriors.

"Draymond is not a bad guy", Jefferson said.

James also talked about the great Michael Jordan's retirement in 1996 that led to some National Basketball Association players joining other teams to form, well, super teams. On the podcast, James said, "No, of course not".

Jefferson then began to remark, "The one thing I will say ..." but Frye interjected with, "Is that he's ugly?" It's just, 'Strive for greatness.' My motivation don't change.
