LeBron James says he didn't start superteams

Draymond

Green showed up wearing a shirt that read "Quickie," an apparent jab at the Cleveland Cavaliers for the short-lived, five-game Finals with a reference to their home arena, Quicken Loans Arena.

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.

The Golden State Warriors held their NBA Finals victory parade Thursday, celebrating their second title in three years and the playoff run that sealed their reputation as one of the best teams ever.

Draymond Green had already dropped the mic at the Golden State Warriors' latest championship parade.

James was asked to respond to Green's assertion that it was James who started the super-team phenomenon when he left the Cavs in 2010 to join up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami where they won 4 conference titles and 2 National Basketball Association championships over 4 years.

"I've never played on a superteam", Green said in front of the fans. I ain't join a superteam.

LeBron James still doesn't think he started the NBA's superteam trend. Why?

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 a podcast released Friday, "The King" had the following to say on Green's comments.

Interestingly, James noticed Green's shirt and posted a hilarious response via Instagram.

However, as James, Richard Jefferson, and Channing Frye explained on the "Road Trippin'" podcast, the back-and-forth really is not indicative of how the parties feel about one another. When Sam Amick of USA Today asked Thompson about them in November, Thompson said, "Yeah, I don't get it cuz I'm not dead". "They wanna talk about superteams this superteam that".

Frye admitted he would have been able to trash talk more had he played more in the Finals. James posted a photo of Green from the parade on Instagram, and a caption straight out of "The Office". The events, the celebration of championships they had yet to win.
