Draymond Green pays LeBron James back for 2016 diss with 'Quickie' T-shirt

Draymond Green pays LeBron James back for 2016 diss with 'Quickie' T-shirt

James comments were in response to Draymond Green's needling during Golden State's championship parade on Thursday in Oakland, where the Warriors forward wore a t-shirt that poked fun at Cleveland's arena logo and the brevity of this year's National Basketball Association finals.

The "Road Trippin'" podcast, featuring the Cavaliers' Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, has been a frequent source of intriguing tidbits, but it may have saved the best for last.

During the Warriors' celebratory parade on Thursday, LeBron and Draymond feuded on Instagram, and Draymond made fun of LeBron's comments that he's never played on a superteam, saying "you started the superteam bro!" I ain't join a superteam.

The Golden State Warriors will resume their rivalry with the Cleveland Cavaliers when the new National Basketball Association season begins on October 20.

It was a reference to the Cavaliers' 2016 NBA Finals win against the Warriors, sandwiched in between two Warriors titles.

But I just feel like, it's great that on the day that you're celebrating your championship, my likeness and my name is in your head. "As KD (Durant) said before, (James) showed everyone it was possible to do that".

LeBron James gets compared to Michael Jordan more than any other player in history, which typically leads nowhere but endless, frustrating debates about which of the two superstars is the true G.O.A.T. of the National Basketball Association.

"They wanna talk about superteams this, superteam that".

"The other guy is such a great guy", Frye said on the podcast, purposely leaving Green's name out of it.

"Oh, yeah", James replied. Green averaged 11 points, 10.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game in the Finals.

"In all actuality, Draymond is not a bad guy".

James said on Friday he planned to be back in the gym to keep in shape for next season. "It makes you look 10 pounds lighter", Frye joked. "If that was the case, I would have grown an afro".

Frye mentioned the "gentleman banter, back and forth" between James and Green, to which James said, "Oh, for sure, it's all good". "The only way I would come back would be if these m--f--s figure this s-- out".
