Apparently Golden State Warriors Draymond Green didn’t appreciate this shirt that LeBron James chose to wear last year during the Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade.
So during the Warriors championship parade yesterday, the All-Star forward wore a shirt of his own (pictured above) in response to LeBron. Here is what Green had to say about why he chose to wear the shirt that he did.

And if that wasn't enough apparently Draymond heard these comments by LeBron during his post-game press conference following the NBA Finals loss.
And had his own response to them.

Look at everyone's reaction. Kevin Durant basically falling out of his seat. Steph Curry smiling. The fans all laughing. Even people on Twitter had to get in on the action.

How quickly we forget that the Boston Celtics of 2007-08 were the first real super team. https://t.co/7X7arJQ9oT

Between Dray's "superteam" zinger & Kerr's "ultimate warrior" joke, crazy to me how LeBron is so dominant they can't help but talk about him

Those with something to say about Draymond: did you have a problem when LeBron was wearing that Ultimate Warrior hat? Or the 3-1 cookies?

Bron can't see Dray when it comes to flaming. Dray built like a bean bag chair, he probably had to be able to flame his whole life.

This isn't really that close and it doesn't have the off-court issues and racial tension, but this Cavs/Warriors rivalry is starting to look like the modern day version of the Lakers/Celtics rivalry. It might actually be a Warriors/LeBron rivalry at this point, but either way we have ourselves a rivalry, and that is good for the sport of basketball.
