LeBron James says he never played for a 'super team.' Really?

Golden State fought off a charge from defending champions the Cavaliers on Monday to earn their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons with a 129-120 game-five victory.

After the Cavaliers had fallen to the Golden State Warriors on Monday, James was asked by a reporter in a press conference if he thought stacked teams, like the ones he'd been on, were good or bad for the National Basketball Association.

"NBA players have just larger personalities, compared to those in the other major sports and that plays well on social media, for better or for worse", he said. The Warriors won a league-record 14 consecutive games during this year's playoffs and went 16-1 overall in the postseason.

For the second time in three years, the Cavaliers fell short of their goal of an NBA Championship against the Warriors, but despite Golden State having a younger roster with players in their primes, small forward LeBron James knows Cleveland will continue shaping the roster with the goal of competing for a title.

"But as far as that team, they're going to be here for a while. The things that you said about my son, I really appreciate that, but I just think you were kind of harsh". Golden State swept their way through the playoffs on the way to their third consecutive Finals berth.

James is keen to make that team his Cavs, even if it means trading away a fellow star like Kyrie Irving, or more likely, Kevin Love. "Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s, and they don't show any signs of slowing down". The Warriors are also headed to San Francisco, where they broke ground this year on a new arena slated to open in 2019.

Durant responded to Green, saying he was ready.

There was debate all year about whether the Warriors and Cavaliers were good for the NBA, since it was essentially a foregone conclusion that these dominant teams would be square off in the NBA Finals. The reigning NBA Coach of the Year returned for Game 2 of the Finals following a six-week absence from the bench. How does he not compromise the squad needed to fight past rivals to reach the finals? "In the context of keeping the team together, if there are decisions that need to be made, we'll talk about it for sure". "That's the plan, so I just got to keep pushing forward".

James could opt out of his contract after next season, so he will want to see some progress. After the Game 5 loss in the 2017 NBA Finals, he stated that he was never a part of a super team.
