LeBron James Says He’s Cool With Super Teams, Warriors Stacking Talent (Video)
How does LeBron James feel about the 73-win Golden State Warriors going out and getting Kevin Durant in the offseason? Apparently, he’s perfectly fine with it.
And why shouldn’t he be? After all, this is the same guy that joined forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami several years ago.
But just for the record, when asked about super teams and the Warriors’ prolific roster right now, here’s what James had to say (via ESPN):
“Is it fair? I don’t care,” James said Thursday, the day after the Cleveland Cavaliers fell behind 3-0 in the Finals to Durant and the Warriors. “I mean, I think it’s great. It’s great for our league. Right now, look at our TV ratings, look at the money our league is pouring in. I mean, guys are loving the game, our fans love the game.
“I mean, who am I to say if it’s fair or not? No matter who I’m going against, if I’m going against four Hall of Famers, like I said before the series started with Draymond (Green), Klay (Thompson), Steph (Curry), and K.D., or if I’m going against two or whatever the case may be, I’m always excited to play the game.
“And I’m not one to judge and say if it’s fair or not if guys are adding players to their team. So that’s what you want to do. Is it fair that the New York Yankees in the ’90s was adding piece after piece after piece after piece? I mean, if you have the opportunity to do that — is it fair that the (Dallas) Cowboys added Deion Sanders? I mean, listen. It happens. It’s sports. You have an opportunity to sign one of the best players, and you can do it, go ahead and do it. Why not? If I become an owner, I’m going to try to sign everybody.“
And here’s a clip of LeBron’s statement from Thursday’s press conference:

My guess is LeBron is simply choosing his words wisely, knowing he’ll be doing the same thing in Los Angeles in 2018.
