The Golden State Warriors added Kevin Durant to their roster last summer, just weeks after they had finished their 73-win season with a loss in the NBA Finals. It obviously paid off for both the Warriors and Durant since one year later, they are the NBA champions. The Warriors defeated the Cavaliers in this year's NBA Finals, and at their championship parade Draymond Green took a shot at LeBron James saying that he "started the Superteam". Green was reflecting on LeBron James' earlier comments about Warriors being a "superteam," and him (LeBron) not playing for a superteam in his career.

Considering that the Warriors have two former league MVP's and four All-stars in their roster, it's safe to say they are the definition of a "superteam." Just days after the 2016-2017 season ended and the Warriors won the title, LeBron appeared as a guest on the podcast called "Road Trippin" hosted by his teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye.

On this podcast, LeBron adressed his "superteam" comments and said that he's not the one who started this trend. James went on to say that the original "Big Three" were the 1995-1996 Houston Rockets, that had Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley and Hakeem Olajuwon on their squad.

Drexler responds

LeBron's comments about the 95-96 Rockets obviously stuck with Clyde Drexler, who recently responded to those statements. Drexler was in New York on Sunday for the beginning of the BIG3 League as he is the coach for one of the teams, and he took the opportunity to talk about the superteam concept. Drexler spoke to ESPN's Coley Harvey and he said that he "loves" LeBron and appreciates everything he says, but he has a different opinion when it comes to superteams.

Drexler said: "The Big Three was Kareem, Worthy and Magic, way before Bird, Parish, Maxwell and McHale and D.J. Those great teams always had four, five great players."

From one legend to another

Drexler has a point, since there were great players playing on the same team even before LeBron James, Kevin Durant and others did it.

Clyde "The Glide" Drexler is a Hall of Famer himself, as he spent 16 seasons in the NBA and averaged 20.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. He was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2004., and many consider him as one of the best guards to ever play the game. Therefore, his opinion is more than relevant and he finished his remarks on LeBron's comments by saying: "To LeBron, I appreciate the comment, but it went further back than Phi Slama Jama or the Houston Rockets."
