Draymond Green in 2010: LeBron James ‘know he can’t lead a team to a championship’

Draymond Green, LeBron James

Draymond Green is one of the NBA’s most-colorful personalities.

The Warriors forward speaks his mind, but he has also has more of a filter now that he’s in the league.

When he was still playing for Michigan State, Green tweeted much more harshly – especially about LeBron James (hat tip: Imgur user iah725):


I’d say LeBron led the Heat to championships in 2012 and 2013, but critics like Green might claim LeBron had too much help from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. (As if Michael Jordan didn’t have Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman; Magic Johnson didn’t have Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy; Larry Bird didn’t have Kevin McHale and Robert Parish; etc.).

If LeBron leads the Cavaliers over Green’s Warriors this year, there’d be no doubt left.

Maybe LeBron teaches Green a lesson over the next couple weeks.

(Hopefully, Green has already learned a lesson about about the inappropriateness of using gay slurs like that.)
