LeBron James says Golden State is more stacked than Cavs
The Golden State Warriors have now moved just a game away from earning their second NBA title and third in the last four years all over the Cleveland Cavaliers after grabbing a commanding 3-0 series lead in Game 3. It has pushed the Cavaliers in a tough position of having to win out for the rest of the NBA Finals in order to hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy, something no one has ever done trailing 3-0.
During his media availability on Thursday, star forward LeBron James made a brutally honest assessment of his team in comparison to the Warriors’ stacked roster by stating that his team had the inferior overall group.
“If you look at Golden State’s top five players to our top five players, they are stacked better than us. I mean, let’s just speak the truth. Kevin Durant. You got two guys with MVPs on their team and you got a guy in Klay [Thompson] that could easily be on a team and carry a team, score 40 in a quarter before. Then you got Draymond [Green] who is arguably one of the best defenders.
This isn’t any ground-breaking analysis as it is widely known that the Warriors possess the more talent roster at the top with their group of four legitimate All-Stars. Golden State is led by two former league MVPs, who could each be the driving offensive force for practically any NBA team in the league. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson is not only one of the best shooters but also regarded as being one of the best two-way players in the entire league.
On top of that, Draymond Green has asserted himself as one of the top all-around talents that have been the glue piece to the Warriors’ sustained success over the last four years. James isn’t putting his team down by any means, but it simply shows that Golden State has a stacked team that has even gotten past the game’s best players despite him putting together a historic playoff run.
This has put the Warriors in the position to secure another NBA title while further cementing their status as the league’s best team and a legitimate dynasty.
