LeBron James lends support to Draymond Green’s argument on NBA teams

Outspoken Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green went in Monday night on the double standard that he believes exists in the treatment of players versus teams, particularly as it relates to the trade process. 

LeBron James – arguably the most influential player in any team sport – was asked about Green’s comments Tuesday following the Los Angeles Lakers’ victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves

Knowing his words hold weight, James said he wanted to be “strategic” with how his words were conveyed, but he still had a decent bit to say.

“It’s the narrative of what the league has always been,” James began.

“From a team’s perspective they control the narrative. They’ve controlled the narrative of how players should be, how they should act, how they should treat their organization and if things don’t go their way they have a way of getting out the narrative that this person or that person is a bad fit or a cancer to the team or whatever the case may be. They’ve always controlled that narrative.” 

James said players don’t necessarily seek change, but they “want people to understand that it’s two sides to the coin. It’s not just one-sided.”
