EVEN as LeBron James faces the possibility of his Cleveland Cavaliers getting swept in the NBA Finals by a Golden State Warriors now being led by offseason recruit Kevin Durant, the 'King' said he feels no ill will against club executives forming super teams.
“Is it fair? I don't care. I think it's great,” James said on Thursday in Cleveland (Friday, Manila time) on the eve of Game Four.
Last season, James was able to power the Cavaliers past the Warriors then led by the 'Splash Brothers' Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Himself a former part of a super squad with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, James now faces a tough task against the new Warriors dynamic duo of MVPs in Durant and Curry.
But James only sees it as a challenge, not unfair competition.
“I think it’s just part of my calling to just go against teams that’s in the midst of a dynasty,” James said.
“No matter who I’m going against, if I’m going against four Hall of Famers … or if I’m going against two or whatever the case may be, I’m always decided to play the game, I’m not one to judge if it’s fair or not.”
James added he would do the same if in the future he gets to lead a team from the front office.
“You have an opportunity to sign one of the best players, and you can do it, go ahead and do it. Why not?” James said.
“If I become an owner, I'm gonna try to sign everybody.”
