LeBron James has had many rivalries throughout the years. Some big and some small, most notably with the Boston Celtics and at the other end of the spectrum lesser beefs highlighted by the likes of DeShawn Stevenson. One battle that LeBron doesn’t consider a rivalry though is the one with the Golden State Warriors. Although admitting that the Warriors are the leagues best NBA team, he hesitates to call them his rivals.
How’s that for stoking the flames of what’s supposed to be the league’s best rivalry?
“We don’t look at it as a rival,” James said. “They’re a great team. They’ve been the best team the last couple years, last three years.”
