James, in podcast chat with teammate Richard Jefferson, points out that super teams have been around forever.
“In 2003, the Lakers combined Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq and Kobe. In 96, when Jordan was retired, the Rockets joined Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler all on the same team. But I don’t look at it as – I definitely didn’t start the super team, as that’s what he’s trying to say.
“But I just feel like, it’s great that on the day that you’re celebrating your championship, my likeness and my name is in your head. I love that.”
