On the latest National Basketball Association news, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green made some comments about LeBron James’ move to the Los Angeles Lakers. But, overall, he insisted that his team is not worried.

In an interview published by The Undefeated this week, Green was asked about his insights on James’ move to the Western Conference. The 6-foot-7 forward said, “That is great. He was able to make a decision he wanted to make regardless of whatever anyone thought. To see someone make that kind of decision is always exciting to see.”

James’ move to the Lakers is easily one of the groundbreaking developments that the 2018 NBA free agency had last month. A lot of factors likely influenced James’ decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers but many fans believe on top of it all is the thirst to win another NBA championship.

Meanwhile, LeBron James proved that he can singlehandedly bring an entire team all the way to the NBA Finals. And some fans think that this could pose a threat to the Warriors’ run for a three-peat NBA championship. If the Lakers find the right formula with James at the center of it, they can be a serious obstacle for Green and the rest of the Warriors in even winning the Western Conference finals.

However, Draymond Green is not worried, and so isn't his team. In fact, Green maintained that other teams should be continuously worried about facing them.

“Teams worry about us. We don’t worry about nobody. We are the champs,” Green said. “Why do we have to worry about anybody? They have to worry about us. They say we are ruining the league. I love it!”

During the 2018 NBA free agency, the Warriors also scored a major deal with four-time NBA All-Star DeMarcus Cousins. The former New Orleans star is a fitting complement to the group of on-court aggressive players (Green included, definitely) in his new organization.

The roster changes that have happened since the NBA free agency 2018 opened is highly interesting. Right now, teams are starting to huddle up for their respective camps as the NBA regular 2018-2019 season begins on Oct. 16, where Draymond Green’s team will be facing the Oklahoma City Thunder.
