Draymond Green and Skip Bayless have always had different feelings about LeBron James. There was a time when the Warriors veteran forward had a fierce rivalry with the all-time leading scorer. It was the period from 2015 to 2018. Back then, the current Los Angeles Lakers superstar used to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Most importantly, the Cleveland side is LBJ’s hometown franchise. He led the home side to back-to-back four NBA Finals from 2015 to 2018. But he and the Cavs managed to win only once in 2016. 

On the other three occasions, it was the Golden State Warriors who dominated the league back then and won those finals against LBJ’s side. That was the time when Draymond Green had some heated moments with LeBron James. But gradually, things calmed down between James and Green. Later, the veteran forward became an avid fan of LBJ. Green even said a number of times that he believes LBJ is the GOAT. On the other hand, Skip Bayless, the Undisputed host, made his living talking trash about LeBron James. Lately, Draymond Green criticized Bayless for his unreal hate for James.

Recently, Draymond Green was the guest on Shaquille O’Neal’s podcast “The Big Podcast.” During the latest episode of that podcast, Green called out on Skip Bayless for “Spewing hate.” He said that the Undisputed host is the biggest hater outside the league (NBA). Moreover, Draymond Green criticized Skip’s show, saying, “It’s dying.” He even said that he was hoping to help Skip with a soundbite for his show. Most importantly, Green believes there is no reason for Skip Bayless to hate on LeBron James every single day. The Warriors forward says, “What has he done to deserve your hate every single day?”



 Clearly, very few NBA stars come close to the popularity of LeBron James. Now, he attracts a lot of criticism, and Bayless has been one of his worst critics over the years. He never leaves an opportunity to criticize the all-time leading scorer. Now, Green says that the Undisputed host sometimes gets too overboard with his takes on the kid from Akron, Ohio. Other than, Skip Bayless, Green also talked about one of his biggest rivals in recent times, Jusuf Nurkic. On The Big Podcast, Green called out on Nurkic for his poor playoff record and compared it to his own Warriors resume.

Draymond Green talks about the prospect of him teaming up with LeBron James in the NBA someday. Both these players are way off their prime days. Father Time is catching up with them slowly. Recently, in an interview with the Point Game podcast, the Golden State Warriors veteran forward said that it is tough but not exactly impossible. 


Albeit it does not seem like LeBron James will leave the Los Angeles Lakers any time soon, what if he does? Draymond Green said, “Unless the Lakers superstar comes to the Golden State, I don’t really see us teaming up in the future.” Nevertheless, Green says he would love to “Play with Bron one day.”
