Golden State Warriors stars, including Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and even Kevin Durant, are not amused by LeBron James' shots at them during his Halloween party.
James' annual costume party included a drum kit that featured the fake band name "3-1 lead," an obvious shot at the Warriors, who blew that lead in the NBA Finals against his Cleveland Cavaliers last season, and headstone cookies featuring Curry and Thompson's names.
Naturally, the Golden State Warriors were asked about the digs. Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson kept their responses fairly simple, via ESPN.
"I'm just going to keep it quiet."
Green, who earlier in the weekend told NBA.com he wants to 'annihilate' the Cavaliers this season:
"More power to them. I already got enough fuel. I don't need more. Enjoy."
"Man, I don't care about that."
Interestingly, the star who wasn't on the Warriors last season had the most to say. Kevin Durant:
"I wasn't here last year but I obviously know from being on the team, you don't want to see nothing like that. Me personally, it's just jokes because you still have to play. Just like I'm sure there were so many jokes that went on about Cleveland and LeBron over the years, and you still have to play on the court. So none of that s--- matters until you duke it out on the court.
"I understand why anybody would [be mad] and I understand what LeBron is coming from. If you won a championship for your city and you did it in historic fashion, it's something that you'll never forget. So, no hard feelings. I understand where both sides are coming from, I guess."
Durant was, of course, on the Oklahoma City Thunder, which also blew a 3-1 playoffs series lead... to his new team, the Warriors.
Petty? Maybe a bit. But many have complained about how friendly the NBA has become, especially compared to the 1980s and 1990s. This Cavs-Warriors rivalry is certainly anything but.
