When LeBron James formed a superteam with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to challenge the superteam Boston Celtics, it began a new era for the NBA where stars are more willing to team up and form a dominant force in the name of winning.
Now, in his seventh straight NBA Finals, James is up against possibly the greatest team all-time. The Warriors lead James and the Cavaliers 3-0 and are on the cusp of their second title in three years. With James up against such a force he was asked if this was good, or fair, for the league.
"Is it fair? I don't care. I think it's great. It's great for our league. Look at our TV ratings. Look at the money our league is pouring in. Guys are loving the game. Our fans love the game."
It shouldn't be a surprise that James is pro superteam. He helped create one, after all, and has seen great success because of it. James also knows that these teams can be toppled. His Heat teams were beaten twice and he beat the Warriors as recently as last season.
James is also correct about the state of the league right now. The NBA is making more money than ever and the ratings continue to go soar. The NBA is in a great place right now and superteams have a been a large part of that. However, it will be interesting to see if his opinion changes in three to four years if Golden State is able to pull off the historic multi-title run many feel they are capable of.
