Gilbert Arenas Almost Perfectly Breaks Down Comparison Between LeBron’s Super Teams vs. Warriors in NSFW Rant

Gilbert Arenas at times goes off on the deep end. However, the former Washington Wizards player almost perfectly laid out comparison to LeBron James and his super teams versus the super team that has been created with the Golden State Warriors.

In an explanation on Instagram that contained NSFW words, Arenas broke down in his thoughts on if James ever played on a super team.

There were some good points by Arenas, especially breaking down the Warriors. He talked about how the Warriors already had three All-NBA players, including back-to-back MVP Steph Curry. He noted how Draymond Green, arguably the team’s fourth option, is still All-Defense and essentially led the Warriors in rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks over the course of three seasons. That’s not entirely true, however, you get the point.

He also noted how Klay Thompson had a bad year, yet still averaged 22 points per game. Thompson also scored 60 points in 29 minutes, a great feat in itself, but highlighted more considering it happened with two former MVPs, and five scoring titles on the team in Curry and Kevin Durant.

Arenas said James never played for a super team. He discredited Bosh being part of a Big Three, referencing Bosh did not make an all-NBA team since 2007. He also discredited the addition of Ray Allen for Miami’s second title with James’ Heat due to Allen being the age of 37.

And how James is not part of a super team in Cleveland?

Arenas said because Kevin Love “has not been a star” since joining the Cavaliers. While that’s an opinion, it’s hard disagree with the assessment. In 2016, Love averaged 8.5 points in the Finals against the Warriors. Love shot 38.8 percent from the field in this year’s Finals loss.

But a star player as part of the main core not making an All-NBA team does not disqualify the team from being super. However, at this point Love is not a Hall of Famer and it’s very debatable about Bosh being one. In comparison, as long as every one stays healthy, the Warriors’ quartet of Curry, Green, Durant, and Thompson are all destined for Springfield. Not sure that many Hall of Famers have played together in their prime in modern day NBA. Not even the Showtime Lakers had four Hall of Famers in their prime together. Not even the 1985-86 super team Celtics.

Nevertheless, there will be plenty to agree and disagree with Arenas’ assessment. But his presentation alone of near perfect facts and well stated opinions seemed very convincing.
