"I don't believe I've played for a superteam."
LeBron James did everything in his power to keep the Cleveland Cavaliers in last night's Game 5, and the NBA Finals as a whole, but the Warriors just had too many weapons and too much depth for the Cavs to overcome.
LeBron, who averaged a triple double throughout the NBA Finals, was asked after the loss if he's still a fan of the concept of a "superteam," you know, like the one he formed in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
However, LeBron claims he has never even played for a superteam. He simply doesn't believe it.
"I don't believe I've played for a superteam," James told reporters, "I don't believe in that."
LeBron may not have been on a "superteam" the caliber of this year's Warriors squad, but to deny ever playing on one is laughable.
Check out the clip below as well as some of the reactions to his answer.

LeBron James just said he doesn't believe he has played for a "super team." That's why he predicted not 1-2-5-6-8 titles in Miami.— Aaron J. Fentress (@AaronJFentress) June 13, 2017
