In response to LeBron James' recent remarks regarding the Warriors' 2022 NBA Finals triumph over the Boston Celtics, Draymond Green has voiced his perspective on his podcast, "The Draymond Green Show."

Green acknowledged James' observation about the Warriors' purportedly higher basketball IQ during the Finals but emphasized the team's readiness for the grand stage, highlighting their ability to thrive under pressure.

While agreeing with James' assessment to an extent, Green underscored the pivotal role of situational awareness and coaching adjustments made by the Warriors' staff throughout the series, attributing their success to a combination of player and coaching IQ.

The dialogue stems from the inaugural episode of the "Mind the Gap" podcast, where James and JJ Redick delved into the dynamics of the Warriors' victory over a formidable Celtics squad, emphasizing the significance of basketball IQ in clutch moments.

The Warriors' triumph marked a resurgence after two challenging seasons, defying skeptics following Kevin Durant's departure and reaffirming their championship pedigree with their fourth title in eight seasons, capped by a comeback from a 2-1 series deficit against the Celtics.
