Draymond Green's bold LeBron James comparison at 2023 NBA All-Star Game
Draymond makes bold LeBron comparison during All-Star Game originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Draymond Green made a bold -- yet somewhat truthful -- claim during the 2023 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.
As a sideline analyst for the game's TBS broadcast alongside TNT's "Inside the NBA" crew, Green pointed out how his own career accolades far outweighed everyone else's on the All-Star court -- except for a specific Los Angeles Lakers star.
"There's one guy on this court that's resume can stack up [to mine]," Green said during the game. "LeBron. Four of them [NBA championships]. Four of them things."
LeBron James won his fourth championship ring during the 2020 NBA Finals, when the Lakers beat the Miami Heat in the best-of-seven series. Green won his own fourth title this past June with the Warriors, who defeated the Boston Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals.
And, when looking at the stars on the floor during the All-Star Game, it's hard to disagree with Green -- if you only look at the rings. But even though none of this year's All-Stars have won as many NBA titles as Green or James, there still were some pretty impressive resumes on the roster.
From two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to All-NBA First Team selections like Luka Dončić, Jayson Tatum, Nikola Jokić and Kyrie Irving, there were plenty of players on the court Sunday who have achieved milestones Green never has.

But it is safe to say that rings are the most important accolade of all. Both Green and James are among the five active NBA players with the most championships, along with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala.
And in Green's eyes, it's clear where the rest of the NBA stacks up in comparison.
