"They say numbers don't matter but when they discussin' the kings, they turn around and say Lebron ain't got six rings." In that line from the song "No Frauds,"Nicki Minaj references how LeBron James can't be mentioned as one of the greatest to ever play the game when his three NBA titles don't stack up to someone like Michael Jordan, who has six championship rings to his name.  

On the latest episode of his Dray Day podcast, Draymond Green chimes in on the beef between Nicki and Remy Ma, but what really seems to grind the Golden State Warriors star forward's gears is how Nicki is constantly bringing up LeBron in her raps. "Is Nicki Minaj gonna mention 'Bron in every song?" Green asks. "Every song she's released since June 2016, there's something about LeBron in it. I mean, damn, like, LeBron is great, but Jesus Christ, at some point it just becomes...too repetitive. Jesus Christ, you can’t mention 'Bron in every song you do."

A quick Google search will prove that Draymond may be on to something.

  • On "Don't Hurt Me," Nicki raps, "Even if you was Curry, bitch, there's still a LeBron But let's face it, I'm Curry, with rings like LeBron, added my rings up, that's Mike Jordan."
  • On "Do You Mind," she mentions James's block on Andre Iguodala in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals: "Every baller tryna score, check them shot clocks, but I hit 'em with them 'Bron-Iguodala blocks." 

This is not the first time Green has defended LeBron's honor. Just last month, the Warriors star took James's side in his dustup with Charles Barkley.
