Draymond Green and the Golden State Warriors are not worried about any other team ahead of the 2018/19 NBA season.

The Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in last season's NBA Finals to win their third championship in four years. They could now become the first team to complete a three-peat since the Los Angeles Lakers did it from 2000 to 2002.

However, one team looking to stop that from happening are the Lakers themselves as with the signing of LeBron James, the 16-time champions have instantly gone from a 35-47 team to a playoff contender.

Boasting a young core of players in addition to James, the Lakers have also added seasoned veterans to their roster as they look to win a first championship since 2010.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets will be looking for revenge after they were just one win away from defeating the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals last season as they blew a 3-2 lead. They have since added Carmelo Anthony to their ranks. As for the East, the Boston Celtics are the favorites to reach the NBA Finals with some even believing they have the roster to match up and defeat the Warriors.

However, the Warriors are still the favorites next season and that is why Green believes teams are still worried about the Bay Area side.

"Teams worry about us. We don’t worry about nobody," Green said on the topic of James, according to 247 Sports. "We are the champs. Why do we have to worry about anybody? They have to worry about us. They say we are ruining the league. I love it!"

The notion that the Warriors were ruining the league after the signing of Kevin Durant in 2016 was only further strengthened when Steve Kerr's side used their midlevel exception to sign the injured DeMarcus Cousins on a one-year deal.

It means once Cousins is fit, the Warriors could field a starting lineup solely consisting of All-Stars and Green believes the addition of the former New Orleans center could make the Warriors as close to unstoppable.

"We are excited as hell to have ‘Cuz’ here," Draymond added. "‘Cuz’ is a top-five talent in this league with something to prove. We can be as close to unstoppable as you can be."

Green did have some positive words for James though, as he commended his move from the Cavaliers to the Lakers, especially as the 33-year-old got to make the decision that he wanted.

"That is great. He was able to make a decision he wanted to make regardless of whatever anyone thought," Green explained. "To see someone make that kind of decision is always exciting to see."

The Warriors will kick off their 2018/19 season against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Oct. 16 at the Oracle Arena. They will notably face the Lakers on Christmas Day as well as on Martin Luther King Day.
