The Golden State Warriors have a roster that will strike fear into many NBA teams. Their starting five is arguably the greatest in history and many have dubbed them a 'superteam' before the players have even taken to the court together.

However, not everybody is jumping on the bandwagon, and former Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics man Jason Terry has his reservations over using the term when referring to the Dubs.

Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will join forces as they aim to reclaim the Larry O'Brien trophy from the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James, but Terry, who played for the Houston Rockets last season, believes they need to be judged on how they play together before being called a 'superteam.'

He said: "Every team back in the day had two or three superstars but you weren't calling them super teams. I think it's more about the way they play. For me, San Antonio is a super-team. They won five championships with [Tony] Parker, [Manu] Ginobili, and Duncan. But guys don't really look at that and say, 'That's a super-team.'

"Because they have super individuals doesn't make them a super-team. For me, it's more about the accomplishment and what they're able to accomplish. And are they going to accomplish it? It's yet to be seen, so I refuse to give them that label right now. But they do have two guys that have won the MVP, so they are starting to form a super-team as we speak but it's yet to be seen."
