David Griffin Was 'Miserable' During Tenure With Cavaliers
05 August, 2019, 00:43
When asked about his experience while working with LeBron James, David Griffinsaid the following in a story released by Sports Illustrated: "Everything we did was so inorganic and unsustainable and, frankly, not fun". He parted ways with the team about one year later. Griffin's comments were hurtful and James himself responded on Twitter to those allegations.
Griffin maintains his words were taken out of context.
Griffin told SI that he privately wept the night the Cavaliers won the title, saying he was so obsessed with winning that he "didn't love the game anymore".
Obviously, Tatum and LeBron have an interesting past as the Celtic dunked on James in the post-season during his rookie year, which led to a hilarious copypasta about LeBron getting "boomed on". Despite winning a title for the Cavaliers in 2016, Griffin said there was no future of the team with James in there. I get that, but the payoff is what sports is all about.
During an appearance on ESPN's "The Jump" on Friday, Griffin said the quotes were in reference to fears he had as a member of the Cavaliers front office after Cleveland won the 2016 National Basketball Association championship.
A source familiar with Griffin's thinking said the Pelicans exec's intention was to refer to the media machine surrounding James and simply acknowledge a byproduct of his enormous celebrity, rather than blame James for creating the atmosphere. "They don't like being part of that world".
Elsewhere in the interview, Griffin also stated that James had not been as committed to his craft since leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to the top of the National Basketball Association in 2016. Between shooting movies he's in the gym. So just being locked in.
