LeBron James reportedly 'shocked' by David Griffin's comments about Cavaliers

LeBron James Warns His Critics: Ether Coming Soon

"Everything we did was so inorganic and unsustainable and, frankly, not fun", Griffin told SI for a story published Thursday.

"Alright Alright. Enough is enough", James wrote on Twitter.

Griffin, who is now running the New Orleans Pelicans, touched on how hard the culture in Cleveland was largely due to the pressure of needing to bring James a championship.

David Griffin is reportedly backtracking after wondering aloud in an interview published Thursday if LeBron James was as committed to winning as he used to be.

Griffin is with the Pelicans now, which means he gets to build a roster around Zion Williamson.

"I didn't watch the league, and I didn't love the game anymore", Griffin said.

Saints, WR Thomas reach $100M deal
He has established club records for receptions in a season each of the past two years with 104 catches in 2017 and 125 last year. Thomas played in three seasons with the Buckeyes before being selected 47th overall by the Saints in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Griffin told Fischer he was "miserable" trying to construct championship rosters in Cleveland and it was "not fun".

The article also said Griffin, in his first offseason as Cavs GM in 2014, collapsed to the floor in tears after James announced his return, overcome by the pressure to transform a last-place team into a contender overnight. He said James changed after winning a title with his hometown Cavaliers in 2016.

During an appearance on "The Jump", McMenamin reported Griffin reached out to James' people to let them know there was some context missing from the story.

"The reason is LeBron is getting all the credit and none of the blame".

"The fact that there was so much scrutiny in everything that we did, when I was speaking about being uncomfortable and being miserable, it was my inability to deal with that media scrutiny", Griffin said. "Literally the moment we won the championship I knew I was going to leave".

"Many in the National Basketball Association now suggest James harbors two priorities: enduring to team with his eldest son, Bronny [LeBron James Jr.], and one day owning a franchise". The two have maintained a positive relationship since they both left the Cavaliers, making Griffin's comments even more peculiar.
