Cavs GM is Upset at LeBron For Disrespecting His Position & Talking Bad About The Roster
The Cleveland Cavaliers are 30-13 and in 1st in the Eastern Conference, but you wouldn’t know it the way LeBron James has been fuming to the media in recent weeks about the state of the roster.
After the Cavs lost to the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, James said the Cavs’ roster was ”top heavy” and that he wasn’t sure the organization was fully committed to defending its title.
While LeBron is perceived to be the General manager of the team, the actual GM, David Griffin, is not happy with LeBron and his recent comments about the roster and the front office.
“Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said Wednesday that “we’ve talked to LeBron [James]” following the Cavaliers star’s recent comments about needing to add a playmaker to the roster.
A team source told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin that Cavs general manager David Griffin had a one-on-one meeting with James, separate from Lue addressing the team as a whole.
Griffin, a team source told ESPN, expressed his disappointment in James for the manner in which he shared his thoughts on the roster.
One team source told ESPN there was amazed disbelief that James could question the franchise’s commitment to a repeat championship, considering owner Dan Gilbert is on the hook for the largest payroll in league history at more than $127 million, plus luxury tax.”
