LeBron James tweets: I’m not mad at Cavaliers GM David Griffin
After tearing into the Cavaliers’ roster construction last night, LeBron James said he’d tweet even more thoughts.
LeBron delivered, softening the point everyone amplified (that he wants roster improvements) and emphasizing the point that got overlooked (that he’s on board with Cleveland general manager David Griffin):
I not mad or upset at management cause Griff and staff have done a great job, I just feel we still need to improve in order to repeat...— LeBron James (@KingJames) January 24, 2017
I’m guessing LeBron saw how his comments went over and wanted to quiet the storm he created. What he said sounds so much more resentful. These tweets read as much more constructive.
But the underlying point remains: LeBron is unsatisfied with the roster.
He won’t be a free agent until 2018, but remember, dissatisfaction with the Heat’s roster contributed to him bolting Miami.
