Griffin has been with the Cavs since 2010 and became the GM in 2014.
Surround them with at least two shooters some combination of Klay Thompson, Ian Clark, Matt Barnes and/or Green gives them all the spacing they need in the half court ‘ and it puts the defense in an incredibly delicate position.
Even so, the Cavaliers need to have a plan when it comes to how they’re going to try to contain it because it’s something the Warriors can go to when they desperately need a basket. It certainly would’ve helped them down the stretch of Game 7 in the 2016 NBA Finals, and it could help them if they find themselves in a similar situation in the 2017 NBA Finals.
Griffin has been with the Cavs since 2010 and became the GM in 2014. He was part of a Cavs front office that drafted Kyrie Irving in 2011 and lured LeBron James back from Miami in 2014 while adding All-Star forward Kevin Love the same year. The Cavaliers are coming off three straight trips to the NBA Finals, including the franchise’s only championship last year.
After losing in five games to the Warriors’ so-called super team, the Cavaliers want to figure out how to beat Golden State to claim another NBA title. Griffin’s departure does not seem to be a decision influenced by James, who had been on record speaking in support of Griffin to be given a contract extension.
If no one appreciated you Griff I did, and hopefully all the people of Cleveland! Thanks for what u did for the team for 3 yrs! We got us 1??
