    Unless Griffin fakes or lies really, really well, he still loves Lebron and still says a lot of people in Cleveland owe Lebron for their careers/paychecks.

    What I'm curious about is whether the Lakers had Griffin on their list of potential hires.

    BTW, Griffin not too long ago said that he expected AD to be traded to some place nobody expected. In other words not Boston or LA. It'd be cool if he makes his own prediction come true. LOL.

    • "Hey, please join us to be our President of BBall Operation."
    • "Great. OK. Let's Do this."
      ...first day at work
    • "Wait, how come my door says 'Executive Vice President'"
    • "Oh, no worries. That's just the way we do it in the South."
    • "Hey, how come there is a President name plate in my trashcan."

    Naw. NO isn’t sending him there. They won’t let Team Klutch win. It’s still uber- prideful football guys calling the shots. Plus they know LA won’t have cap to sign him next year (they won’t punt on using that space twice)

    Fantastic hire. Langdon was rumoured to be for a long time as one the of best assistant gm. Seeing the people he has worked with and learned from I have high expectations.

    Plot twist: AD demanding a trade was the best that could happen to NO.

    The new owner got serious about the NBA, they fired the second most idiot GM of the league, they hired a real POBO they even stole the Suns doctors. And then Silver gifted them Zion and they got 2 thousands new season ticket holders in a day.

    Meanwhile it destroyed the Lakers and Celtics lockeroom. lmao

    Its way too early but I dont think that the Pelicans are a bad franchise anymore.

    Report Details Struggles David Griffin Has Had Running Pelicans

    The way the New Orleans Pelicans handled Zion Williamson's return from meniscus surgery during his rookie season "caused significant tension between him and the team's medical staff," sources tell The Times Picayune.

    The relationship between Williamson and David Griffin had also begun to sour during his rookie season. Griffin tried hard to forge a bond but they communicate infrequently now. While the Pelicans were in the bubble, Griffin asked to meet with Williamson and played the piano for him.

    Some who spoke to The Times-Picayune for their story said they feel there is a discrepancy between what Griffin sold and what he has delivered.

    When “The Last Dance” documentary aired in April 2020, some staffers began referring to Griffin as “Griff Krause” in a group text in a reference to Jerry Krause.

    This offseason, the Pelicans undid many of the major moves Griffin made the previous offseason by firing Stan Van Gundy as well as trading Eric Bledsoe and Steven Adams.
