David Griffin defends Kyrie Irving's Trade Request

LeBron James Los Angeles

If they fail to do that, the Cavaliers are still going to fulfill Irving's wish to be traded. According to Bleacher Report, the Cavs want to ensure they get someone like Kyrie in return, although they hope that could just work things out with Irving and retain him the camp.

Of course, DE is sort of small, but not if you're a polar bear and downtown Wilmington is headed your way.Bummer summerIt hasn't been a good off-season for Gilbert, what with effectively firing respected general manager David Griffin and the disclosure by LeBron James that his decision to return to the Cavs went against the wishes of both his mother and, surprisingly, his wife.For James to come back, Gilbert had to swallow his considerable pride and apologize for his enraged email after James' defection to Miami. The Cavaliers know LeBron James is still the best player in the world and if they get a player that can match the talent of Kyrie in the trade then they will be able to just keep pushing along with LeBron James leading the way. "I see this as him looking for a fit for himself, to take the next step in his career", Griffin said. And to a lesser extent you, David Blatt.Good luck, bad luck and a bad actorGilbert has also simply lucked out in many ways, gaining three No. 1 National Basketball Association draft lottery picks in Kyrie Irving, Anthony Bennett - hey, it was an terrible draft - and Andrew Wiggins, the player traded for Kevin Love.But bad luck has visited too. Irving reportedly went straight to Gilbert to tell him that he thinks he would be happier somewhere else.

"I think this is a guy who wants to know how good he can be", he added. "LeBron casts a very large shadow over an organization", Griffin stated. "The absolute worst thing this guy could've done is pretend to be all in and sink the ship from within". And most of it is really, really positive. "Most guys don't have the courage to do what he did".

"You can be sure Dan wants to win the press conference with whatever trade he makes".

While hindsight is 20/20 and Griffin most likely would not have appreciated Irving's request had he still been in power with the Cavs, it was interesting to hear another layer of what has been a very complicated and drawn-out process in "The Land". "You see when LeBron doesn't play, you don't carry the team". The teams on his list - Gordon Hayward in Boston and Kawhi Leonard in San Antonio - he would be accompanying other great players.
