LeBron James was asked about his feelings on the recent trade of Clippers star Blake Griffin. Griffin was traded to the Detroit Pistons on Monday.
The Los Angeles Clippers drafted Blake Griffin #1 in 2009. Griffin has played all 9 years of his career in Los Angeles.
Following the trade, LeBron James offered his opinion on the situation. “When a player gets traded, it’s the team was doing what’s best for the franchise,” James said. “But when a player decides to leave, it’s, ‘He’s not loyal. He’s a snake. He’s not committed.’ It’s just, that’s the narrative of how it goes. So I’m definitely aware. I know that firsthand.,” said James when speaking about the 5X All Star.
