SNL roasts Cavaliers

When he was in Cleveland he was just playing basketball.

Former Cavs general manager David Griffin recalls overhearing LeBron coaching the Raps during a game last season on how to properly execute one of theirs sets.

However, they were dominated by the Warriors in the finals the following year before Irving surprisingly asked to be traded as he preferred to be the focal point of a team.

"I think the fit of LeBron and Kyrie was hard because Kyrie was so good offensively, had been carrying the load offensively for a bad team, hadn't been raised to understand how to lead and help you win necessarily, hadn't been given that opportunity yet, and just when we're gonna be good LeBron shows up, and it's his team", Griffin said.

LeBron James has had the Toronto Raptors' number for years.

He'd been doing it on a bad team, he wanted a chance to do it on a good team.

"It's just trying to save pockets of energy throughout, especially the second half, when I know it's going to be a possession game", James said. "And to be fluid and adjust and still be that talented and that good, and hats off to not just LeBron but the people I just named".

Now, he and the Cavs are gearing up to head to Boston to face off against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.
