DAVID GRIFFIN

What was Griffin supposed to do when every other team didn't want to part with their assets for a rental?
He did fine given the circumstances

You know, you can’t really argue with results. I mean, it would have been nice to do it without making every nba fan hate Davis, but he got it done.

And I share the view that paul did this more for Lebron than davis. I mean, what was the rush?

(Answer - Lebron doesn’t have that many years left)

Certainly not going to blame Paul for this (he was just doing his job)... but owners of small market teams have to be pretty angry.

Basically it doesn't even matter if you draft well now... guys can just force their way off your team and torpedo any chance of you getting a good return for them.

This is honestly pretty terrible for the NBA as a whole... that being said Davis and Paul didn't do anything wrong or against the rules and I'm not sure what the league can do about it.

Rich Paul works for Lebron. Lebron wanted Davis. Paul delivered with shameless blackmail and ignoring existing contracts.


Are you the same type of person who believes rich people are greedy, don't do anything positive and take advantage of regular folks?Im thinking you are. Stop wasting energy on so much negativity.

lol What does it have to do with Rich Paul? He's essentially Lebron's secretary who takes the legal risks on his behalf in exchange for money.

I don't hate on him for making money, but I draw the line if someone thinks he deserves props.

Why do people keep repeating this when other people have explained how it's not true?

He's a scummy little street hustler who barely graduated high school elevated solely by the enthusiasm with which he delivers hickeys to LeBron's backside. How's that for true love?

Are you talking about Rich “mini-Suge Knight” Paul?

The "scummy little street hustler" reps the two biggest stars on one of the biggest franchises in the country.

Yep, basically what I was tryna say. He gets his dudes paid too. He gets so much hate, and people say he's only successful because of LeBron, but he's turning into a force to be reckoned with. He gets things done for his guys. Players around the league will notice.


How did that work out for Nerlens Noel, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Shabazz Muhammad who turned down huge multi-year contracts?

Rich Paul wasn't the reason for Nerlens Noel turning down the contract
