Sources close to LeBron James told ESPN.com that the four-time MVP was "shocked" by the comments made by Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin about his time with the Cavaliers and the trouble of building a team around James in a Sports Illustrated feature by Jake Fischer.

Griffin told Fischer he was "miserable" trying to construct championship rosters in Cleveland and it was "not fun." He also said he knew he was going to leave the team following the 2016 championship and "I don't think [James is] the same animal anymore about winning."

In addition to the comment reported by ESPN.com, James appeared to fire off a tweet about Griffin's comments.

James's former teammate with the Cavaliers, Kendrick Perkins, also fired off a tweet in response to what Griffin had to say.

Griffin was the Cavaliers' general manager from 2014-2017 and spent three seasons in Cleveland with James.
