When David Griffin first became the Cleveland Cavaliers permanent General Manager in May of 2014, I have to say initially I wasn't that impressed.
Griff seemed to be that guy that read too many motivational books by Pat Riley, or Rick Pitino. Some of his dynamite drop-ins that day included:
"This is not about being first, it's about getting it right."
"Fit extends to every decision we make."
"The bandwith of this organization is mind-numbing."
"I don't want us to chase any trend, I want us to get results."
There were a lot of those fortune cookie nuggets that day. Bruce Hooley and I used to have fun playing some of them back on our radio show on ESPN Cleveland back then.
