David Griffin was not fond of his time with LeBron James, when Griffin was the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers and James was in the background calling the shots.

Griffin, the vice president of basketball operations with the New Orleans Pelicans, told Sports Illustrated in an article published Thursday that his days in Cleveland were pressure-packed and "miserable."

"Everything we did was so inorganic and unsustainable and, frankly, not fun," Griffin told SI. "Literally the moment we won the championship I knew I was going to leave. There was no way I was going to stay for any amount of money."

Griffin said part of the rub for him and others in that position is James will get all the credit and zero blame. "That's not fun for people," he said. "They don't like being part of that world."
