The deal that shipped Griffin east on Monday evidently occurred while James was napping. But the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar on Tuesday weighed in on the arguably stunning developments while alluding to the fact Griffin had just signed a five-year, $171 million last summer.

“He spent his last nine years there,” James said, via Cleveland.com. “He signed a multi-year deal there this summer, so that’s unfortunate. But that’s the business side of it. It’s both sides. It works both sides, though. It’s the business.”
