The front office now believes LeBron James was brilliant in lashing out about the state of the Cleveland Cavaliers' roster.

The front office now believes LeBron James was brilliant in lashing out about the state of the Cleveland Cavaliers' roster.

"We top-heavy as s---," James said on Jan. 23 after the Cavaliers lost for the fifth time in seven games. "It's me, [Kyrie Irving], [Kevin Love]. It's top-heavy."

James also said that he had hoped the franchise wasn't satisfied with winning one ring.

David Griffin fired back the next day and called James' statements 'misguided.'

Cleveland is 11-4 since the incident and the assessment has galvanized the team. Griffin on the team's shift, told ESPN "it's joyful to watch." 

The Warriors have been the ultimate motivator for the Cavaliers throughout the past year.
