Griffin said James worked too hard. But who’s at fault? “I’m really, really disappointed that we didn’t do a better job as an organization of keeping him from doing three-a-days this offseason,” Griffin said. James’ training is primarily overseen by his personal trainer, Mike Mancias, who is on the Cavs’ payroll but has been with James no matter which team he’s played for since 2005. In September, James and Mancias set up shop in Miami, where James said he worked out up to three times per day.
Mike Mancias Rumors
The Heat certainly aren’t bending over backward to James. Sources say trainer Mike Mancias and former Cavs liaison Randy Mims, who followed James to South Beach, aren’t allowed to fly on the Heat’s team jet to away games. Neither was hired by the Heat.
