Clippers forward Blake Griffin explained his contrarian theory on the View From The Cheap Seats podcast, saying he thinks James’ side has something “brewing” but it isn’t a plan to play in Los Angeles as many suspect. “I could see [LeBron] going to New York before L.A. I still think, when you go to the Garden, it’s a completely different feeling,” Griffin said. “The energy, there seems like there’s just a consistent buzz the entire game. … Even last year when you go play them, it’s still there.”

The 76ers will focus on the start of free agency before turning their attention to finding a general manager. But coach Brett Brown, the team’s interim GM, said he doesn’t think they will have to look far for a new GM. “There’s so much in place that is good here,” Brown said of the Sixers’ front office.
Brown has said he doesn’t want the GM job, too, preferring to go back to focusing solely on coaching. Of the current front office executives, Marc Eversley, vice president of player personnel, is regarded as the best candidate for the GM job. Co-owner David B. Heller could continue to have a huge say regardless of who the Sixers hire.
