Newly hired Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin made it clear at his press conference on Tuesday: Kyrie Irving had nothing to do with the firing of head coach Mike Brown according to  Jodie Valade of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

“Any — any — insinuation that Kyrie Irving had anything to do with this decision is patently false,” Griffin said, pounding the table where he sat for emphasis. “It’s unfair. He was not counseled on this decision, nor was he counseled on the previous decision. It’s a completely unfair assertion and one that I want everyone to understand very clearly that is not a narrative we are going to go with.”

There has always been speculation that Irving didn’t care for Browns coaching style, nor his stagnant offensive system. Irvin will be a free agent at the end of next year if he does not sign a contract extension this summer.
