The much-criticized Cleveland Cavaliers’ front office — general manager Koby Altman and owner Dan Gilbert — has received a couple of ringing endorsements from a pair of well-respected NBA guys.
In the wake of Cleveland’s flurry of activity before the NBA trade deadline Thursday, former NBA executives David Griffin — the Cavaliers’ general manager until parting ways with the organization last summer — and Bobby Marks — former assistant GM of the Nets — both now of ESPN sent kudos the Cavaliers’ way.
So much for a novice GM in Koby Altman who is “over his head” with this job.

As you know better than anyone, Bobby, perception and reality typically have a spurious connection at best. Koby Altman and the @cavs front office were never in over their heads, just handed a nearly untenable situation and have found a way to thrive in the adversity! https://t.co/bJlE13gMN8
