LeBron James Fires David Blatt as Head Coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers
LeBron James has fired David Blatt and named himself as the GM, Head Coach, Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Small Forward, Power Forward and Center.
Well... Not really, but the David Blatt firing is real.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired David Blatt halfway into his second year on the job according to multiple media reports.
During his tenure, Blatt went 83-40 as the Cavs head coach.
Tyronn Lu has been named the replacement for Blatt and has received a 3 year extension.
Many are speculating that LeBron forced Blatt out and regardless if that is true or not, the fit with Blatt just wasn't there.
A season ago, the rumors were everywhere that Blatt may be out in year one but he survived and took the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently in first place in the Eastern Conference.
