After a good first season with Eastern Conference title and close encounter with NBA championship, Blatt is released from Head Coach post. Assistant Coach Tyronn Lue will resume his duties as Head Coach in the upcoming match with Chicago Bulls.
Ty is an NBA guy with 11 season as NBA player and different positions with Celtics and Clippers. Doc endorsed him in the past and also highest paid Assistant Coach for Cavaliers. May be he is the missing piece in Cavs game plan. Only time can reveal the outcome of this change.
Great teams are not always made of great players instead they are made of great trust. May be Blatt could not make that connection. As David Griffin said after the change is announced, "there is a disconnect between players and coach" and it is not clearly evident in the locker room. Over all a surprise move in the middle of the season but I think this should reset the mindset and focus more on the main goal, that is winning the championship.
Good luck Blatt and welcome to Ty!
