If we haven’t learned by now how much the world of NBA coaching revolves around the phrase “what have you done for me lately,” the latest rumors regarding David Blatt should be all you need to know.
The Cleveland Cavaliers coach is conducting his season-ending presser today. His team, which essentially saw a massive talent drop-off on the roster after LeBron James, was eliminated in the Finals by the Golden State Warriors Tuesday. The Cavs forced the series to six games, a valiant effort considering the injuries they dealt with. Yes, a lot of credit is due to the astounding numbers James put up, but you can’t ignore Blatt’s impact with the team.
This, of course, makes it confusing to hear Cleveland’s coach is still in danger of losing his job.
