Lebron gave David Blatt a terrible welcome to the NBA. Dude probably has trauma. Completely undermined in public, relieved of any real power to implement what you want, embarassed and slandered in media, and then fired in your 2nd season.

Shaq also called kobe a bitch. You pick and choose when Shaqs words count.


Actually, he's right. There was an article from a Cavs beat writer that said when it's timeout time, Lebron basically goes to the huddle and says 'Okay guys, this is what we're doing', and then they do it.

Let me find it.

Actually, he's right. There was an article from a Cavs beat writer that said when it's timeout time, Lebron basically goes to the huddle and says 'Okay guys, this is what we're doing', and then they do it.

Let me find it.


What about last years playoffs where Lebron said he scrapped the play that was called and ran what he wanted?

Here's Windhorst:

The Princeton offense that David Blatt installed in the preseason, they just threw that out. What typically happens—and this has been happening for like three months now—is LeBron will take the ball, and LeBron will call the play. David Blatt will see what play LeBron calls, and he will repeat it to the team. That happens on a regular basis

He's also straight up said that he will call his own plays that are different from the coach's

Do those retard reporters not realize Bosh with Lebron had reduced role in offense.

Bosh was averaging what Love is doing now ~15ppg.


You can put Cousins/Griffin in Cavs right now and they would be the same shiit.

Blatt was fired despite the Cavaliers having the best record in the Eastern Conference."

If not for Riley and Wade, Spo would have been fired right after they went 11-10 their first year.This. LeBron didn't have power over the Miami mafia so he dipped to take control of Cleveland.

Im shocked at the hiring of Lue over the firing of Blatt though. I seriously have no idea how LeGM thinks that Lue can out coach Kerr or Pop in a 7 game series. If they would have hired Thibbs i would have been able to see the logic but this is just full potato.

let's be real. Lebron doesn't want to be coached. He just needs someone as a placeholder that will defer to him and will fall on the sword when things go wrong. Tyronn is buddy-buddy with Lebron and this is just another classic case of Lebron hiring people in his circle

the stranglehold Lebron has on Cleveland is real




"Our coach, Mike Brown, was a nice guy, but he had to live on edge because nobody was supposed to be confrontational with LeBron," O'Neal writes. "Nobody wanted him to leave Cleveland, so he was allowed to do whatever he wanted to do."

It's an image of James that has been painted before but mostly through anonymous sources.

O'Neal cites a meeting in which the coach was called out for the double standard applied to James.

"I remember one day in a film session LeBron didn't get back on defense after a missed shot," O'Neal writes. "Mike Brown didn't say anything about it. He went to the next clip and it was Mo Williams not getting back and Mike was saying, 'Yo, Mo, we can't have that. You've got to hustle a little more.'

"So Delonte West is sitting there and he's seen enough and he stands up and says, 'Hold up, now. You can't be pussyfooting around like that. Everyone has to be accountable for what they do, not just some [of] us.' Mike Brown said, 'I know, Delonte. I know.' Mike knew Delonte was right.

That simply ain't good enough if your goal is the championship. To be honest, i don't get the outrage. Blatt was simply an awful coach. His rotations and defense schemes were atrocious. Last year he had Mosgov sitting on the bench the whole 4th quarter for no reason at all and i'll never understand why he played Delly 20+ mins each game.

Not sure if it was LBJ's or Blatt's idea to slow pace and limit possessions, and pound the ball to minimize GSW semi/transition.

Putting Moz on Iggy for stretches, getting LBJ different looks instead of strict left post isos, putting curry in 1/4 PnR with LBJ (lbj didnt shoot well off these plays, but Delly got a lot of wide open looks. thats on lebron to take advantage of the mismatch), james jones for offensive subs and stretching floor when Ezeli was in, having delly deny inbounds after makes to stop semi-transition.

he wasnt perfect obv, but given their 7 man rotation of LBJ, TT, Delly, Shump, Delly, James Jones, Mozgov, he did decent.

Over doc? The problem with blatt isn't his coaching abilities. We all know he can coach. His problem is that he doesn't have the personality(back bone) to lead a team to the promised land. Players didn't even respect him nor did they listen to him. At least players would listen when doc talks. It is not just about whether or not you can draw plays or call timeouts when needed. It is more about being able to a lead team, have the respect of players.

Respect in the NBA is overrated. It isn't the NFL where if a coach has a Marvin Lewis level of lack of respect from his players, they're going to go and pull a Burfict. A coach needs to mediate egos and obviously make adequate adjustments and rotations and whatnot. The problem is that the first is impossible because Lebron has an ego the size of Peyton's forehead. Can you imagine how much Kobe would be getting shredded if it's the last play of a playoff game and he says 'fuk your play, I'm going to go and do whatever I want, just give me the ball and get the hell out of my way'? Yet Lebron does it and it's all good because apparently the best coach in Europe sucks. You cannot coach somebody that is used to getting his way his entire career because nobody wants him to leave town.

Dude was obviously amazing in his prime and could get away with it back then but he's got to be willing to listen to a coach now that he can't do it all himself. Blatt, Lue, won't matter, either way they still won't beat GS or the Spurs.

yes i agree, blatt obviously didnt connect with the locker room and wasnt a good fit with such personality heavy teams (lol LBJ), but im saying people who dismiss his in-game coaching are probably just witchhunting. i specifically replied 2 u saying blatt made no adjustments.
im not sure about his "no backbone" thing, its just too diff. a situtation with LBJ having everything his way in CLE and Blatt taking the job before LBJ came. LBJ needs an infrastructure suited to his needs and Blatt obv didnt offer that.

if you cant have someone who can do both (Pop,Carlisile etc), you have a system like Doc HC + Thibs AC.

Its just a confusing move to make in the middle of the season when Blatt has been the same or better since last year.

and yes I would still take Blatt over Doc.

Obviously everyone has done it, it's only Lebron that literally always does it. Phil would call out Shaq and Kobe in the media all the time. Lebron would leave town tomorrow if Blatt called him out on anything in the press.

Disagree with the last 2. You don't double Curry and he's going to drop 50 on that Australian scrub every night, and you absolutely have to ride Lebron into the ground when your next 2 best players are out.

they would have spent hours and hours on foreplay, getting himself relaxed enough just so hecan take it. i can just imagine himbegging for it, with lebron barely able to force it past the knob, and lue moaning and squirming, demanding him to force it in deeper. he would have orgasm'd within seconds of taking the entire length, being filled and stretched right up to his cervix.. the orgasm would have been powerful, with her anal muscles clamping down on lebron's throbbing monstrosity, her whole body quivering in euphoria..

Disagree with the last 2. You don't double Curry and he's going to drop 50 on that Australian scrub every night, and you absolutely have to ride Lebron into the ground when your next 2 best players are out.

Curry is too good a passer to double. Detroit showed the blueprint to beating the Warriors. Play single on Curry and stay at home on the shooters.

If they go with Lue they are full potato, Thibs would be perfect. I will can my Cav's title hopes if they don't at least reach out to Thibs to see what he says - Lue would just be a Lebron cuck and more of the same **** we've already seen a hundred times.

And lol at the players thinking it was Kevin Love being traded, funny.

He's the perfect LeBron coach. Defensive minded, LeBron coaches offense.

nobody is gonna make Lebron play defense



"Our coach, Mike Brown, was a nice guy, but he had to live on edge because nobody was supposed to be confrontational with LeBron," O'Neal writes. "Nobody wanted him to leave Cleveland, so he was allowed to do whatever he wanted to do."

It's an image of James that has been painted before but mostly through anonymous sources.

O'Neal cites a meeting in which the coach was called out for the double standard applied to James.

"I remember one day in a film session LeBron didn't get back on defense after a missed shot," O'Neal writes. "Mike Brown didn't say anything about it. He went to the next clip and it was Mo Williams not getting back and Mike was saying, 'Yo, Mo, we can't have that. You've got to hustle a little more.'

"So Delonte West is sitting there and he's seen enough and he stands up and says, 'Hold up, now. You can't be pussyfooting around like that. Everyone has to be accountable for what they do, not just some [of] us.' Mike Brown said, 'I know, Delonte. I know.' Mike knew Delonte was right.

lebron james is known to be THE most hung guy in the nba, possibly one of the biggest in the world. his cock has been described as "like an evian bottle", with gargantual thickness that would rival shane diesel and shorty mac. im estimating his size to be at least 8.5" bone pressed, with OVER 7" of girth. he would have absolutely destroyed lue's angus.

they would have spent hours and hours on foreplay, getting himself relaxed enough just so hecan take it. i can just imagine himbegging for it, with lebron barely able to force it past the knob, and lue moaning and squirming, demanding him to force it in deeper. he would have orgasm'd within seconds of taking the entire length, being filled and stretched right up to his cervix.. the orgasm would have been powerful, with her anal muscles clamping down on lebron's throbbing monstrosity, her whole body quivering in euphoria..

i bet he still masturbates to the memory of it

From the beginning, the Klutch Sports campaign to puncture Blatt's standing as head coach had been as relentless as it was ruthless. James is one of the great leaders in pro sports, and he directed the Cavaliers how he wanted them: in complete defiance of Blatt.

Finally, James' camp had its way on Friday, the Cavaliers firing the coach of the defending Eastern Conference champions and runaway No. 1 seed. Over a season and a half on the job, associate head coach Tyronn Lue fought hard to stay loyal to Blatt, balancing that line of hearing out James' and Paul's barrages on Blatt and yet still urging them to give the coach a chance.

Why are all of you blaming this on Lebron?

Blatt is a terrible coach

Ultimately, Blatt had little staying power with the Cavaliers, because James had turned Blatt's removal into an inevitability. As the games wore on, opposing players on the floor weren't only watching James constantly wave off plays from the coach – but role players feeling emboldened to disregard the head coach's instructions, too.

James had the Cavaliers existing in open rebellion for more than a season now, with no Pat Riley in the organizational shadows to scare everyone into compliance.

Despite winning 11 of 13 games – losing only to the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs – James had become increasingly vocal in his opposition of Blatt in recent practice sessions and game environments. Within the franchise, it was hard to hear anything else. LeBron James and Rich Paul never had to walk into the GM's office and demand the firing of the coach. All together, they had the capability of making everyone's life hell until the deed was done.

Brendan Haywood spilling similar anecdotes to what Shaq wrote in his book




Coach Blatt was very hesitant to challenge LeBron James. It was one of those situations where, being a rookie coach, and LeBron being bigger than life, it was a little too much for him. I remember we had James Jones [talk] to Coach about how, ‘Hey, you can’t just skip over when LeBron James makes a mistake in the film room.’ Because we all see it.

And we’re like, ‘Hey, you didn’t say anything about that. You’re going to correct when Matthew Dellavedova‘s not in the right spot. You’re going to say something when Tristan Thompson‘s not in the right spot. Well, we see a fast break and LeBron didn’t get back on defense or there’s a rotation and he’s supposed to be there, and you just keep rolling the film and the whole room is quiet.’ We see that as players. That’s when … as a player, you start to lose respect for a coach.

Slowly but surely, that respect started chipping away where he would kind of be scared to correct LeBron in film sessions. When he would call every foul for LeBron in practice. Those type of things add up. Guys are like, ‘C’mon man, are you scared of him?’

I'd disagree there. You don;t get how far he has and not have that intrinsic motivation to win/be the best, and I think that would outweigh his ego to control a team top to bottom. I think a part of him wanted to go home/win a ring for the Cavs, and he also believed they offered a better chance to win a ring (more manoeuvre to move, especially with the number one pick). Ironically, I reckon the Heat being old and injury prone played a part as well, yet the Cavs look just as bad in the injury department.

His ego has helped him become the player he is but it has also been the thing that has stopped him being greater. You just struggle to see Lebron getting coached over the last few years like any other player

Two years later, the three of them would spend the summer together with USA Basketball on the way to the London Olympics. Back in 2008 with Team USA, Bryant could still intimidate LeBron James – with those around the league's two biggest stars marveling at the ways with which Bryant preyed on James' vulnerabilities. Only, James was a different man in 2012 – an NBA champion now – and had surpassed Bryant as the world's best player.

I can understand the firing of Blatt if no one respected or listened to him. Having said that, it seemed like Lebron undermined him. If you want to fire Blatt, fine but at least have a good coach waiting in the wings. Why would you give Lue a multiyear deal. It seems like a poor decision. Lue is supposed to beat Pop or steve kerr? Lol. I cant see that happening.

I agree with Woj that Lebron probably forced the firing by undermining the guy at every turn. You know that if Lebron wanted him there theres no way this would have happened. Lebron needs a Phil Jackson, Pop, or Pat Riley to handle the situation and not give Lebron so much power. Lebron has made his bed and now its time to lay in it.

I dont want to hear any excuses from Lebron. Hes handpicked his team and has an almost automatic finals appearance. He just has to beat 1 great team to win a championship.

i don't know man, i mean i can definitely see that lebron wants to bring the trophy to cleveland, but let's consider this for a second. he was running the show in cleveland, went to miami, was treated differently there, and comes back (after winning 2 RINGS), and does the same exactly thing as before he won the 2 rings. that seems like the complete inverse of the phrase "learning from your mistakes". everyone makes mistakes in order to win but what lebron does there seems odd.

there are many other great players that have no problem in being coached equally as their teammates and held liable. how many other players in the league tries to check themselves out of the game at will? what type of tone do you think that sets? he implements barriers around himself from every aspect of the team. the guy literally has his way from top to bottom in that organization, and he doesn't even have to do the talking. he has his goons that push for deals like kevin love trade and tristan thompson signing despite it being a retarded move. the guy can get anything he wants with that team, and we see it as clear as daylight. i think the right to exercise those types of powers was more of a factor in him going back. he still had a legitimate team with the heat, and the executives in that organization know how to build and sustain a winning environment. he just thought that he could manufacture the same thing on his own + have a legitimate "throne".

I have no problem with the firing but the way they've tried to spin it with PR is just laughable

i don't know man, i mean i can definitely see that lebron wants to bring the trophy to cleveland, but let's consider this for a second. he was running the show in cleveland, went to miami, was treated differently there, and comes back (after winning 2 RINGS), and does the same exactly thing as before he won the 2 rings. that seems like the complete inverse of the phrase "learning from your mistakes". everyone makes mistakes in order to win but what lebron does there seems odd.

there are many other great players that have no problem in being coached equally as their teammates and held liable. how many other players in the league tries to check themselves out of the game at will? what type of tone do you think that sets? he implements barriers around himself from every aspect of the team. the guy literally has his way from top to bottom in that organization, and he doesn't even have to do the talking. he has his goons that push for deals like kevin love trade and tristan thompson signing despite it being a retarded move. the guy can get anything he wants with that team, and we see it as clear as daylight. i think the right to exercise those types of powers was more of a factor in him going back. he still had a legitimate team with the heat, and the executives in that organization know how to build and sustain a winning environment. he just thought that he could manufacture the same thing on his own + have a legitimate "throne".



this.

This, Heat with LeBron assuming (Bosh didn't suffer freak blood clots) would be in the finals last seasib and this year ESPECIALLY with Whiteside in the mix. The notion of the importance of having a bigger window was silly to me as first Love and Kyrie would need to learn how to win and obtain playoff experience (ala how the Warriors progressed each year). Before LeBron came back Love was a loser and he STILL needs to learn to play defense before Cavs have any chance at beating Spurs/GSW. LeBron is 31, his individual window as a top 5 player is shortened regardless. So Wade and Bosh>> Kyrie and Love now currently and when that latter actually gets better (due to the decline of Wade and Bosh), LeBron would be old and withered as well anyways.

The biggest thing for LeBron was going back home and having the ability run the strings and do things the way he wanted while still contending. Nothing to do with a "better chance at winning a ring", he knew Riley had experience in building a championship team prior to his signing (the whole rings on the table ploy) and could easily build one again in 2016. All a brand and power scheme as I said before.

Riley would never sign Lebron to single/2 year contract that gave him the leeway to just up and leave if he wasn't getting his way after every season. Also allowing him to renegotiate to make sure he was always the highest paid player. For a guy that signed a lifetime contract with Nike, he sure values the ability to just bounce on his team if he isn't getting everything he wants.

Spot on. I remember Kobe being Kobe in those 4th quarters, especially when he bailed out lebron in the gold medal game.

Source on the "feast on weaknesses" part? I wanna see this lol (even though i might have heard it before and just forgotten)

Also imagine if lebron did what jordan did in 1992 and forced a player off Team Usa (kinda similar to the amount of leverage bron has right now in CLE)

Would've looked pretty foolish like u said lol

He did do this. There's a reason Isiah didn't play on the dream team.

Edit: Think I misread this. My bad, carry on.

Didn't Jordan almost force Christian Laettner off the team? I could have swore watching that E60 or whatever on him that everyone was a complete dick to him lol

It's a shame that Lebron has had most of the power in any environment since coming into the NBA. You have to wonder how much he even lets coaches coach him anymore.

Don't agree that nothings Lebron's fault but the point that no-one seems to have put him in his place at some point, I do.

Not sure about this. I don't feel that he had anything over Spo just because I feel he's Rileys ''guy''. Said in an earlier thread that if Lebron approached Riley and wanted a change in coaches that Riley would have put him in his place.

If you read some of the reports it comes across that the problem wasn't between Blatt and Lebron, but more everyone outside of ''The Big 3''. As they got special treatment.

He is a master of deception to the casuals. Free ride through a LeEastern conference finals his entire career, stat pads and sits against elite defenders, cherry picks his shots.

All LeCorn hate aside, if Cavs traded him I think they have a shot at the title.

this. lol'd at lebron being 3/12 vs jimmy butler and 8/15 vs other defenders last night. typical. lebron can't score 1 v1 aganist good perimeter defenders. his points come either on pnr switches, leakouts, on the backup, or like last night in garbage time when teams are willing to give up layups as opposed to 3's.

No they wouldn't. They'd lack any discipline or leadership needed to beat the likes of the Spurs or warriors. The problem is them not realizing lebron isn't as athletic as before because of age and they need to revamp the offense to be successful. Like many have pointed out, he doesn't want that.

To his defense, a lot of times I feel like he does it because no one else really wants to step up and take control.
