Much was directed at the Cavaliers for dumping a coach whose team was sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings and who had complied an 83-40 record in roughly season and a half.Tyronn Lue has heard plenty of criticism over the handling of David Blatts’s ouster as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“Me and Blatt are cool,” Lue said to cleveland.com. “We’ve spoken a few times since [he was let go]. I texted him a few days ago, so it’s not what people want to think.
