David Blatt's second NBA season seemed to be going better than his first. Now, it's over.
Blatt was fired Friday by the title-chasing Cavaliers, replaced by top assistant Tyronn Lue, said David Griffin, the team's general manager.
Griffin told reporters Friday night that the Cavs had been taking steps back and were lacking connection. The team isn't in the business of being "pretty good," he said.
Blatt led Cleveland to the NBA Finals last year. He was fired one day after expressing frustration with criticism of a team that's 30-11 and the top team in the Eastern Conference.
Now that the leaching of poisonous lead into the tap water of Flint, Mich., has been declared a national emergency, it might be time to dial back the panic just a notch (or two).
