    Cavaliers Fire Coach Brown

    CLEVELAND -- Mike Brown won everything in five years coaching the Cleveland Cavaliers. Everything, that is, except an NBA title. Brown, the most successful coach in franchise history, was fired after failing to win a championship with superstar -- and soon-to-be free agent -- LeBron James.

    The Cavaliers had a midnight deadline Sunday night to fire the head coach or pay him his full $4.5 million salary for next season.

    Cleveland was ousted from the playoffs two weeks ago by the Boston Celtics, who upset the NBA's top regular-season team in six games in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

    Cavs owner Dan Gilbert made the decision to fire Brown after an organizational review that began following the Cavs' exit from the playoffs. Continue Reading>>>


    Did I think he was an overrated coach? Yes. Did he deserve to get the axe? Not so sure about that. Is it his fault Mo Williams and Antwan Jamison completely fell off the face of the earth in the playoffs? Now they must make a splash hire and hire someone proven of at least being on Brown's level. How does this effect LeBron's decision?

    Who knew that back to back 60+ win seasons earns you the pink slip of death nowadays? There is no way they get Tom Izzo or Coach K either. Sometime the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

    I think firing the head coach was the next logical step here, seeing they have re-tooled and added pieces to make the team better overall. Something is not clicking in Cleveland maybe its Brown, maybe its not but i'm sure someone will be calling Brown here very soon for his next job.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
