Default Mike Brown Fired

People are reporting it on RGM saying they heard it on ESPNRADIO.

Well deserved. Their offence has been putrid and predictable for years, and in getting players like Williams Jamison and Shaq, and having previous starters like West Varajao and Z off the bench as great depth, theres no excuse not being able to integrate the new players in a more creative better offence. Running the same Lebron pick and roll from the elbows and Lebron ISOs when he had so much more help this year is a joke.

If Lebron had a great coach this year who actually knew how to run an offence and utilize Williams/Jamison/Shaq correctly I think they win it all.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is holding a press conference and just said coach Mike Brown hasn't been fired.

"That's not true," Gilbert said of a Sports Illustrated report, citing two sources, that said Brown was fired.

"We are right now going through the evaluation process," Gilbert said. "We're talking to coach Brown, talking to (GM) Danny Ferry, getting all the information."

The Cavs org. Has just released a statement saying he hasn't been fired. I assume he will be but he's still their coach for now.

Somebody on the fan just said that the Cavs have told Lebron they won't participate in a S&T if he wants out. So they'll force him to take less money if he wants out. Not that it matters in Lebrons case since he makes a shit load in endorsements.

WTF? why would the Cavs say that? You might as well push him out the door with that kind of talk!

Could be playing hardball with LBJ right now.

Sign with us for more money or go sign somewhere else for less. LBJ loves money.

i posted this in another thread, but if i had to guess, this is why:

Quote:
if (when) lebrion leaves, i assumed cle would be in a dire situation. it's actually not as bad as i thought it was. certainly they will be terrible for a few years, but there is potential for rebuilding there.

shaq and lebron amount to $37+ mil coming off the books this year. that takes them down to approx $48 mil in committed salaries next year.

they have another $11+ mil in expiring contracts for next year, which would either be cap relief or trade value (west, parker and powe all have value as guys that can play and are expiring).

they will surely get a decent lottery pick next year and likely the year after that as well.

jamison only has one more year on his deal after next year. same with jamario.

mo williams contract starts declining in value after next year (dropping by a little over $800,000).

in 2011-2012 they only have $38 mil in committed salary. if they can get rid of jamison's expiring contract before then they will only have $23 mil in committed salary.

give them 2-3 years, a couple of lottery picks and the hope that they don't further fuck this situation up, and you have a team that is primed for rebuilding.

is that a silver lining?

Looks like its official:

From ESPN:
Quote:
CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired Mike Brown, a source close to the head coach told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.

The Cavaliers had a midnight deadline on Sunday to fire the 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.

Brown, who had one year left on his contract, could be quickly scooped up by one of the five other teams looking for head coaches. Brown has guided the team to the postseason in each of his five seasons. Cleveland's assistants also have one year remaining on their deals.

Brown was the league's coach of the year last season when the Cavs won 66 games. Cleveland lost to Orlando in the conference finals, however, and it was assumed Brown would have to get the team closer to a championship to keep his job.

Instead, the Cavs regressed. They were badly outplayed by the Celtics, who won the last two games played in Cleveland by a combined 50 points. But Cavs owner Dan Gilbert insisted last week that the team didn't quit against Boston.

"It's one of those things that you can't believe it after it's happened," Gilbert said. "I feel bad for the fans more than anybody."

Cleveland's next move will be an interesting one. Because of LeBron James' uncertain future, it's possible the Cavs would want his input into their next coaching hire, assuming the two-time MVP is still considering re-signing with Cleveland when free agency opens in July. The Cavs will have to search for a new coach not knowing if James will be back and would have to go into the draft and free agency without a coach.

James is eligible to opt out of his contract this summer, a move that would make the two-time MVP -- and zero-time NBA champion -- a free agent and set off a scramble for his services from New York to Miami to Los Angeles and, of course, back in Cleveland.
