LeBron James has tepid response when asked about Tyronn Lue’s job safty

LeBron James was no fan of David Blatt, so he was let go around the All-Star break with the Cavaliers a couple of years ago when the team had the best record in the East.

Now the Cavaliers have fallen to third in the East and have lost 8-of-11, were blown out by the Thunder on national television on Saturday, have one of the worst defenses in the NBA, and have a brutal stretch of games against good teams ahead.

Is Tyronn Lue’s job in danger? That question has been asked around Cleveland, and when LeBron was asked about it after the OKC loss his response was tepid (via Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com)

#Cavs LeBron James on Ty Lue possibly fired: “I would hope not, but really don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen with our team. I have no idea what conversations have been going on. I’ve been trying to stay as laser-sharp as I can to keep my guys ready to go out & play"

Is a coaching change really the answer? I’m not Lue’s biggest fan as a coach, I think Cleveland’s offense has too much isolation and can get simplistic, but he’s got an older team that lost Kyrie Irving (and replaced him with Isaiah Thomas, who just returned to the rotation a couple of weeks ago and is still getting his legs under him).

Maybe that wakes the team up, but the more likely change is a trade or two at the deadline. If Cleveland isn’t willing to put the Brooklyn pick in the mix (reportedly they will only do that for an elite superstar) it’s hard to see them getting a player that really makes a difference. However, get one who wakes the team up out of its malaise and plays a little defense, and the Cavaliers become more likely to out of the East.

It’s going to be an interesting few weeks in Cleveland.

He's probably out once James bolts anyways or even if James stays he'll probably ask for Fizdale

Spo? They might've had their problems but they won 2 rings together, made 2 more Finals, and he wasn't fired on LeBron's watch. That's not a bad relationship all things considered.

LeBron and Wade were about to get Spo fired till the Heat went on that winning streak. I remember all the shots they were trying to throw in the media and LeBron bumping him.

I tbh don't think LeBron has respected any coach he's had. When he pretty much moved Blatt to the side in the middle of Blatt trying to draw something up, like he didn't exist. It's very obvious why Blatt threw the shots at the Cavs he has. Probably no love loss there.

Yep. Good example.
This is the time we see Lebron's leadership cracks.
Cannot touch his minutes. Must be the unchallenged leader. Game cannot slow down.
Horrible shot selection threes.
"My way or the highway" contract strategy.
Love is the obvious scapegoat.
Even MJ knew how shut his mouth.

Lebron is a spoiled brat when things are not going well, and this is why he is 3/8 in NBA finals.

Riley was always going to take Spo's side over LeBron's which is probably one reason LeBron left the Heat. Riley wouldn't cowtow to him.
