Default Report: Cavaliers dismiss Brown

Quote:
The Cleveland Cavaliers, fresh off a six-game, second-round loss to the Boston Celtics, have fired coach Mike Brown, SI.com reported Friday, citing two unnamed league sources.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was scheduled to address the media at 2:30 p.m. ET, though specifics of what he was to address beyond the team's ouster from the playoffs were undetermined.

General manager Danny Ferry was to be made available at 4 p.m.

ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher was told by a team source, when asked about the report, that it was "not accurate."

Brown is a year removed from winning the NBA's coach of the year award and three years removed from leading the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals.

He has gone 272-138 as coach for the Cavaliers over five seasons, having recorded the best record of the NBA's 2009-10 regular season at 61-21.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

It had to be done. His team totally fell appart on him, and he was unable to establish a proper rotation. On top of which you have all his defensive mistakes (Shaq on KG, seriously ?).

that was the worst thing about not only this series but the playoffs as a whole... we're suppose to be a strong defensive team

I liked Brown and thought he did a great job coaching in Cleveland. I just don't know why he messed with the rotation during the playoffs. Firstly, JJ started in almost every game during the season. The players are used to him. JJ is benched almost the entire first round vs. Chicago. Daniel Gibson is benched for good around January, only used when people have injuries or during blowouts. So why the hell put him out there with some decent playing time in the middle of the Boston series? Chemistry pays off. We saw how cluster****ed the Cavs were during the first few games of the season and even losing the first 3 games they got Jamison. Its because they had no chemistry! Look what happened once they got it right, they could not lose. I just don't get it.

As SVG said, it's not about winning and losing anymore it's about expectations, and sadly the expectations for the Cavs were very high the last 2 years, and they still came up very short. So you can't blame the Cavs for firing Mike Brown.
