LeBron James denied today that he had anything to do directly with the decision of the Cleveland Cavaliers to fire David Blatt.
“That’s not my concern,” he said during his meeting with press. “I found out about it just like every other player on this team at 3:30 yesterday. … I think [GM David Griffin] was right on everything he said…Like it or love it or hate it, we got to respect it.”
“We’ve been friends since I was 17 years old,” James said of the new coach Tyronn Lue. “But it ended today. … He’s still the coach and I’m underneath him.”
