It is official, Cavaliers’ Coach Mike Brown is fired. He was let go right before a midnight deadline Sunday night because of his inability to win a NBA championship in his five years coaching. Brown getting fired right before this deadline was so Cleveland could avoid having to pay him his $4.5 million salary for this upcoming season.
Owner Dan Gilbert states “After a long and deep analysis of all of the factors that led to the disappointing early ends to our playoff runs over the past two seasons, we concluded that it was time for the Cavaliers to move in a different direction.”
Ouch. Sorry Cleveland, first Lebron and now Coach Brown ..is it time to find a new team to root for?
