David Blatt firing the latest “Only in Cleveland” moment
As Cleveland fans we’ve come to realize that we can’t expect championships from the local sports teams.
But that doesn’t mean things are ever boring.
The latest example came on Friday, when the Cleveland Cavaliers firmly took hold of the “most dysfunctional team in town” title by firing head coach David Blatt at the midway point of his second season.
In doing so, the Cavs are just the third team in the past 40 seasons fire their head coach the season after an NBA Finals appearance. They also become the first team in NBA history to fire a head coach with a winning percentage as high as Blatt’s, which is at .732 after Thursday’s win against the Los Angeles Clippers.
