Cleveland Sports 360:
Dan Gilbert owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers has seen enough to know, Byron Scott isn’t getting it done. The Cavaliers have fired the head coach after watching him lead the Cavs to a record of 24-58 this season. Scott has had a problem keeping his team motivated. The Cavs would lose games they should have won in the final minutes of the 4th quarter. Scott took over the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010, the year LeBron James took his talents to south beech, which didn’t help Scott’s Cavaliers win any games. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said, “The Cavaliers would win a championship before the Miami Heat would.” Not with the way Byron Scott was leading the team. This year Scott had some talented player and the team still couldn’t win many games. The team even pulled off a trade in the middle of the season, and Scott still couldn’t get wins in Cleveland. It is official according to my sources, Byron Scott is officially done as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
