INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- When people asked for my take on Byron Scott before the season, I said two things:
1. Its not often a coach misses the playoffs for three straight years and holds on to his job.
2. The Cavaliers bad losses at home need to end.
Neither happened, and Scott was fired Thursday.
Scotts first problem was the Cavs defense. Not only did opponents regularly shoot...

CLEVELAND -- Four days ago, Byron Scott was on the hot seat.
At least, that was the skinny on the Internet and all the sports talk radio stations.
The Cavaliers had lost 10 straight and looked about as tough as five cuddly kittens when it came to defense and rebounding.

CLEVELAND -- Byron Scott believes the Cavaliers can be a playoff team in 2013-14.
Really, he does.
Not this version of the Cavs, mind you. But Scott bases his thinking on the idea that his roster will resemble a pro basketball team and not just some sort of waiting list for the Cleveland Clinic.
First thing is, stay healthy, Scott said of the Cavs future, prior to Fridays 97-87...
[San Antonio] didn’t give it to us easy. In the fourth quarter especially in the last five or six minutes and that’s about it. They’ve won four championships. [...] I think [the Spurs] are the best team in the league. I don’t know if they’re going to win it.

Youre not the only person tired of seeing the Cavaliers bring it against the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder and stink up the joint against the Detroit Pistons and Sacramento Kings.
Byron Scott is tired of it, too. That ought to count for something, considering hes the Cavs coach.
You know the story. These young Cavs have played with tons...
