Amico Report: For Cavs, Blatt is where it's at

Why not? That's my feeling about the Cleveland Cavaliers' hiring of David Blatt as coach. Why not? The man has won overseas -- a lot. He is clearly well-respected by his players, both near and far. He possesses a system that stresses ball movement, lots of touches for the right people, a fun style of play that should excite both players and fans. So why not? What else were...

Three Options for Cavs Head Coaching Job

Can Tyronn Lue be the answer to the Cavs’ coaching questions? The Cleveland Cavaliers have been as dysfunctional as any organization in the NBA since LeBron James left in 2010. They fired Head Coach Mike Brown in 2010 and hired Byron Scott. After three years at the helm, Scott was axed and replaced by Brown, again. Brown agreed to a 5-year/$20 million deal before being fired after...

USATSI The 2013-14 season which was supposed to be a season full of promise, turned out to be a huge disappointment for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they had expectations of reaching the NBA Playoffs for the first time in the Post LeBron Era. Instead of qualifying for the playoffs, the Cavs finished the season with a record of 33-49, far below what was expected. It also marked another...

Cavs coaching candidate David Blatt and what it’s like to play point guard for him

When the Associated Press reported on Friday that the Cleveland Cavaliers were looking at David Blatt to potentially fill their head coaching vacancy I was immediately encouraged. Maybe even excited. In any case, it was the first time since Mike Brown was fired that my initial reaction involved positive enthusiasm related to a candidate linked with the opening. I wouldn’t need...

Cleveland Cavaliers looking for a “re-do” this off-season

Dating back to last off-season, the Cleveland Cavaliers made some aggressive moves in the draft, free agency, and via trades in hopes of surrounding their young core with veteran role players. However, those moves didn’t pan out as management anticipated and the Cavs still finished sixteen games under five-hundred. As a result, they fired their general manager and head coach, Mike...

Who’s Next? Breaking down the Cavaliers’ head coach candidates

Earlier this week, I shared my thoughts on Mike Brown’s termination after just one season. While I understood the statement the franchise was making after all of the declared playoff expectations pre-season, I couldn’t help but feeling that Mike Brown was a scapegoat for a lot of other problems with this front office and the roster as currently constructed. However, that’s...

In the NBA, coaching carousal taking unsightly spins

This is utter insanity. Seriously. How else can we describe what's taking place in the NBA? Coaches lose, and they get fired. Coaches win, and they get fired, too. Coaches are handed teams that resemble something along the lines of a D-League club in purple and gold (that means you, Los Angeles Lakers), and guess what? Those coaches get fired. Maurice Cheeks didn't even last...
