David Blatt may have been Greg Popovich in Europe, but in the NBA, he’s simply the rookie head coach for a loaded Cavs team that has gotten off to an awful start.
Even after a 06-74 win over the Orlando Magic–that saw the Cavs move to 6-7 on the season–Blatt is still a work in progress.
He’s also starting to some shots from his peers.
In a column from Howard Beck of Bleacher...
