The Cavs let go Tyronn Lue yesterday. Cavs are 0-6 to begin the season. He will collect $15 million

Larry Drew, a former NBA coach himself, on whether he is the team’s interim head coach or not:

“I’m not the interim coach. I’m the voice right now. Talks went on all day yesterday. They went on this morning and no type of settlement or agreement has been made and I don’t know if one will be made to be perfectly honest”

Dan Gilbert is reluctant to give Drew the contract he wants considering the fact that he’s still paying these gentlemen:

Where do Cavs go from here?

“Organizationally, make a decision about what they’re going to do. They had this summer to make a decision” – Windhorst

“They have got to make sure that this coach, who ever it is, has the backing of the organization” – Windhorst

“This goes back to ownership and the biggest problem is ownership” – Arnovitz

“This Larry Drew thing is going to be fascinating. It’s a game of chicken” – Arnovitz

“They’re going to have to move some guys out. They’re not going to make the playoffs” – Arnovitz

Dirk on LeBron: “He can catch Kareem” | Chances LeBron becomes all-time leading scorer?

“It is totally reasonable to believe that he can do this, provided that he remains durable” – Arnovitz

“The big thing will be: Who the Lakers sign next year? Will know a lot more when the Lakers have the next three years of their team set” – Windhorst

Dialogue has been provided already (Via Fred Katz of The Athletic):

Bradley Beal:

“I think sometimes we have our own agendas on the floor”

John Wall:

“If you can’t do it on both ends of the floor, you don’t need to be playing”

Austin Rivers:

“I’m not a fit-in type of guy. I’m a guy who goes out there and attacks people’s throats”

How can Wizards turn it around?

Wall Tweet.JPG

“They miss Marcin Gortat. I know that’s hard to believe. They (Wall and Gortat) used to run 40 pick-and-rolls a game and when that happened, guys got shots out of them, the ball got moved around/ They knew how to play with each other” – Windhorst

“They are not an elite defensive team and they are not constructed to beat an efficient offensive team” – Arnovitz

“This group has been here before” – Windhorst
