    I am shocked! :shocked:

    Report: Cleveland Cavaliers fire coach Mike Brown despite 61-win season - ESPN

    EDIT: ESPN is reporting that it's not yet a done deal, but here is the original SI report:

    Cavs fire Brown after second-round loss

    Probably making a run for Phil Jackson in an attempt to keep LeBron around. What I hear on the radio is if the Cavs lose LeBron, the team's market value will decrease by ~$100 million.

    There was pretty much a 0% chance to re-sign LeBron if this didn't happen. Not a shock.

    I am kind of surprised that this happened considering that he took the cavs to the finals in 2007 (well maybe it was LeBron) but he was a good coach and will find another job quickly. He just didn't get it done in crunch time.

    Where is Shaq in all this discussion of how crappy the Cavs season turned out? He was supposed to get the King a Ring. What a friggin joke.

    Lebron leaves for New Jersey and their multi billionaire owner.

    Shaq was brought in for them to get past Howard and the Magic...period. Unfortunately, for the Cavs, they never made it to the Magic.

    Boys Boys - no need to get so excited, it's just the NBA- not worth fighting over. Now if it was about girl scout cookies, beer, or what kind of tv- then you can exchange words.
