Mike Brown........ FIRED!

Mitch - Don't do it!

Mike Brown has been fired as the Cleveland Cavaliers' coach after only one season with the team.

The Cavaliers announced their decision to fire Brown on Monday, also saying that David Griffin has been promoted to full-time general manager.

"This is a very tough business," Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said in a statement released by the team. "It pains all of us here that we needed to make the difficult decision of releasing Mike Brown."

The Cavaliers went just 33-49 this season under Brown, who was serving his second stint as the team's coach.

"Mike worked hard over this last season to move our team in the right direction," Gilbert said. "Although, there was some progress from our finish over the few prior seasons, we believe we need to head in a different direction. We wish Mike and his family nothing but the best."

Incredible. This guy has stolen a lot of money lol
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.

I don't even...

Why would you give the guy that contract? And then fire him?... That organization is just a small notch above the Clippers and it might be because they lack the longevity that the Clippers showed.

Someone send V. Stiviano to Gilbert please.

That situation to me was Gilbert trying to correct his decision to get rid of Brown in the first place in order to keep Lebron. The problem is that he miscalculated how much Lebron was actually responsible for the success they had when Brown was the coach. I think now he knows.

In a race between Gilbert and jimmy, I think they are running neck and neck. In the meantime, Brown kicked both their a--es.

1) Former Cavs GM Chris Grant (who was fired earlier in the year) and Mike Brown were buddies in college. He hired Brown, because Brown had his back.

2) Since Gilbert fired Grant and hired a new GM, that new GM gets to choose the coach.

How stupid do you have to be to HIRE him a second time in the first place? You hire him after the disaster he has with us, and you expect something different, come on.

The amount of money this man has made off of cancelled contracts is staggering. His entire fortune is based off a piggy back ride that LBJ gave him.

That was a 5 year deal. :man4:

5th year partially guaranteed, but including $7M split this past season and next season with us, dude's looking at $15M just to sit on his arse! :man10: Mike Brown's got the last laugh.

I'll just state that MDA > Brown. Which doesn't say much, but it's true.

Mike Brown is so stupid he can convince others he knows what he is doing as a coach as he speaks with a pathological conviction with his expertise and crummy systems and dvds. In the monetary success and contracts attained this stupidity may be some hitherto unknown form of savant genius. He has a magnet for the path of least resistance attracting the worst gms with his magical crap magnet. I cannot but admire and give kudos to this hudsucker proxy and his forest gump basketball acumen. He should have stayed a video editor for the spurs.

I don't think I've ever heard of an NBA coach fired after 1 year on a 5 year deal.

This is actually a legitimate possibility.

As is D'Antoni going to Golden State...

I don't know how these coaches keep finding work.

My real gripe with Mike DamnPhony is that he ran Kobe's arse into the ground and ruined his career. So he can go F himself for that.

Kobe ran himself into the ground, and MDA did nothing to stop it, because he could not say anything to Kobe. Doesn't make me like him any better, but don't think for a second he tried to force Kobe to play.
