The Cavaliers announced Sunday morning that they have fired Tyronn Lue after an 0-6 start. The move is a little bit surprising given the fact that LeBron leaving for Los Angeles was only going to result in bad things for Cleveland.

The reason the Cavs are in this situation to begin with responded to the news of Lue’s firing on Twitter. LeBron thanked his former coach for helping him bring a championship to Cleveland and told him he knew where to find him.
T Lue thanks for the memories and more importantly our partnership bringing a 🏆 to that deserved city/fan base. U know how to find me 🙏🏾

Is someone feeling guilty? If I’m Lue, I’m reaching out immediately and asking LeBron for the rest of the money owed on my contract.
