  • Doin' it right  

    On Jan. 22, 2016, David Blatt was fired as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Despite the fact Cleveland led the Eastern Conference with a 30-11 record at the time of his dismissal, Blatt was still fired. Though he led the Cavs to the NBA Finals the season before, he was still shown the door. Blatt, who had an impressive resume consisting of 24 years in the NBA in some capacity as well as tremendous success coaching internationally, was fired midway through a fairly successful season with his team 19 games above .500.

  • Making moves

    The Golden State Warriors won their second title in three years last month. With all the confetti swept and all the celebrations complete, now comes the wildest and most interesting period of time in the NBA outside of the regular and postseason: free agency. Over the next several weeks and months, players will leave behind fan bases that cheered them on so loyally, deals will be made that might just give a team a missing piece needed to make a run at the NBA title and moves made will set the stage for next season, which is roughly only four months away.
