LeBron James unsure about Ty Lue’s job security

Tyronn Lue

LeBron James did not exactly give Tyronn Lue the strongest endorsement after the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday.

Following the loss, James was asked what the Cavs need to do differently and did not identify one thing. He also was asked about the possibility of Lue being fired and said he hoped that wouldn’t happen.

Well, that’s not exactly comforting if you’re Lue. You’d rather have someone completely defending you and dismissing talks of a firing as crazy. He didn’t exactly get that.

Including Saturday’s 148-124 loss to OKC, the Cavaliers have now lost five of their last six games. Their defense in particular was horrendous (as it’s been lately), as they allowed the Thunder to make 58 percent of their shots. Maybe it’s as simple as figuring out how to play with Isaiah Thomas in the lineup, as they’re 3-4 in games he’s played. Lue better hope he’s not next to get the David Blatt treatment.
