Will Firing Tyron Lue fix the Cavs' Problems?

Tyron Lue



Here's why it will and why it will not

Whenever a team struggles on the court, the blame always goes to the coach. ALWAYS. But sometimes, firing your own head coach, who led your team to big wins and championships, doesn't fix anything.

With the case of Tyronn Lue, coach of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, it's likely that he will be the next NBA head coach to lose his job this season. Why?

Here's why:

Instead of leading the Eastern Conference, the Cavaliers are currently in the 3rd spot with a 27-18 record. They are only half a game ahead of the Miami Heat. They have dropped 7 of their previous 10 games and things aren't looking good for the Cavs as they are set to face the San Antonio Spurs.

Defensive problems have been visible in 5 of the last 6 games of the Cavs as they gave up a whopping 148 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder in front of their fans. And apparently, Tyronn Lue was to blame for those defensive lapses.

And apparently, the Cavs are not practicing more often than they should be- that is according to Isaiah Thomas who said that he can only get back into basketball shape if the Cavs are practicing.

So, if the Cavs are not practicing as frequent as they should be given their ongoing struggles, and none of Tyronn Lue's defensive strategies seems to be producing more wins for Cleveland, will firing him fix things?


Yes

Assuming that the Cavs' front office has grown tired of seeing Tyronn Lue's seemingly puzzled face especially when the Cavs are trailing by a big margin, firing him MIGHT be a good move for Cleveland assuming that they will hire a more experienced head coach to replace him, it will help in terms of providing a new face at the helm which could also allow a fresher aura to enter the locker room. But again, that depends on who will replace Tyronn Lue and how will the players react.


Nope!

Regardless of who will replace Tyronn Lue if the problems are continuing to build up internally meaning the problems are caused by the players themselves, then firing Tyronn Lue will be useless because the internal problems will be left undealt with. Success won't happen overnight and so does ending the Cavs' struggles. The Cavs will need to make sure that Tyronn Lue's coaching has been the source of their problems before they could terminate his contract because whether the Cavs will admit it or not, Tyronn Lue has done an amazing job of guiding the Cavs since taking over from David Blatt.Coach Kye has even guided the Cavs when they took down the empire of the Golden State Warriors in the Finals, 3-1.


Conclusion

Assuming that the Cavs pull the trigger on Tyronn Lue, who should they hire to replace him? The best choice would be David Fizdale who was fired by the Memphis Grizzlies earlier this season. Why him? He was one of Erik Spoelstra's assistants when the Miami Heat had LeBron James so his familiarity with LeBron's game can work the wonders for the Cavs. 

But at the end of the day, it will be all up to LeBron James himself. And to the Cavs' front office, too.
