Cavaliers, LeBron James react to firing of coach Tyronn Lue

The news of the Cavaliers firing Tyronn Lue came as a surprise early into the 2018-19 season as Cleveland got off to an 0-6 start — and apparently many of the players are upset by the situation. 

According to The Athletic, citing unidentified sources: “The players are ‘pissed.’ Lue’s a player’s coach who is partial to veterans, and his partiality toward them may have played a role in his dismissal.”

Cavs’ players are ‘pissed’ over Lue’s firing, sources tell me. You’re seeing it play out on social media.

Though the players aren’t happy with Cleveland’s decision, several took to social media to express their gratitude for the 41-year-old coach — including former Cavaliers great LeBron James.

Take a look at some of the reactions: 

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 ??

You helped me see the big picture. Life changing experiences and teaching points. Nothing but love and admiration. Know we will work towards something greater together again. THANK YOU. ?
