It's been a long time coming, but it looks like Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has finally come to his senses.
After a dreadful start to the NBA season in their second stint without LeBron James, the Cavs have reportedly decided to fire head coach Tyronn Lue.
The first NBA head coach speculated to be on the hot seat is already done, with more changes coming in Cleveland.
Larry Drew will be in the interim boss.

It's tough for the Cavs and their new-look roster without LeBron, but it's really unacceptable in any sport to start 0-6. And it's not like Cleveland was outmatched in every game -- they faced the Hawks and Nets in their start to the year.
But when you're getting annihilated on defense and your offense can't score a timely bucket or piece together any sort of run, someone has to be held responsible.

Lue recently said that a team's culture is not defined by wins and losses. Perhaps bad timing there, coach. While that may be true, starting 0-6 certainly defines a team's culture especially considering this is what everyone expected after LeBron's departure.
