Really sad especially the way he got them to play last season. Mike Fratello is rumored to be the favorite for the job. Best wishes to Hubie and his family.

Damn. Well, I know he wouldn't have coached past this season anyway. Just sad he couldn't finish out the year.

I'd like to see Fratello come on board, but wasn't he the coach when the Cavs played that boring style of play? Maybe he'll teach the Grizz to play some D.
whatever

He did indeed coach the Cavs and had the most vicious D west of New York at the time. However, that's all he had going for him with the Cavs. They had zero star power, so their only hope to win games was to slllloooooooooow the game down and play intense, suffocating defense.

(I give thanks nightly for Mr. James and the Cavaliers renaissance. Ahhhhhhh... refreshing. )
