Cleveland should fire Mike Brown

When i heard a few people say that last year..I thought they were Crazy...But after watching the Cavs blow a 14 point lead in the 1st half against Boston on opening night...Maybe they have a point.. He seems clueless when it comes to players rotations and matchups...PLAYING SHAQ & Z together against the more athletic Celtic frontline was a bad idea..They couldn't stop Garnett & Wallace from making outside shots..And once Wallace gets open behind the arc he has 1 of the quickest releases in the league..Van Gundy outcoached him during the conference finals..Brown refused to force Orlando to adapt to Cleveland strengths...Why didn't he use all his reserve big men to foul Howard..And slow down the tempo of the game...He should've let Hickson play more minutes...to help guard Lewis and Hedo..Hickson was inexperienced and wasn't going to score much..But they could've really used his athletic abilty against
The Magic....Brown could've move Lebron to the 4 and went small..That would've forced Howard to work work on the defensive end..Last nite against Chicago..With 37 seconds left..they had the ball and down by 1..He should've brought shaq back in the game..that would've given them a chance to score inside..Or allowed a double team..that would've left West or Williams open..Brown let em Down once again...Forcing Coach Lebron to create a play..But Chicago stopped lebron from driving to the basket by clogging the lanes...Forcing him to pass the ball to Varejao...Who as expected missed a 15 footer.. Brown is a wonderful defensive coach...He help Lebron go from lousy defender to 1st team defender..Maybe he should hire someone to run his offense...Not all is Brown's fault..GM Ferry has to get this team a tall athletic defensive minded poward forward,a backup point guard and a dominate bench scorer..Someone ala Ben Gordon or Jason Terry...When Lebron's out of the game..The Cavs look lost....

I agree

I think they should fire him he is not an elite coach, lebron is the coach of that team they dont really run plays they play good defense but as for offense they look real bad out there if lebron is not on the floor they are not scoring consisteltly. They blew that lead and the celtics never looked back and coach brown really didnt do anything that would allow them to win the game in the end they had shaq on KG in the 4th quarter I thought that was crazy.

Remarkably Shaq did an ok

Remarkably Shaq did an ok job guarding Garnett...KG made an unbelievable turn around shot With Shaq all over him..1 moment in the 2nd half Shaq fouled KG really hard and knocked him to the floor...He can handle Garnett while he's in the post..But can't guard him on the perimeter..KG is too versatile,has a good outside..Shaq has trouble with him in pick & rolls...Like i stated before Coach Brown does a poor job of coaching offense..Lebron knows this, thats why he has the ball and tries to start the offense..That'll work sometimes ...But not very often against a good defensive team like Boston...When Lebron sometimes start the offense..It gives other teams time to set up..And the other Cleveland players are just standing around watching Lebron..Last night they failed to get the ball inside to Shaq...They really need an athletic big man..Hickson could be that guy..But Brown doesn't seem to trust him...Another problem is Mo Williams he's not an elite point guard..For a championship team..He disappears in big games....

he doesnt know how to use

he doesnt know how to use lebron, they need a great coach to truely get the most out of lebron. all they do right now is have lebron create for himself and for his teammates and tough defense cant win games if you can only score when lebron is on the court. he is gonna wear down if he doesnt have any help

I agree with rudeboy that MO

I agree with rudeboy that MO Williams is not an elite point guard. in the finals last year he was pathetic and couldnt make a shot. the fact that he got on an all star team is a tragedy. rondo is 10 times better than him. honestly i don't know why they got shaq. Big Z was doing ok at centre and now they have brought shaq in and big z cant make a shot. recently wherever shaq goes, defeat goes. ask steve kerr...
