Tyronn Lue Told LeBron James to ‘Shut The F*ck Up’ During Huddle
This would be huge, if true.
What former coach David Blatt couldn’t and wouldn’t do, current Cavs coach Tyronn Lue reportedly is doing according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com.
“Blatt unwittingly ceded control — and demoralized the rest of the team. By not being comfortable enough to rein in James, the dynamic of the team became one of LeBron and then everybody else.
“They felt they were doing this for LeBron,” the person familiar with the internal workings of the team said, “instead of with LeBron.”
Lue changed that the moment he first told James in a huddle, “Shut the [expletive up]. I got this,” according to a person who heard the exchange — and a few others like it.”
LeBron basically has been the GM, Co-Owner, & coach of the Cavaliers since he decided to return back to his hometown team, so Lue stepping up to him would get him a bunch of Respect in the locker room.
