There are real issues in Cleveland.
The roster lacks good defenders. Guys are not hustling consistently. Kevin Love clearly is not comfortable in the offense. Coach David Blatt can’t seem to motivate the troops and LeBron isn’t doing it either.
Then LeBron came out Monday with what can at best be called a tepid endorsement of Blatt.
In the latest PBT Extra Jenna Corrado and I talk about the problems in Cleveland — they are 5-5 in their last 10 with the 28th ranked defense in that stretch — and what they can do about it.
Is Blatt’s job in danger? Frankly, that’s up to LeBron. He has the power in that relationship and in that organization.
