Because he did a terrible job in Cleveland, embarrassing himself multiple times including the aforementioned Chris Webber-esque timeout attempt, trying to have Lebron be the inbounder with 1 second left in a playoff game, etc.

Seems like the rest of the NBA saw the same thing. Since rather than getting another shot as a head coach or even a top assistant, he's coaching guys who ride a camel to work.

When is the last time the Cavs had a real coach? For the last 15 years, they were either yes men (Mike Brown) or gap fillers (Byron Scott).

It's so preposterous to distill a multi-year coaching job down to one timeout call. Those kinds of things don't even amount to one tenth of a percent of what a coach does for a team

That was one example of his incompetence, never said it was the sole reason. Though it's certainly one of the more laughable moments by a coach in recent NBA history.

Still waiting to hear your theory on why no NBA team has given a shot to Blatt if he's a good coach? Or does he just prefer coaching games played in front of 70 people?

I find it really funny that some of the CBS national honks are still acting as if the Cavs recent trade moves will offer zero encouragement for LeBron to stay. They act as if the only move is "stars now", or he's gone. It's probably a fine base that they have here now. Packaging George Hill or TT (if he pulls his head out of his azz) or even Love in a trade off-season could do quite a lot.

I really don't see the man wanting to leave now. We have at least a strong beginning at trading runs with the Warriors.

Ty Lue getting some post-game love from the national guys for classily weathering the storm and for a successful beginning at integrating the new faces.

Still think he stays with this sh1t roster and no real hopes of improving it? He has said he will retire in Cleveland, however that doesnt mean he stays their for the rest of his career.

The 8th pick is nothing to get excited about imo

I would like to see him either sign a multiple year deal (3 or 4 years) or leave ... one of the problems when LeBron has been in Cleveland is that they are constantly making short term deals ... deals that are good in the short term, but hurt them in the long term ... to me this is why the Cavs seem to get worse the longer LeBron is here ... I would then take a long term approach to the next 3 to 4 years ... sounds crazy but it would be best for the organization.

My bet is LeBron pulls a Chris Paul ... re-ups with the Cavs and forces a trade to a contender ... this would allow him to get the most money and still play for the team of his choice.

That wouldn't make sense for Lebron basketball wise. He would have to gut the new team for the trade. Thus leaving him with scrapes outside one other player - just like it is in Cleveland right now.

Houston was one of the few incredibly deep teams. Obvious exception to the rule. Look at what happened to New York when they traded for Melo.

First of all, Chris Paul told LAC he wasn't coming back. When word got out the Rockets were interested, the Clippers signed him and traded him in order to get players back instead of letting him walk. CP got to go where he wanted and Houston was able to shed enough cap space (via the trade) in order to get him. Can't see LeBron doing anything like that with Cleveland - he either re-signs or walks.

Not a Cavs fan in any way, shape or form. Not a LeBron fan. I do respect his game. We may never see another professional athlete in a team game deliver like LeBron has. He was designated as a great before he even got out of high school, and he's fulfilled those lofty goals and then some. He's caused the NBA to make some rules modifications, some for the good, some not so much.

While I was completely fine with how he left Cleveland the first time - certainly his prerogative - the way it went down was not good. Things had worked out in Miami, he won a couple of titles, and it worked out that he could come back to Cleveland and for the most part, the city and fan base opened their arms once again to him.

But for him to ever leave again...I just really would be highly disappointed in him. By in large and what we know, he seems like a great person, husband and father. Sure, he's got some quirky personality characteristics and he seems to fan the flames to controversy. I just can't image that coming back, winning that elusive title for the city, he would ever break Cleveland's hearts again.

To your last point...

It really amazes me how level headed he is considering he was told he was great ever since he was a kid. Amazing how we havent heard any stories of him being a complete jackazz like so many other players/child stars. He hasnt had a problem with the law and really does embrace being a role model.

Not a big LeBron fan but I am a fan of him as a person. For every LeBron there are 20 Johnny Footballs who arent well adjusted humans. Being told how great you are at such a young age certainly can have a negative effect on people.
