• Cavs worry about player response to Blatt


    NEW YORK: Cleveland Cavaliers bosses are questioning first-year NBA coach David Blatt’s ability to motivate players, ESPN reported on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). Citing unnamed league sources, the US-based sports telecaster’s website reported that there is concern about how much players are listening to Blatt, a 55-year-old American who guided Russia to 2012 Olympic bronze and Maccabi Tel Aviv to a Euroleague crown before being hired by the Cavaliers last June. Blatt arrived weeks before four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James left Miami to return to his home region club in the quest of bringing a major sports crown to Cleveland, which has not had such a champion in half a century.
