Cleveland 2021: Luke Walton Fired; Mike Brown Appointed as Interim Coach for Cavaliers' Stretch Run 

In shocking news, Cavs head coach Luke Walton has been fired. Though Walton led the team to two consecutive NBA finals, and though the Cavs currently own the Eastern Conference's best record in 2020-2021, Cavs' owner Dan Gilbert released an open letter Tuesday that began, "Do you like rockets? Yes? Do you like rocket poop? No? Neither do I, and Walton was rocket poop." Former Head Coach Mike Brown has been appointed, on an interim basis, for the remainder of the 2021 season. That's also a surprise, given that when Walton considered taking a year off to "reconnect with the earth" last year, assistant coaches Ira Newble and Anderson Varejao were thought to be next in line.
