The Cleveland Cavaliers announced today that Tyronn Lue is taking a leave of absence due to health issues. This coming in the midst of a pretty disappointing season for the Cavs.
There is obviously some speculation in the sports world as to why he’s taking a leave. I truly believe he has health issues. He simply looks unhealthy. Lue also said he hasn’t been able to sleep due to his illness.
On the other side of the debate, people believe Lebron James is strong arming him out of Cleveland. That could be, but I seriously doubt it. Lebron loves Lue, he wanted him in Cleveland. Lue has done a decent job managing such big egos, and is a decent head coach, even though most of his accomplishments can be attributed to having the best player on the planet on his team.
Prayers out to Tyronn Lue. Hopefully he gets healthy in time for the playoffs. Cleveland needs a good run to make King James want to stay there next season.
