Yesterday saw Mike Brown’s second tenure as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers come to an end for the second time in five years which means another new era is beginning in Cavs history. But while the move has been questioned by some, it’s apparently getting the support of Kyrie Irving.
Cleveland’s biggest star — sorry, Johnny Football — has supported the firing of his head coach which means he will likely be consulted when it comes to who is hired next to replace him.
Kyrie Irving “in complete support of” #Cavs‘ moves today, I’m told.

There were rumors all season long about Irving not being happy in Cleveland and wanting to leave as soon as he can. With Brown gone — a guy who was being blamed for the unrest in the locker room — fans are hoping that Irving is satisfied and will remain with the team.
It’s unclear who the Cavaliers will get to replace Brown, but Irving will probably have a say in the matter and it seems that a splashy name may be needed to fix things in Cleveland.
