Cleveland Cavaliers may lose Coach Tyronn Lue
Earlier in March, Coach Tyronn Lue had to stay in the locker room for the second half of his Cleveland Cavaliers' game against the Chicago Bulls with some "illness" issues. Not many details of his condition were disclosed at the time.
You could see it on his countenance when he left the United Center that Saturday night. This was a man who had to do exactly what he did that Monday - take a break from his coaching duties to get what is most important straight, his health.
The Cavaliers released a statement about the 40-year-old coach making the decision to temporarily step away from it all. “I have had chest pains and other troubling symptoms, compounded by a loss of sleep, throughout the year,” he said in the statement. “Despite a battery of tests, there have been no conclusions as to what the exact issue is.”
The team had started this year not scoring well. It is thought that the stress of having to win has been a bit too much for the coach. Then, there is a win. Now the stress does not go away, it is simply substituted by the urge to keep winning.
Stress also comes from the lofty expectations that the Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are facing by NBA standards as they are trying to line up for a fourth consecutive Finals clash. So the pressure is there and at this time, it has taken a toll on Lue's health.
Now, the Cavaliers could lose their coach. But Lue is coaching with the belief that his staying with the Cavaliers will depend on the success of their season. This will largely determine if he re-signs with the team or goes to another team as a free agent.
