Even David Blatt throws shade during Cavs’ dark times

Former Cavaliers coach David Blatt took an opportunity to have a moment of levity at the expense of his former team Sunday.

How bad has it gotten for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were drubbed in front of their home fans an a national-television audience by the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday, 148-124, at Quicken Loans Arena?

Well, so bad even former coach David Blatt piled on.

Blatt, who was fired by former Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin and replaced by assistant coach Tyronn Lue in January 2016 as his team stood atop the Eastern Conference at 30-11 and had taken Cleveland to the NBA Finals in 2015, was the head coach of Darrussafaka in the Turkish All-Star Game on Sunday.

“I hope we don’t give up as many points as the Cavaliers gave up last night,” he said during a pregame interview, then breaking into a smile.


Here’s a video of the pregame conversation (you’ll have to endure the voiceover, but Blatt’s comment can be clearly heard).

Of course, Blatt’s shade had disappeared by the end of the game.

His team lost, 151-142.
