Lue won’t follow Kerr’s lead and hand his clipboard to LeBron

Tyronn Lue won't be handing his clipboard to LeBron James anytime soon, he said.

Steve Kerr caused a bit of a stir across the NBA landscape Monday night when he handed his clipboard to his players during a blowout win over the Phoenix Suns at Oracle Arena.

Hoping to jolt some energy into his Warriors squad, Kerr had his players handle most of the coaching responsibilities, starting with shootaround, reviewing film and drawing up plays during timeouts.

Don’t look, however, for Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue to follow suit.

“I wouldn’t do that,” Lue said, before the Cavaliers defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 120-112, on Tuesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

He then brought down the house, meaning a small group of reporters, with his reason, which could very well go down as his best line of the season when all is said and done.

“They already said LeBron’s coaching the team, anyway,” he said, referring to Cavaliers superstar LeBron James. “If I give him the clipboard, they’re really going to say it.”

When asked who would receive his clipboard should he opt to hand it off, he responded, “Larry Drew.” Drew, a former head coach for the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks, is the Cavaliers’ associate head coach.
