We changed gears here a tough day in Cleveland yesterday yes that the fans in Cleveland have a lot to be excited about because they're cavalier should be as good as ever it was a nice next race com offseason nothing really going on back. She really should know slider and refute here that's exactly right here is Tyler the head coach of the cavaliers tied. I anything happened since last year's finals again as evidence that I haven't heard much about your team everything that all right. Yeah everything being good to curb the. All kidding aside what when you are the coach and there is this kind of stuff and and and everything with carrier ring that just blew up and became such an enormous spectacle and all the questions and all of that. You're the coach what what is your role in all of that and what was it like for you as all of that was swirling around your team during the summer. Well a situation where it off front office handles you know. You never want to lose you know a great feel like Harry. And you know it was tough but you know under the circumstances those problems being diligent. And I quote we all you know apparently wanna if you don't want an out. He's not I don't think it could have been a bit of trade if you don't give me gallery obvious Thomas whose. You don't get him he knows and giving people getting together so Darren. And I can defend you know clearly want to for how we we had very slowly add Jeff Greenfield gay child a role. So we did you know we get a lot of guys but. To do to two straight you know carried Boston to get past that we got with the clearly gotten in the Brooklyn okay I'm all for you could get anything any better guys that we Dalia. So before logs I wanna get into the players that you've got produced just one more on on the jury did you talk to carry it all before this trade any kind of conversation at all about what was coming out not didn't. OK I just I wanted to see if you did or not now players coming in so what a player like a read a book are rose comes and and it Dwyane Wade comes and guys who've been released for awhile especially guy like Twain wait. Take us into the conversation that you have been with these guys on what their role guys that are used to being stars and what their roles are gonna be on these teams. Wolf you know that the great thing about you know Jeff Green and Derrick Rose in crowded field. He the way they came it would no ego and stuff that you need when you wanna try to win a championship. You have to understand going to be about sacrifices. You know. People don't understand because you know apparently gone but. You know Dave rose I do think he's going to be carried back you know that's how much you want to win an additional U who use the person of the players. To be a former MVP. And you know covered in Cleveland just to try to win and give back but then have a carry leptin you know acquired they you know who's not going to start the season. Tom Knight becomes daughters so you know that it certainly a lot of value right there and he has no ego Hamid come into work every day I mean great to be around. Because I mean if I mean did great and have a player of that caliber who's healthy. On the PC into a preceding games like he's doing great. No addition of the ways another guy who food and there's been in the trenches. They'll would take to win a championship. And you know he's he can beat you pass the basketball can post up we get to the basket. So we don't got a lot of additions and you know will look different from last year. Because you know we have guys now we have found few doubt that we've added that can dribble pass and she can make plays so. And have cigar room were a little different. Before some of the guys that are a little older or have gone through injuries all this mandates in the offseason about rested players in this and that you are going to have to manage minutes are you're not I mean they're there is that to deal with but. Both of coal for you guys is to win a championship self how was that come into play were kind of knowing what you may have to do during the regular season. Was all about feel the players and how they feel and we have a great medical staff here who who won't understand the players today. Marquee players a lot so. Kind kind of go off what they say and how they feel about the situation. To kind of go from there but you know with the new rules inflation over the do our best about battles rules. And you don't necessarily done a great job of they're trying to make sure the fans. Do what they pay for. Try to make sure you know TV TV games there are great that is supposed to be so. You're not taking away the four of five nights in China cut back on the back to back on the hood and a great job. Hi Lou head coach of the cavaliers well this. They play at the magic tomorrow night you'll see that game 7 o'clock eastern time. Their pre season finale on ESPN NN. The opener the much anticipated opener which right away boom here comes carrier ring back to Cleveland next Tuesday night that'll be on TNT. An hour hearing about LeBron so what can you tell us about the bronze ankle and and his situation obviously missing the rest of the pre season is one thing. If he's not ready for that huge first game against tirade that would be something else entirely callously. Even little mag yesterday we came in store and wasn't able to practice but I mean he's going to be day to day. Am just trying to get it right for the first game itself you know all of Ron he's definitely was one of those staffers gangs so. He's gonna do everything in his power to get back out on the floor and so you know we just well where would have these this these days off between before our first game. You know we had done Bret Stephens on yesterday we were talking about how he would manage that from his side because there is that emotional return. Of carrier ring to Cleveland and and we have a sense of what the building will be like. I got to Cleveland are sitting next to me here's a guy I have a good sense of what that building will be like for him how about for your side you have him come back. This quickly after everything that happened this summer do you expect that to be a night that is a little different from other games. As far as work well just as far as the emotion of pure. Players I mean there has been a lot of thought that LeBron was hurt by what happened with Carrie I'm sure a lot of the other players on the team all have different feelings about. He came in particular and he's not coming back in February come back the very first game. Of the season what what is your expectation for his return. Quote you know military you know is going to be up for the challenge. Are you gonna be up for the challenge to his. You know official bond that we had you know the last few years if you don't win the championship and they get to the NBA finals three years you know also when you move achieve key piece of that you know is tough but I mean. You don't the way it happens you know that's that this guy was that what about all of this just. No the way it happened just. So I mean just the game alone I mean this one game even though going to be a lot of hype and you know of this surrounded you know Boston verses which had the military can look bad but I was just one game and you know they're gonna get better throughout courses either we're gonna get better so. I mean it is hard for TV I guess. I am and how I like don't wanna go back to replace him always fascinated about whether to if it's a different role for a player how they handle you expect everybody to be professional handling it. Handling it put. Kevin Love and outlook is over moving to center and how he found out he's moving to senator can yet can you go through that and how that transition will be. Will remain betrayed. You know I had Jae Crowder had to stop you know start Jake after three years before you know whatever tough matches tough matchup in the deposition. They'll give LeBron a chance to be on the backlog and have a quarterback good defense and talk conveniences. Users do things in the passing lanes and beat the hell dad because he's very Smart and he dollars and you know right spot. It has a lot of pressure on LeBron had to guard you know the best player everything when night fell. Tom Belton I think it was that and you know acquires you know do you older and you waited. You know dad did you know that our great three point shooters so to give us based on the floor. You know would be way do you own interest and have been a little hotter so. Don't partake in you know bring interest they'll eventually moving Kayla to. Pascal Russia without other guys and I think. On the Brohm may have been totally what took Jenna Barbara and a little you know players retreat. I'll be right before this season so. If something I've been talking about and you know Kevin Kevin knew whatever interest I knew that he got this far sit down talk with him about it. I'm doing get a chance to do that before I guess he's in the Broncos this kind of Barbara so. But it was all my vehicle for. I know how that was his wondered if there with the U got a call after that and say from cabinets and hey it just talk to LeBron and he he gave me a little bit information that it did you get a. Also all of I did I was going back before you know my thought process you know just you know over the course of summer after the trade to happen. That's kind of how I've visited and to go back and forth on it and then you know what you got to training camp. A bomb went off our decisions and optometrists and who was great about it it. You know he's been a big part of everything we've done it for him to be just you know. Doing really great way that I can understand that there were these spaces. I've got to think man he would you know anything you need to do coach I'm I'm here to do for yourself. It's tough having a scout talks a conversation but I'm the only great. Should be a fun year to watch it again I'll start with a bang next Tuesday night with.
