Did Tyronn Lue Tell LeBron James to Shut the F Up in Huddles?

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

I actually wouldn't be surprised at all if this is true. LeBron James has been shown to be a bit of a punk, at least on camera, in front of his coaches since joining the Cleveland Cavaliers. Whether it was David Blatt or Tyronn Lue, James seems to act like he's actual head coach.

It makes sense why Blatt got fired, since James never showed much respect for him. Blatt never really challenged the King, and it looks like Lue took note and took the matters into his own hands.

Per a report from CBS Sports, Lue stood up to LeBron in the huddles once and told him to "shut the fuck up."

Blatt unwittingly ceded control — and demoralized the rest of the team. By not being comfortable enough to rein in James, the dynamic of the team became one of LeBron and then everybody else.

“They felt they were doing this for LeBron,” the person familiar with the internal workings of the team said, “instead of with LeBron.”

Lue changed that the moment he first told James in a huddle, “Shut the [expletive up]. I got this,” according to a person who heard the exchange — and a few others like it.

Do you think the report is true? 

Regardless if it is true or not, the Cavs have been rolling in this year's playoffs with a 9-0 start. Things are definitely clicking between the coaches and players right now.
