LeBron James sure looked like he was the Cavs head coach during loss

Tyronn Lue got a lot of input from LeBron James on Tuesday.

LeBron James took Tuesday night off to rest during the Cavaliers’ 106-100 loss to the Houston Rockets. The Cavs blew a 20-point lead as Cleveland fell to 4-13 over the past two seasons when LeBron doesn’t play.

But even though he wasn’t on the floor, LeBron was in the middle of the action on the sidelines. A couple of times it looked like he was doing more coaching than head coach Tyronn Lue.


But this is nothing new for LeBron. He used to embarrass his former head coach, David Blatt, on a number of occasions.

Here’s LeBron pushing Blatt in the middle of a game.

And then LeBron revealed to the media that he overruled Blatt on his playoff game-winning shot against the Bulls last season.

Have fun, Tyronn.
