LeBron's Cavaliers Fired David Blatt And The Internet Went Wild

It didn't take long for the MJ crying-face photoshops to appear.

LeBron James' Cleveland Cavliers fired head coach David Blatt on Friday afternoon, replacing him with assistant Tyronn Lue, who has already agreed to a multi-year deal with the team.

Since NBA Twitter is undoubtedly the most entertaining section of sports Twitter, and since the news broke on a Friday afternoon, things got pretty wild pretty fast. 

Per tradition, people photoshopped the MJ crying face on David Blatt's body.

Others joked about LeBron's role in the firing.

There were the jokes implying that LeBron was the one coaching the team anyway.

And to top it all off ... 

Never change, NBA Twitter.
