Granted - it's true that he got thrown into an unpredictable, challenging situation. He was brought to Cleveland to coach the Cavs prior to The Return materializing. Asking a rookie coach with no NBA experience to manage this team is a tall order, so it's expected that he would mistakes - and he's made plenty of mistakes. My main issue with him is that he doesn't seem to understand that he's a rookie coach, perhaps a bit too proud. Yes, he's got great experience abroad, but it's not the same as the NBA game. I'm not sure he really thinks that he has a lot to learn.
Unfortunately, the Cavs are in win-now mode, so that can't really wait for Blatt to get the experience he needs to shine in the biggest moments against elite coaches.
