LeBron Would Support Hiring Of Izzo

LeBron James doesn’t want to be involved and the Cavaliers aren’t asking his opinion, allegedly, but that hasn’t stopped word from leaking that James would ‘100% Endorse’ Tom Izzo as Cavaliers Head Coach -

According to a high-level source, James would endorse the Cavs’ hiring Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said last week that James is not involved in the search for a replacement for Mike Brown, but sources have indicated James approves of the highly-respected Izzo. James also said in an interview with Larry King that he doesn’t want to be heavily involved with selecting his next coach.

But James “100 percent” would endorse Izzo’s hiring, the source said.

As Cavaliers blog Fear The Sword points out, this all might be LeBron’s way to let Izzo know it would be ok – perhaps even a good idea – to take the Cavaliers job.,
