Cavs owner: Blatt was never in jeopardy

Dan Gilbert said firing coach David Blatt was never an option, even when Cleveland was mired in a 2-10 skid: "This was a guy with a long-term record of success. You have to at least give a season, maybe more than just one. I think it would have destabilized the entire franchise and it would have been bad [if I fired him]." (via Northwest Ohio Media Group)
