"I am very grateful for the dedication, sacrifice, and support of all the players on our team, the tremendous coaches I worked with and of course, our incredible fans," Lue said in a statement to The Undefeated. "Lastly, deep thanks to Dan Gilbert, David Griffin and Koby Altman for the opportunity over the last three years and I only wish the organization success moving forward."
"It was great for us," said Lue, who rested Love and started Iman Shumpert in James' usual spot at small forward. "The guys bought into playing that way, that style of basketball. LeBron did a great job just spreading the floor, running and setting picks. And when he gets the rebound and takes it off the glass, it's tough for teams to get back and get matched."
