Bowen: Blatt's Had a 'Tough First Year'

Interviews-wqam

Despite riding a 3-2 series lead over the Bulls, Cavs coach David Blatt has been getting slaughtered this week over two near mistakes that could've cost the Cavs Game 4.

ESPN's Bruce Bowen joined the Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM to talk about a 'tough first year' for the rookie NBA head coach.

"That's why I say he's had a tough first year," Bowen said, "because he's dealing with the best player in the game in LeBron and now the media scrutiny that this team receives because LeBron James wherever he is it's going to be a media circus. So it's tough for a guy like that to come in and have to perform but you start to realize that okay, I wish he had an opportunity to sit on the sidelines and actually think about the things you might say because he hasn't had the experience here. "
