LeBron Is Overstating Ty Lue's Importance

When it was announced that Tyronn Lue would be stepping away from the Cavaliers for an extended period of time in order to focus on his health, LeBron James was quick to sing the praises of his coach. He went on to say that it is like losing "one of the best players on the team." 

Ben Maller thinks the statement is a bit absurd. Lue is a middle of the road NBA coach and everyone knows that LeBron is running that team anyway. With Lue gone, the Cavs went out and handily beat the Bucks.
