The big sporting news over the past day is the firing of David Blatt as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, despite their impressive win-loss record under him, as well as getting to the NBA playoffs last season.
Previously Maccabi Tel Aviv’s head coach, David is a dual Israeli-American citizen. So you can imagine some of the reactions to the announcement of his firing.
Heck, no need to imagine. Here they are.
David Blatt was fired? Good. Fuck that Zionist peace of shit. Didn't think he was a good coach either.
