David Blatt to get an NBA championship ring

David Blatt led Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals in his first season and nearly became the first coach to win the EuroLeague title and NBA crown in back-to-back seasons.

Darussafaka Dogus coach David Blatt has accepted the offer of an NBA championship ring by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Blatt led the Cavaliers to a 30-11 record last season before he was strangely sacked to be replaced by Tyronn Lue, who guided Cleveland to their first title in 52 years.

The organisation has recognised Blatt’s contribution.
