Brown reintroduced

Three years later, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert owned up to a monumental mistake. He’s trying to correct it. Mike Brown gave him a second chance. Conceding publicly for the first time that he should have never fired Brown as Cleveland’s coach during the turbulent summer of 2010, Gilbert said Wednesday he’s thrilled to be able to rehire the most successful coach in franchise history. . “Yeah, it was a mistake. Sure it was a mistake,” Gilbert said of his choice to sack Brown. “We have the benefit of hindsight right now, and in hindsight it was a mistake. … Maybe he’s meant to be here.” Brown was reintroduced by the Cavs at their training facility following a lightning-fast second courtship with the Cavs he described as “surreal.” – Associated Press
