Byron Scott: "75 to 85 percent chance" Cavaliers keep LeBron

But given the choice, “do you want to coach LeBron or not?” The answer is yes. And he told Mason and Ireland on ESPN Radio in Los Angeles he has a good shot.

“If I’m going by my gut feeling I would say there is a 75 to 85 percent chance.  I feel really good about that.  In talking with (general manager) Chris (Grant) and (assistant general manager) Lance (Blanks) they feel really good about it and I’m sure Dan does as well.”

That percentage was not good enough for Tom Izzo, but he has a lot to lose – he walks on water in Lansing. He has it good. You are very careful when to roll the dice when you have it that good.

Scott, he’s an NBA lifer. He’s in for the challenge — win a title with LeBron or rebuild. Whatever.

For him, those are some good odds.
