"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- David Blatt came along at just the right time for Tamir Goodman.

"He gave me a shot,'' Goodman said of Blatt, the heralded coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv who resigned that position on Thursday and will interview for the Cavaliers head coaching position next week. "For that, I will be forever grateful.''

Goodman, 32, was dubbed "The Jewish Jordan'' as a young basketball phenom growing up in Baltimore in the 1990s. But his college basketball career was cut short after a serious conflict with coach Mike Hunt at Towson University during his sophomore year in 2001-02." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
