Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue praised the move, saying that the Akron-based tire company “is a great thing” for the team.
And in his typical humorous fashion, Lue added that the team should send him some of the extra money from the partnership. Starting at 3:00:
Lue: Being sponsored by Goodyear, which I heard is a great thing. An Akron-based company who I’ve always seen growing up being a Cardinal fan, watching baseball and football—you always see Goodyear.
They’re always affiliated with all sports. For us, I think it’s a good thing.
What would you like the organization to do with that extra money?
Lue: Give it to me. [Laughs]
