LeBron James has taken to social media to react to the Cleveland Cavaliers' decision to fire head coach Tyronn Lue six games into the NBA's 2018-19 regular season.

Several Cavaliers players have taken to Instagram to thank Lue for everything he did for them and the franchise. Reports suggest that many of the Cavs' players are "pissed" at the franchise's decision to fire him.

LeBron posted a similar message on social media.

"T Lue thanks for the memories and more importantly our partnership bringing a (championship) to that deserved city/fan base. U know how to find me," he wrote.

LeBron's former teammate, Kevin Love, posted a similar message on Instagram: "You helped me see the big picture. Life changing experiences and teaching points. Nothing but love and admiration. Know we will work towards something greater together again. THANK YOU," he wrote.

So, too, did Tristan Thompson:

"Thank you for always believing in me and being the great leader that you are. 3 straight finals appearances in your first 3 years as a head coach is something special. THANK YOU COACH!"

The Cavs are reportedly promoting assistant coach Larry Drew into the interim head coach role. Cleveland has also reportedly fired assistant coach Damon Jones.
