LeBron James returned to Cleveland this season in the hopes of leading the Cavaliers to the franchise's first NBA title. Despite playing under the direction of first-time NBA head coach David Blatt, James was often seen doing a fair amount of coaching.

LeBron repeatedly bypassed Blatt to make in-game decisions as he saw fit, including Sunday night's game-winning conference semifinals buzzer-beater, which, James said in a postgame interview, was drawn up by Blatt to have him inbound the ball instead of shoot it himself. 

With Blatt looking more and more like a figurehead in the Cavaliers organization, what will become of his fate in Cleveland? What do James' comments after the game tell us about Blatt's status with the Cavaliers?

Bleacher Report's Howard Beck explores the tension between James and Blatt and deciphers what the future will likely hold for the rookie head coach.
