Sinai Says: With Finals looming, Cavs coach Blatt finally getting some credit

Over the past year, David Blatt has gone from being “just” another successful basketball coach to one of the most famous people in Israel.

The dramatic Euroleague triumph with Maccabi Tel Aviv last spring, followed by his move to coach the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers, have transformed the Boston native who relocated to Israel over 30 years ago into a Holy Land household name, including in homes who scarcely follow sports.

Such has been the magnitude of the change that advertising campaigns and phone calls from the prime minister have become somewhat routine for Blatt these days.
