Byron Scott was fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday and the veteran coach believes he was not given a fair chance to turn the situation around.

"I'm disappointed, more than anything,'' Scott said in a telephone interview. "I don't think I got a fair shake.''

Scott will pick up things from his Cavaliers office before returning home to California on Saturday.

"I'll land on my feet,'' Scott said.

"I'm a straight shooter.''
