Two league sources say the Cavaliers will announce that Mike Brown has been fired today


Will the rest of the team be around to piss on the ashes?

Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Gilbert came out and basically said they will have a review process. Everyone is under review, answers and moves will be made within 7-10 days, will not be a long processs.

Reiterated that the organization is built to be the most attractve option to ANY player.

That spending money makes money. An empty arena costs more then having one 20 million dollar swing but signing or cutting a player.

Feels most sorry for the Cleveland Fans. The goal is to win a championship, period.

Talk of the team moving or changing the culture once LeBron is gone is absurd, (<-Hello TCF ledgers...) and something no one in the ownership group ever thought of.

His goal and the organizations goal is to win a championship.

Love Gilbert. Great presser. You could tell that he wasn't happy, but he kept it professional. Dude wants to win and isn't worried about spending money. I needed a little reassurance from him, but I feel better. Thanks Dan.

Gilbert, throughout the years he has owned the team, has always communicated the fact he builds his organization to attract the best talent. The fact he provides the players with every creature comfort is evidence. I have faith this will continue in the face of a possible LeBron defection.

Love the fact he said moving the team is absurd, like he reads my posts...

Gilbert must play like some smooth jazz to be able to calm you down by calling a presser to announce that he will be reviewing things. Can I have my 20 minutes back?

I agree, and pointed that out when Lead and others were going nuclear, but this is a Gilbert philosophy. His companies all run in this fashion, and he uses all the best practices to keep key employees and keep them happy. This isn't just some random mid market baseball team owner or Donald Sterling turn a profit every year...

The guy has done it, is doing it, and has all along said that he will continue doing it that way.

And, I'd like to point out that there's nothing wrong with it. It's good business. Good for Cleveland and good for the Cavs.

Totally missed the Ferry presser, but seeing that it is only like 15 minutes after 4pm, I am guessing he didn't say much. Yeah, Mother, that is what gives me a slight positive attitude towards the whole situation. Considering some where point to Stepien right away and moving to Seattle in the short term...
