You sound fat and lonely.


What does fat sound like?
Lots of farting and burping, or a total echo in the room...oh he already said lonely.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert says LeBron James "quit" during the playoffs and should be accountable for his actions.

Agreed, the letter was great, we all think he quit, but now he's coming close to crossing the line if he hasn't already. Lot of raw emmotion running tonight, go to bed and sleep on it.

heh, Cavs Owner is a trending topic on Twitter. Though many of the comments have me laughing. One idiot @LEBRONMANIA said to Windy that he emailed David Stern about Gilbert's unacceptable behavior. Please.

So for once a Cleveland owner got pissed (rightly so) and told it like it is after his team and the city were made a complete mockery of by LeBron, and that is unacceptable? Yet what Lebron did with this entire charade is okay?

Naw fuck that, I think he has national perception on his side until tomorrow morning, so if he is going to get it out do it now and then back down from the emotion if you're called out and it matters.

This is the worst part; listening to all those assholes berate Cleveland fans for being classless and hating on LeBron and saying we should just be happy we were able to fork over our cash to him for 7 years without a title to show for it, while LBJ pulls the most egomaniacal, immature move in sports history made me want to punch my tv.

I'm sure it's mostly emotion but regardless it is actually a good move on Gilbert's part to keep the fans on his side. He knows the city is disappointed and pissed about this and what do people want when they feel betrayed, they want immediate gratification and revenge, Gilbert is saying all the right things at the moment to give disgruntled fans a reason to stick with him and say FULBJ. He's salvaging as much of the fan base as possible tonight.

@PDcavsinsider He's trying to channel fan anger into support for his team, which makes sense. Throwing down the gaunlet on title, that he may regret.



I could see that. The telling it like it is on LeBron... go for it dude. But the title thing he MAY regret saying. But hey, he's pissed and hurt, can't blame the guy.

But I agree with whomever said no one outside Cleveland seems to be as amused by this. As evidenced by Twitter. Wow.

We're in agreement, that was more meant for people saying he has/is going over the line. All I'm saying is he's has an easy fall back if this were to become a problem.

I'm Ok with him guaranteeing the titles even if it doesn't happen. He's a person like the rest of us, it is OK to be driven by emotion at times. Besides he's too wealthy to go out turfing lawns tonight.

If you believe it and try as hard as you can to accomplish it and fail, there is no dishonor in that.

This is akin to being drunk at a bar and telling some guy twice your size that you're going to kick his ass.

It might be beer balls talking, but you believe it when you say it. And you don't regret it the next day. Even after you wake up in the ER, you know that you totally intended on kicking that guy's ass, and only your intoxication prevented you from doing so.

Love the letter, gets a lot of angst out. From a business sense, proves himself to Cleveland fans.

If the Cavs start winning next year, sans LeBron, or TMLP makes some moves to boost legitimacy, they WILL have a following. Especially if they beat the Heat (preferably in a playoff series). It will be more about the TEAM then a player, and that's something that could be interesting.

Gilbert guaranteeing a title is no worse than LBJ guaranteeing one when he started.

Hopefully Gilbert delivers
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

Sadly, how I looked like that in the photo is completely manufactured. Nothing but a Special FX test case.

But I have looked like that. Don't have the photos, just the stories.

The media are going to blow this way out of proportion, but it's about one thing and one thing only: Showing Dan Gilbert's commitment to the franchise in its time of need. He's too smart of a businessman to play this off like it's no big deal. The guy embarrassed the entire sport of basketball with this charade and made a mockery out of the people of Cleveland. You can debate that point if you want, but that's what a majority of the people of Northeast Ohio and Akron area think. They were led down a path, lined the man's pockets, and then got left with nothing but a story of having seen LBJ play here.

Gilbert's enraged. And the LBJ quitting thing goes too far because it almost crosses that Mark Cuban-esque line between the game and the owners.

But, for tonight, it's what the fan base needed to hear. Gilbert will probably retract over the next few days and calm down and get off the ledge...at the same time, so will the fan base.

It's a brilliant PR move to the casual fan who only started caring about Cavs basketball when LBJ got here. It's an attempt to keep them around long enough for Gilbert to build another winning team.

Professional? Not in the slightest. But, it will achieve what it is designed to do.
