Cavaliers Owner Goes Off The Deep End

This “love letter” was released by the Cleveland Cavaliers owner shortly after Lebron James announced his decision to play for the Miami Heat and essentially send the state of Ohio back to the basketball stone age.  Here is what the ill-tempered majority owner had to say to fans, players and Lebron James:

“Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:


You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day….

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue”
–          End of Letter –

Wow!  That was awkward.  I have to thoroughly applaud these bold statements released by Mr. Gilbert, but at the same time some of those comments he made also have me questioning his sobriety.  After all, we all now realize that the self-centered, egotistical narcissist known as Lebron James only cares about himself, but can Dan Gilbert honestly think he will win a championship before the Heat do?  I mean, let’s look at the roster he currently has assembled and it’s hard to even imagine them getting double-digit wins in the forseeable future.  I’m still perplexed on why owner Dan Gilbert was so infuriated once Lebron James made his decision to play in South Beach, unless Bron Bron led the Cavaliers to believe he was resigning with his hometown team and at the last-minute pulled a fast one on them.  As Spike Lee so eloquently put it, “This is free-agency” and I have to agree that Gilbert and the Cavaliers had to have known that there was always a substantial chance Lebron wouldn’t be returning.  I can’t wait until Lebron James and the Miami Heat take on the Cleveland Cavaliers this upcoming season…….let the fireworks begin.
