Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert minced no words and pulled no punches after LeBron James decided to be the newest member of the Miami Heat. In an open letter, to his fans, he simply went off...
Among Gilbert's statements:
"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."
In a later interview with the AP, Gilbert claims his star/former star/former son of Ohio quit. This would be the game, in particular, that Gilbert is referring to where he feels James mailed it in...
Game 5 of the Celtics Series- the 32-point loss at home.
The HQ thinks we're not done, yet...
