Dan Gilbert being upset is an understatement when Lebron left the Cavs to go join the Heat for a chance at winning a championship. From that day, 3 years and 364 days ago, Gilbert left a note on the Cavs website that read:
“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE”
“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.”
Since yesterday, it has been removed. There are multiple reports that Lebron’s childhood friend turned agent, Rich Paul, is actually pushing for the King to return to his original throne. Lebron has yet to make any decision concerning his free agency and within the coming days, Pat Riley and Eric Spolestra, are said to have a date with Lebron to make their final pitch.
