If all these reports are true it almost seems like Dan Gilbert wants LeBron to leave just to prove to people the Cavs can win without him.
If by chance that happened Gilbert would get all the credit.
Here is his latest potential move to drive LeBron away via Bleacher Report.
LeBron wants to be in charge of everything, which is what puts him at odds with Dan,” one source said. “Dan wants to be in charge of everything.”
The belief is that Gilbert, having reasserted control after chasing out Griffin, will rebuff James’ request for a no-trade clause, or any other measures that give him leverage. And that will be enough to drive James away.
“Dan Gilbert’s not going to do what it takes to keep him,” the same source predicted. “Not a chance in hell he’s going to give him a no-trade clause, or let him dictate contract terms.”
This would indeed be a deal breaker in my opinion, so we will see what happens.
