Default Dan Gilbert is a hypocrite- How does he justify helping Nets?

Note: This is not an anti Nets topic (in no way should Net fans apologize for ripping Orlando off) nor an anti Cav topic (it's not a fans fault their owners are stupid, trust me - i know). This is about Dan Gilbert.

Dan Gilbert not only railed against the Lebron trade (for betraying him, blah blah) but also the fairness of it, the fact stars were teaming up, the fact it was bad for small markets, etc.

This also came out in his diatribe against the Chris Paul trade, which he again cited issues of fairness, etc.

Well guess what? Dan Gilbert is going to help the Nets facilitate bringing their two stars together in Brooklyn, and helping Dwight Howard make a fellow small market owner take it up the ass on his way out of town.

How exactly can he justify this? How much of a hypocrite is he? And note: if this in someway is a plan to hurt Lebron's chances, he is even stupider than i thought. Because he's putting up a huge roadblock to his own team, a team i'm assuming he'd like to contend at some point.

Dan Gilbert is a hypocrite. We already knew he was a bitter angry old man, i had no idea he had no integrity either. He can't even hold to his own (albeit misguided) principles.

Dear Dan - your job is to help Cleveland win, nothing else. Enjoy Humphries, the Nets beating your ass, Miami still beating your ass, and your high draft pick from last year not playing or developing this year as he sits on his ass. Oh, also enjoy Kylie Irving leaving in a few years because Cleveland can't compete with two juggernauts in the East instead of one.

Let's all write "scathing rebuke in comic sans" to Dan Gilbert.

Just that he would be participating is hypocritical. Did you read what he wrote or hear what he said?

He'd be the first owner to take a bad deal on purpose to screw an opposing player by making a team BETTER, not worse.

He'll say that he proclaims that Cleveland will win a championship before this self proclaimed "Superman" and then he'll write a letter to the commish saying that small market teams should never be allowed again to be the third team in trades

Cavs won't be getting raped and we'll be getting better. We not trading anything worthy and will be getting Humphries and picks if the rumor is true. I'm glad you think Dan Gilbert is our gm though

We all know how Lebron left Cleveland was ****ed up. (And i think it was more him being naive and poorly represented than malicious. He loves Cleveland.) But Gilbert's venom afterwards was a bit misguided and over the top. I understood it at the time, but it needed to be a 1 time thing. That he rallied so hard against the Laker/Paul trade but would help this?

He's a clown.

The Owner is the one accepting trades.

He's your owner, he has to sign off on any expenditure your team makes. Any trade. Reality check, you think your GM makes trades and such and if the owner didn't like it, it would happen?

Yeah, the bitch had the chance to consecutively draft highly talented kids like Lebron AND then, Kyrie. Dude, has his team already back in the po. And yet he continues to be a petty little child.

I had heard he was trying to mend fences with Lebron in case Lebron won another title or two and decided, while he was young enough to do CLEVELAND II - UNFINISHED BUSINESS. Guess not.
