WTAM is reading the letter over the air for the 2nd time now in the last 10 minutes. They're acting like Gilbert is a hero for this ridiculous letter, which it feels to me like he dictated to someone after 5 shots of hard liquor.
I'm so serious. That shit got me so fucking hyped up. I didn't even hate LeBron for going to Miami before I read this. I need to see this happen now. The Cavs need to win a championship before LeBron does. I don't think I'll get any sleep tonight.
How is it disloyal to leave a crappy franchise who was too incompetent to build a team around the best player in the league? How can you call the guy a traitor when he gave 7 years and brought more success than any other Cav? Any other player who was NOT from the area would have left after their rookie deals. But he stayed. And he tried, and failed. And you want to call him a traitor because he had the right to leave a crappy franchise and not waste the rest of his career there like KG?
Sorry Gilbert, but YOU are the traitor who can't run a team. They can't draft, they can't win, and oh my will you ever look back on Lebron's time there with envy because you aren't getting back to that level any time soon.
Wow. When I read it, I thought it was fake. If that is his real statement he is totally unprofessional and an ungrateful douche. It's unbelievable, you just don't expect something like that from a successful businessperson.
Regardless of whether or not Lebron "betrayed" the city of Cleveland, this comes off as EXTREMELY petty and unbecoming of any adult, much less the owner of a franchise. I'd be shocked if it turns out to be legitimate. After all, NONE of the owners of NBA teams got as wealthy as they are without doing things FAR more questionable than signing with a different team. Fact.
