Cleveland Cavaliers’ Owner Blasts Lebron James

The Lebron train has finally made a stop…in MIA. As you probably know by now, Lebron James announced earlier tonight that he will be leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers and joining the Miami Heat in hopes of winning a Championship ring. He turned down a $128 million 6 year deal with the Cavs to play alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for an expected $99 million, 5 year deal with the Heat. I mean, the team is clearly stacked, but Lebron had to take wins over dividends…besides…its still 100 million dollars in the end.

Meanwhile, Cleveland Cavalier’s owner Dan Gilbert went IN on Lebron James in an open letter to Cleveland fans. He also guaranteed them that Cleveland would win a championship ring before their “former king” won one and he told the AP that he felt “personally betrayed” by Lebron. “People have covered up for Lebron for too long. Tonight we saw who he really is”. Check the letter below:

Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight.

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:

“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE”

You can take it to the bank.

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.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day….

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue….

Dan Gilbert

Cleveland fans were also burning Lebron’s jersey last night. “I would have loved to have stayed, but I feel like it’s time to change.” – Lebron

According to Lebron, “Ultimately, the decision had to come from me. To be alongside greatness raises your level,” James told “Good Morning America’s ” Robin Roberts in an interview which aired today, referring to recent Heat acquisitions Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.

James, arguably the NBA’s greatest player, said he made his decision as visions of championships danced in his head.

“I’ve won at every level, won championships at every level,” James said. “It won’t be fulfilled until I win at the highest level.”

  2. That owner needs to sit his money hungry greedy white ass down somewhere. Like Lebron said, its a business decision. He is displaying the typical white man greed syndrome. He is salty because he feels that his gravy train is now threatened. Lebron does not owe him or Cleveland a damn thing, he has to do what is best for him.
