    Hi everyone,


    I've been viewing the forum for some time now, but I have never actually posted until now.


    Like many others I shot an e-mail to Dan Gilbert a couple nights ago expressing my frustration with the team. In particular, I comented on the lack of passion the Cavs have been playing with. Gilbert (or perhaps more realistically, his assistant?) responded to all the Cavs fans who have been e-mailing him:


    Just posting this to see what you think.

    If that actually was an email from Dan Gilbert, I can only say that he is the hokiest owner in the league. I think Pip got it right. Kavdawg is actually LJ4MVP.

    Now would be a good time to experiment for the future (Gibson at PG and AV starting) but not to panic.

    Welcome to the boards man I love the pic of LBJ.

    Hahahaha you're funny. Hillarious. 16-game winning streak against a team that doesn't give a damn. And the latter wins. Brilliant.

    Homer. What happened to your "countdown to 60 wins?"

    Just about everyone here expected around 60 wins, otherwise they wouldn't be upset with our record now.

    And we are winning tomorrow.

    A) Welcome Kavdawg, with your combination of the Cavs & the Browns in your name. This shows you are a true Cleveland fan. Some might say I am being disingenuous. Those people are wrong.

    B) I highly doubt we win tomorrow against the Suns. I hope I am proved wrong, as happens on a daily basis, as pointed out by my fine girly girl.

    C) Sa-weet pic of Lebron.

    D) From a business perspective, Gilbert needs a winner. I believe what he says, because he is a crazy mo-fo, and has no sense of reality. But he seems to let those who at least have the experience run the show, and I do believe we'll have some upgrade - not a long term answer - by the deadline. I remain on Bibby watch, which everyone here knows.

    E) Bibby will not return my emails.

    I didn't expect 60 wins unless we came out of the shoot fast; but I didn't presume a new offensive system would instantly take hold and improve on the basic sets we ran last year. Regardless of what a team did the previous year, every season is different. The consistent winning that teams like Spurs and Mavs have enjoyed is the exception, not the rule.

    Has he been spending time talking to Phil Savage???

    I love what Gilbert has done with this franchise, don't get me wrong. But an e-mail saying all is well won't placate us. Only one thing can do that - wins.

    Even short of wins, I'd like to see where issues that seem to linger forever, are getting addressed and we are heading in a positive direction. And I don't see that.

    Dear Mr. Gilbert,

    As you know the Cav's are free falling in the standing at the moment. I am of the opinion that Mike Brown has a big part in this losing streak. Mike Brown consistently uses horrible rotations, calls time-out after the team has gone on a big run, and he always blames the losses on the defense even though we have nights were we score 80 pts.

    Can you please explain to me the 5 man unit of Wesley, Gibson, Verejoa, Damon, and I believe Gooden that was out on the floor at the same time in the 4th quarter in a close game?

    Can you explain to me why the Cav's are not running even though Larry Hughes (2nd best player) and LeBron (best player) have publicly showed disdain towards our so called motion offense.

    I do not expect you to respond to this but is there ANY talks of trades happening any time soon? Perhaps a Flip Murray type deal, because it is likely Larry Hughes will get hurt again.

    One name I would like to throw our there is Martel Webster. He was picked 6th in the 2005 draft and has recently fell out of Portland's rotation. He can shoot from behind the arc and can spread the flood unlike Larry or Snow. <---Just a thought....

    Finally will we be seeing Gibson starting? I see him play a lot minutes one day and play well, then the next he will play 7 minutes? He has clearly showed that he can run the point and can create for others. He can hit the 3 which opens lanes for Larry and LeBron.


    I would greatly appreciate it if you respond...

    Thank you,
    Ryan


    ^^ I just sent that to Gilbert....lets see if he responds...
