    haha Windy

    Trust me from as who's dealt with Gilbert, I can only imagine what the first draft looked like. This was probably PR team's compromise.

    I just hope that if Dan's got the goods, he uses the media as well as LeBron did to bury whomever was part of anything illegal. Don't trust the commissioner, blow it all up...

    Peace.

    Stereo brings up an excellent point here. Looking forward to seeing what's on the horizon...

    Agreed.
    The guarantee that the Cavaliers will win a title before LeBron is going a bit overboard, but you gotta love Gilbert's passion.

    I don't know where to put this, so I'll post it here as so many are reading this thread.

    Is Windy leaving for South Beach? He's been tweeting about Gilberts letter and cracking jokes, so nothing seems out of the ordinary for him. If he was leaving, I'm sure he'd be saying something.

    Was that whole thing a joke. I really hope he stays for the crazy ride we're about to go on.

    I'm so damn glad we get to read this from Dan Gilbert instead of the usual PR bullshit "We wish him well in his future endeavors". The man clearly understands he was fucked over by LeBron and isn't afraid to proclaim it to the world. The only thing that could make this statement better is Gilbert during the press conference tomorrow showing the real LeBron James to the world. He didn't say the things he did for nothing... he's going to let the shit hit the fan tomorrow and I can't wait!

    Praise Dan Gilbert. Hes not even from Ohio and he shows that much more respect for the city than the Chosen One. Burn Lebrons jersey and burn his house.

    I agree and sent him an email thanking him as well. Just saying, don't forget about him where it really matters months down the line.

    I just printed that letter and put it in a cheap frame. Its sitting on my sports memorabilia shelf in my office.

    My emotions are running so high right now.

    chadfordinsider Gilbert entrusted LeBron's legacy to a rookie coach and a rookie GM. Lots of mistakes were made. Hard to fault LeBron for not winning title 42 seconds ago repl

    The letter was pretty good until he got to the part about guaranteeing a championship before Lebron gets one. Come on, even the most hardcore Cavs fan has to shake their head at that. That's anger and disappointment making claims that he won't be able to follow through with.

    He's calling Lebron out, but Lebron doesn't care. His decision tonight made it clear that he doesn't care. He knows that the Heat will be the most famous team in the NBA now and that ESPN will follow him, Bosh, and Wade around like Hollywood stars. They'll get more attention than Kobe and Kobe lives in LA. That's all he wanted. So the letter is true, but it also comes across and bitter and even delusional. All of the good free agents have been sucked up and Miami got rid of Beasley. It's also bad publicity for an owner to call out a player like that (even though it IS true).

    i'm sick of hearing these douche bags in Miami saying that they deserve a championship team! They are all just bandwagoners down their. Like someone said earlier they are rewarded for lsing and we get punished for trying to build a championship team! It might be interesting to see what Bosh Lebron and D Wade can do together but really they can just go fuck themselves!

    Long live the real King Dan Gilbert !!!
