Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert let loose on LeBron James in a letter on the Cavaliers website, denouncing the “narcissistic, self-promotional build-up” to his decision to sign with the Miami Heat. He calls LeBron’s decision to leave Cleveland a “cowardly betrayal” and guaranteed that the Cavaliers would win a NBA championship before Miami does. In a phone interview with the Associated Press, Gilbert also blamed James for the Cavaliers’ defeat by the Boston Celtics in this year’s playoffs: “He quit,” Gilbert said. “Not just in Game 5, but in Games 2, 4, and 6. Watch the tape. The Boston series was unlike anything in the history of sports for a superstar.”
I really don't follow professional Basketball so I don't know LeBron or Gilbert. But you don't have to know them to ask whether Mr. Gilbert should look in the mirror. Owning a professional sports-team - is there anything more grandiose or narcissistic??
And Mr. Gilbert if you really thought LeBron "quit" on those games, why would you want him back?
Mr. Gilbert you sound like a petulant child who gets mad because someone else is playing in your sand box.
Over the last week, the pontificating about which team NBA superstar LeBron James would choose to play for has been ceaseless—especially between fans in Miami and New York. Even President Obama joined the fray, arguing that James should stay in Cleveland. The wait is finally over. “The Decision,” as ESPN’s taken to calling it, is official: James announced tonight from the Boys and Girls Club in Greenwich, Connecticut, that he’s signed with Miami Heat after considering five other teams—the New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Chicago Bulls. The major reason for his decision: “The best opportunity for me to win,” James said. “To win now and the future also.”
