Sure, if your a Cleveland Cavaliers' fan you have to be mad LeBron James is leaving for the Miami Heat. One thing that went too far is Dan Gilbert's antics after he announced on ESPN he will leave.

Here is Dan Gilbert's letter to Cleveland Cavaliers fans on http://Cavs.com/

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

Majority Owner

Cleveland Cavaliers 

Now, I think that went a little bit too far by saying he is narcissistic, but I can understand the anger from Gilbert. He is one of the most enthusiastic owners in sports and Cavaliers GM Chris Grant said it best about it.

I would be frustrated too if I were Dan Gilbert. You put all of the things around LeBron James that he wanted, then suddenly he leaves for Miami.

Dan Gilbert said the Cavaliers will win an NBA championship before the "Former King." I have to disagree with him on what he said there. Cleveland will have to start over and will probably take about 10 years to get back into serious contention for an NBA championship.

On the other hand, I see Miami winning a title in the next year or maybe two. Clevelanders don't want LeBron to win a title in Miami, but with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with him it will happen.

Then, Gilbert took it another step further with LeBron James's fathead. Gilbert is a big part of the world wide known Fathead. He slashed LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers' prices to $17.41. Remember, the year 1741 was when Benedict Arnold was born. I can see how Gilbert is furious with LeBron James, but I think he already made his point with the letter to Cleveland Cavaliers fans about him.

I understand Dan Gilbert's side of the story, but he went too far adding in the letter and the Fathead price slashing.
