Dan Gilbert: Douche

If you're reading this, then you probably have already read Dan Gilbert's ridiculous open letter to Cleveland fans. Apparentl Cleveland fans love it. Let me be the first to welcome you fans into my, Circle of Gullibility". Dan Gilbert is playing you. And good for your stupid self. You don't deserve to have a player of Lebron's abilities.

Gilbert knows full well that Lebron did not have to stay in Cleveland. He fulfilled his contract and played his heart out for the team. Lebron didn't owe him anything. Gilbert already got a lot from having Lebron on his team. He made him a lot of money. Both as a member of his team and he helped him move lots of Fatheads at $99.99. Not cheap. I have to say this again: Owners and GM's do not give players the benefit of speaking to them ahead of time when they're deciding to trade them or cut them. And now if owners get their way, at the end of this season they will be pushing for non-guaranteed contracts for players. I hate that so many are trying to pretend that they knew that Lebron made his mind up to leave weeks, months or even years ago. They don't know that. And neither do you or I. Do I think he made up his mind the morning of his hour long show? Probably not. But I don't know if it was a couple of days before that. Even if Lebron did know, they still wouldn't have been able to get Amar'e, Bosh or Wade anyway. Plus, there's no way that the Cavs would have gone after Boozer after the way he left them years ago. So the Cavs would not have benefitted from finding out a week before the show. Besides, you know that Gilbert would have leaked it out the info out of spite. If you didn't know before the letter, you damn well know for sure after reading his letter that he would have been spiteful and spread the news before Lebrons televised event. You can decide to not like Lebrons decision to have that show, but if he wanted to keep it a secret, he could NOT let Gilbert know.

So yeah, back to those gullible Clevelanders - and the rest - who believe Dan Gilbert. He was being strategic. He needs to keep your fannies in the seats. In 7 years the best he could do by Lebron was get him an old Antawn Jamison. That was the best he could do. It's HIS fault you lost out on Lebron. I do believe Lebron when he said that he didn't want to be 31 with bad knees and no ring. I also believe that he took Kevin Garnett's words to heart when speaking about loyalty to a franchise when he said,

"Loyalty is something that hurts you at times because you can't get youth back. I can honestly say that if I can go back and do my situation over, knowing what I know now with this organization, I'd of done it a little sooner."

And by "it", he means ask for a trade out of Minnesota. I can't pretend to know what it is to be a Lebron or Garnett and play your heart out for an organization, but I do know what it is to leave a job for greener pastures. He's happier in Miami. I may question how competitive he is and how much "heart" he has, but I can't say he's wrong for trying to be happy. I mean, we all know Jordan wouldn't have made this decision, but Lebron is Lebron and Jordan is Jordan. They're different people. Lebron may be incredibly talented, but he doesn't have Jordans heart. You know what? 99% of the worlds population doesn't have MJ's heart. That's not a knock on Lebron, its a testament to the competitor that MJ was. BTW, that competitive streak also made him a compulsive gambler. Let's not forget the bad that comes with the good.

So to sum up: Gilbert = Douche.
