We all know about fatheads - the life size pin-ups of players and team logos that people buy to hang on their walls. Dan Gilbert is also the owner of Fathead.

Today, Lebron James Cavalier fatheads have gone on clearance from their normal $99.99 price to $17.41.

What is the significance of 1741?

It was the year the infamous former U.S. Continental Army General Benedict Arnold became traitor and defected to the British Army during the Revolutionary War.

The Revolutionary War was 1776. The year 1741 was the year Benedict Arnold was born.

Gilbert is a fool. You all might think this is funny, but what do you think the Cavs players are thinking? There not going to respect him at all.

He has lost ALOT of creditability around the league. Who will want to do a Trade with him? No one.

Anyone who thinks the league is not going to trade with this guy, that the Cav's players won't respect him or whatever.... Is smokin something!!!

What person hasn't said some trash after a bad break-up? Who hasn't ranted after getting fired? Who hasn't yelled a storm of hate after getting kicked in the groin?

The guy is allowed some lattitude. He just lost HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON NATIONAL TV!!! His entire franchise is worth a TON less then it was... they aint gonna be on TV again (except the games against LeBron)... His ticket sales just disappeared...

This guy has earned an entire week of laying on the floor with a bottle, ans saying what he wants!!!

Then your wrong. Pretty much all of the players on Twitter have said they agree with him. Dwight called out the people burning the jerseys.

i dont know what u couple guys talkin ish about gilbert are smoking.

HE IS TELLIN IT LIKE IT IS.

Bron is a primadona. Gilbert put up with it and kept his mouth shut in hopes he would actually stay. Bron embarasses the Cavs organization, the city of cleveland, and himself on a 1 hr nationally televised spectacle. Gilbert is more than allowed to tell everything that was going on behind the scenes.

Guys. This three headed monster was decided on after Bron tanked in the postseason. These guys knew. They played us all for fools. They played defense against the Bulls, Knicks, Nets, Clips, Cavs. They think they were smooth. But believe me, you can quote me on this, **** is gonna hit the fan when the world finds out what really hapened.

raking in lebrons revenues.

and before that, building a terrible, terrible franchise.

this guy is a clown. people are just so upset with lebron that they see him as a hero. its laughable, the entire thing. makes me embarrassed to be a sports fan to see how far people are taking this.

hes not embarrasing himself at all. people are going to slowly begin to realize that riley and the 3 FAs dooped us all. they knew what was going to happen for months. riley tampered but i dont think it will be proven to the point where stern can do anything. but these guys pissed enough people off that people are gonna start talking. and it has already started with Gilbert pointing out how bron tanked this postseason. the tape doesnt lie.

To add to that, anyone who knows anythign about Gilbert knows he owns the Michigan company that recklessly and knowingly put tons of homeowners into bad mortgages. It wouldn't be unfair to say that he is the individual most at blame for the housing market catastrophe and beaten down economy in Michigan. Maybe he's onto something with the karma talk.

gilbert, even is he made tons of $s off of lebron, never deserved what bron put him and the city of cleveland through. he could of done it like kevin durant did and just report it to the AP. but instead he acted like a ******* and had to embarass them on national tv on a 1 hr suck my c*ck espn special. now thats some ish

right. if lebron just announced it through ap, none of this hysteria would have gone on.

gimmie a break.

the reason durants went under the radar is cause EVERYONE WAS WATCHING LEBRON. I commended Durant, started the thread, but it got swallowed up amongst the hysteria.

this is just sad.

he's acting like a victim and hes not. Yes Lebron did them dirty by the way he left, but you cant hate him becuase he left. The initial reaction from Gilbert was justified, but now its just silly. Gilbert is snake himself, made countless millions off of Lebrons back, caved in to everything Lebron ever asked for, and now hes upset? This is a guy who made his money off of bad mortgage loans and suspect pay day loans that charge 1000% interest sometimes and does it all in the inner cities of America. Lets not act like hes an angel in all this. I do feel bad for Cleveland fans, i know how much I love the Bulls and all our teams, but i aint gonna feel bad for this millionaire who helped make his own bed.

he handled it poorly. very poorly and got too caught up in himself to see how his decision would reverberate around the sports world.

that being said...

cleveland fans are allowed to be devestated. but dont ask why.

"MR COOL" dan gilbert and the cavs had 7 years to do WHATEVER THEY WANTED to surround lbj with a contender and it didnt happen.

its good to see lebrons ego isnt too big for him to understand he needed a new start.

and with that on his mind, how could you say no to playing with two great friends who also happen to be perennial all-stars?

cleveland fans can mourn. everyone else is just bitter, jealous, scared or all three.

You're insane :facepalm:. Do you realize that the automotive industry is king in Detroit and Michigan? The government had to bail out the auto makers, not Dan Gilbert. You have no idea what you're talking about. It's unfortunate that anyone can write whatever they want on the Intertubes.

I live in metro Detroit and I'm a business major, but thanks for that. Also? Your reading comprehension needs work. Please explain to me how the government bailout of the automotive industry has anything to do with the housing market in Michigan. Actually, don't. I would be more grateful if your 1 post on this website were your last.

It was good that he is saying these things but he should focus on signing someone or getting something in a trade cause we all no the Cavs are doomed if they dont get someone that has good talent, the team has talent they just need more to compete with good teams.
