Also do you realize just how many more foul shots the Heat took last night?

back to the original post, its a little pathetic for dan gilbert and the Cleveland fan base and this is coming from a raider fan.

Dan Gilbert should be worried about some how making Cleveland relevant in basketball by winning not being relevant because lebron left.

Also lebron will have a championship before the cavs so its not that good of a statement.

I don't think it's pathetic at all.

You guys forget Gilbert basically let brons entourage run the caves however they wanted. Every player that the caves brought in were guys bron asked for and pushed for his team to sign/trade.

When bron left he basically left a car, and took the engine with him.

The caves weren't a great team but they were built around bron. This guy knew he was leaving along and let the cavs come along for a ride and left them in a terrible position. The hate is warranted.

ManRam's reaction is so appropriate that I had to quote it.

However, it must also be noted that this is seriously shameful on your part dnewguy. You set forth conditions, clearly lost, and are now backing away like a whipped dog while making a hollow (and factually inaccurate) effort to save face.

Bottom line is that I am not sure whether it is more embarrassing that you reneged on it or that you came up with that sad little excuse for doing so. I guess PSD really means a lot to you.

you're a disgrace to the heat fan base stop making excuses, the mavs had a better team throughout the series and it was plain obvious the refs were helping the heat last night. Recognize a good team when you see one and give them the credit that's due, I gave them credit even before the series started that the mavs would beat the heat in 6-7 games simply because they had the better over all team http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showpost.php?p=17970308&postcount=85

Both LeBron and Gilbert have taken shots at each other via Twitter. LeBron screwed him last year. He has every right to revel in his failure.

Anyway, hopefully Dan Gilbert can make good use with the 1st and 4th pick and turn the team around. Especially if the team plans to just tank one more season, their young core would be even more insane than the Thunder!

All the shots were instigated by Gilbert. His childish letter after Lebron left, multiple bitter statements. Lebron just fired back.

In the end Gilbert just looks really small and vindictive for keeping this up, the man ate off Lebron for 7 years and got fat. Without Lebron he would've been in the red up to his eyeballs in Cleveland!

He's a good owner. He just spoke his mind because he's such a fan. That's your opinion that he looks really small and vindictive but I disagree. He's a good owner with deep pockets that's not afraid to take on salary for draft picks. Also Gilbert wasn't there for all of LeBron's 7 years. Gund was the owner when LeBron joined the Cav's not Gilbert.

I don't like Lebron James and I see why many people are starting to dislike him but I don't think the Cavs owner should keep taking shots at the man like that. Lebron did a lot for the Cavs organization and the one person that should be appreciative of what Lebron did is the owner. Owners don't suppose to act this childish.

Since Gilbert is so happy, I wanted to read all the Heat fans reply...Whats wrong, "The Descision" was just 10 months ago, all the hoopla and the Heat fans are afraid to read the cold hard facts? Come on, I want to read all the whining. Here are some Thread idea's to get you going..

1. Spolstra needs to be fired
2. Can we trade Miller and Anthony for Dwight Howard and Derrik Rose?
3. The Refs killed us in the last three games
4. The Rims were smaller when we shot Free throws
5. Does Alonzo Mourning and Tim Haraway have any game left
6. Is Alan Iverson a possibility
7. When is leBron James HOF induction ceremony
8. Will Deron Williams sign for the vet minimum?

Nope. Not true at all. Amare didn't come because LeBron wouldn't commit. It had nothing to do with JJ.

It's not like he tweets every day about LeBron. He doesn't like LeBron and will take shots at him with any opportunity he gets. Plus let's face it ESPN will immediately jump to Gilberts Twitter page when LeBron fails and blast it over the internet. And I guarantee if LeBron succeeds LeBron will probably take a shot at Gilbert or Cleveland. It goes both ways.

Dear Gilbert, Shut up. The NBA gave you two picks in the top 5. Concentrate on them, build a team, and possibly beat lebron (playoffs series not regular season). Until you do that, I don't want to hear another word about you. He left your team, **** happens.

i agree with you. but u cant expect people not to be mad. imagine if 200-2003 we ad shaq kobe AND chris webber instead of samaki. Now i know why everyone hated us in 04 even though we had an old gp and malone. atleast we didnt call championship b4 the season started though lol

Why did you reply with this? Doesn't answer my question.

Pretty simple, Lebron promised 7+ championships and failed in his first year. You don’t throw a championship celebration before a game has been played.

Dallas won as a team.

Heat tried to win with three players, and failed.

Thus explaining Dan Gilbert’s comments about no shortcuts.

And for the record i wasn't trying to answer your question, just taking a shot at a stupid comment.
