Cavs owner claims Cleveland will win NBA championship before LeBron James does in Miami

July 9, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Someone didn’t count to 10, before speaking his mind.  Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert leveled a blistering verbal attack on native Cleveland son Lebron James, for signing as a free agent with the Miami Heat.  He described James as “selfish” and said his actions were a “cowardly betrayal” of his hometown.

“You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal,” Gilbert said in the letter on the team’s website to Cleveland fans. “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.

In a follow-up to this bluster, Gilbert told the AP in a phone interview that he felt James quit during 3 games in the playoffs against the Boston Celtics, who rallied from a 2-1 deficit to eliminate Cleveland this year.

    If anybody is selfish, it would be the owner of the Cavaliers. He is thinking about how much money he will lose by Labron leaving.

    Labron is a free man, he played all those years in Cleveland and put them on the map. The team owner seems to be a proponent of slavery.

    Good Choice Labron!
