People act like the cavs didn't have a monster squad in the late 80s and early 90s. They just ran into Jordan. You guys act like the team has always been horrible

I'll say this about the letter. How do you expect him to respond when from the end of the Boston series until the decision Lebron talked to the Cavs ONCE! and that was at the great lebron interview. He talked to the team he had played for once, now my thinking after hearing that was we probably should have had a feeling what was coming, but he never told the front office he was leaning towards leaving or any indication of that. And then he had his friend call Gilbert 3 MINUTES BEFORE the decision. Of course he was rubbed the wrong way by all this and the letter was his venting. I agree, if he waited until the next morning the letter probably looks alot different but lebron put that man through alot since May-June.

Oh and for those who wonder who the worst are...

Five Worst NBA Owners

5 R. Johnson/M. Jordan Charlotte Bobcats
Purchased 2004
Purchase Price Current Value W-L Winning % Playoffs Championships
$300M $284M 144-266 .417 0 0
The Bobcats' two principle owners should stick to what they know best. Robert Johnson (pictured) made himself into a billionaire with his expert crafting of Black Entertainment Television. And Michael Jordan -- well, he's Michael Jordan. But what they're doing in Charlotte defies logic. For two guys with a combined net worth of more than most NBA owners, there's no reason the Bobcats should be so under-funded every year. They've been in the bottom of the league in payroll in each of their five seasons. Why Johnson and Jordan can't provide more from their deep pockets is still a mystery.


4 Chris Cohan Golden State Warriors
Purchased 1991
Purchase Price Current Value W-L Winning % Playoffs Championships
$130M $335M 590-854 .409 3 0
Under Cohan's ownership, Golden State set a record drought of missing out on the postseason for 12 straight years until it reached the playoffs and shocked No. 1 seed Dallas in 2007. But since then it's been back to the status quo for the Warriors, who are stuck in what seems like an everlasting rebuilding mode. In the meantime, Cohan looks almost foolish for sticking with Don Nelson -- a guy he once sued for leaving the club for the Knicks during his first go-around -- now just an outdated dinosaur who openly admits the game is passing him by.



3 Michael Heisley Memphis Grizzlies
Purchased 2000
Purchase Price Current Value W-L Winning % Playoffs Championships
$160M $294M 286-452 .388 3 0
The billionaire was eager to move the team after promising not to leave Vancouver when he bought it. Since then it's been a lot of thrift city. Heisley has not allowed the Grizzlies to go anywhere near the luxury-tax threshold in the last few seasons. This season, they flirted with a third straight 60-loss finish, and nothing has drawn the ire of fans and owners across the league like the salary dump of Pau Gasol last season to the Lakers. "What do they want me to spend, $100 million?" he barked at the Memphis Commercial Appeal in '06. "The point is we're out-spending San Antonio and we're out-spending Phoenix. So the point is whether you're spending money means squat." Guess the playoffs mean squat, too.


2 Cablevision/James Dolan New York Knicks
Purchased 1997
Purchase Price Current Value W-L Winning % Playoffs Championships
$300M $613M 418-534 .439 7 0
Subterfuging two of the most storied franchises in pro sports at once takes hard work, but Dolan has managed both. The business tycoon took a controlling stake in Cablevision in 1999, and immediately both of his marquee sports properties -- the Knicks and the NHL's Rangers -- tailspun into the most futile eras of their respective histories. The Knicks have been particularly bad, with eight straight seasons of less than 40 wins and one playoff appearance. Most embarrassing was Dolan's stubborn loyalty to Isiah Thomas who, in his 4 1/2 years with the team, failed miserably in his countless attempts to retool the roster, including continuing Dolan's habit of grossly overpaying for oft-injured and underperforming stars like Stephon Marbury.


1 Donald T. Sterling Los Angeles Clippers
Purchased 1981
Purchase Price Current Value W-L Winning % Playoffs Championships
$12.5M $297M 773-1,491 .341 4 0
There is no American sports franchise more a.ssociated with futility than the Clippers, who have posted only two winning seasons under Sterling's ownership. Marquee players have come and gone -- including Danny Manning, Dominique Wilkins, Lamar Odom, Elton Brand and Baron Davis -- and none has been able to turn around the losing tradition. Though they've achieved some level of stability in the past few years -- notoriously cheap Sterling has cracked his checkbook a tiny bit, and Mike Dunleavy is now the longest-tenured coach in franchise history -- the team is mired in its old losing ways, eclipsing 60 losses for the eighth time under Sterling.

Dolan is number 2??? That f**k should be number 1. Hate that motherc*nt, f**king hate him smdh...


& the Cavs owner is not the best in sports, but he's far from the worst. Take out what happened last year with "The Decision" fiasco & nobody could deny that he was doing the damn thing. His organization had the best reg. season record two years in a row, his star player won the mvp two years in a row, the supporting cast FOR Lebron James was perfectly suited to help do damage in the playoff & his was making a ton of profit selling out home games & road games.

Now what happened after James left is probably his fault as far as not getting players to come play for him. He & the Toronto Raptors owner are being looked at sideways because of how they dissed their stars after they left. People have been saying because of that players might not want to go there if they're gonna be spit & chewed out like that. Pansy excuse but some star players may feel that way. Bring in the fact that Cleveland isn't a major market team, they lack marketable stars based on the players left there & things could go from bad to worse.......or better.

I really do hope the cavs get there s**t together but it's relaxing not to hear most cavs fans boast about winning the chip or having the best team in the nba anymore lol.

It's a gamble to wait until the deadline when you are in a tough spot. Other teams might call your bluff. However, if you really don't have anything to lose, it makes sense.

Gilbert is a good owner.. He's not afraid to spend to build a contender. Last year the Cavs' payroll was $90m. With the recession going on and everything, teams were trying to unload contracts and he was trying to pick up players to put his team over the top.

As for his letter to Lebron.. It was well deserved. Gilbert let him have his pick of the litter in terms of people in the organization to keep him happy. Spent over $60m out of his own profits (~$60m cap + $30m dollar for dollar luxury tax) to build him the best team. Was willing to trade for Bosh & Amare but they didn't want to go to Cleveland.

Then fired Mike Brown when it was reported that Lebron lost confidence in him and hired Scott.

There's not much more he could have done.
perfect post.
