Cavaliers: Open Letter to Fans from Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert After LEBRON GOES 2 MIAMI

Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his "decision" unlike anything ever "witnessed" in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don't deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:


You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our "motivation" to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that's simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown "chosen one" sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And "who" we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called "curse" on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former "King" will be taking the "curse" with him down south. And until he does "right" by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day....

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue....

Dan Gilbert
Majority Owner
Cleveland Cavaliers

This was HARSH!!! WOW! Well LeBron Congrats on the new move!! David Stern will definitely have something to say about that letter, BTW Gilbert says that he will win a championship B4 LeBron, my question 2 you is, with that roster and all the other powers in the Eastern Conference, HOW?? I guarantee you LBJ, Bosh and D-Wade by themselves could beat that whole squad even if they brought 5 people to the floor. Cleveland should have expected this and should be appreciative of how far LBJ has taken them! The Cavs were NOBODIES B4 LeBron came, so STOP beefing, STOP hating, congratulate the guy, build a championship-caliber team without him and MOVE ON! The roster you have right now might not even be able to make the playoffs of the NBDL! STEP UP CAVS!!! SHUT UP CLEVELAND!! It's not LeBron's fault you didn't have a championship-caliber squad for him, he gave u guys 7 YEARS!! That's on Dan Gilbert for not bringing in another superstar in his prime (Shaq doesnt fit that catergory!)! And BTW Miami, if the 9 people you pick as your bench are not good enough, do NOT blame LeBron for not winning a title, thats on Pat Riley! We always complain about players who only play for the money but when we actually have players who don't care who gets the most money, points or accolades teaming up and their is still HATING?? This is DESPICABLE AND UNCALLED 4! GET A LIFE!! You need 2 realize, winning a title is about teamwork NOT fame! C'mon son...
