He is the first FA to handle things in such a public, callous way. Gilbert is obviously speaking openly when maybe the best thing would be to sleep on it and react in the morning, but he also speaks for a lot of people that are stunned by this 'decision.'
Make no mistake... LeBron 'went hard' on us before Gilbert fired back at him. This whole debacle which culminated in 'The Decision' was possibly the most pretentious, self-centered thing I have seen any sports figure do.
