Then you are the only one. I can't recall anybody criticizing his tour to hear what the other teams have to offer.

Who would want to play for them now?

First you have to accept the fact that you are playing in a dying town.

Then, if you leavea, the owner will throw a hissy fit and bring up every negative thing you've ever done, even if you were the single greatest thing to grace that franchise.

That letter shows what we need more of in the NBA.

Straight up passion for the game, and for the team.

Cavs owner says Cleveland will win NBA title before LeBron? The man is obviously drunk.

Its got to be a relief for Lebron, not having to carry the Cavs & their sorry owner any longer. Huge weight lifted off his shoulders, he'll have a blast in Miami

Passion can be displayed in a respectful manner.

In general I am disappointed in the Cavs fans. You lost your best player so move on. It was always at least a 50/50 chance of happening.

As far as I can see Lebron visited all the cities, made up his mind, and had a very casual and far from glamourous press conference to announce it. nothing really nasty or resentful about it.

What is nasty and pathetic is the behaviour of the Cavs owner.

The only thing guaranteed for the Cavs is the lottery. Gilbert's business is going down and he knows it. That letter he wrote is tactless and pathetic.

Cavs fans, can you at least openly admit what everyone who watched the Celtic series thought - that Lebron quit after the team went up 2-1. How much of this passive play (in fourth quarter of game 4 and ALL of game 5 especially) was because he was so set on leaving Cleveland, and he knew he couldn't possibly leave Cleveland if he won or came close?

I really feel bad for Cavs fans and the people of Cleveland.

Losing LeBron was one thing.

But this letter .... holy sh-t. They will never live this down. I think that letter will probably be taken down in the morning once they realize how amateurish and childish it looks.

Dan Gilbert has no class and is acting like a little girl. Are you mad that LeBron left or that your cash cow left? Dude sounds like a straight up hater. Ungrateful ungrateful ungrateful.......Clevelanders and the Cavs organization should be ashamed of themselves. If you are co-signing this, you need to smoke some weed and chill out. Get over it.

BTW.....Cleveland aint sniffin a title before Miami does. Hell, I'd put money on the Sonics winning one before they do. True story.
