Of course we are upset... Of course we are hurt.

This was devastating and we have a right to be p!ssed.

Answer me this has Dan ever called any of the players he has traded before the trade and expressed his regret?

I can't take a letter written in Comic Sans seriously. What are we, in 2nd grade?

Seriously. Just go to bed.

You should go to bed or grab a drink.

All of those accomplishments come thanks to one man, and one lucky ping pong ball.

I kicked that franchise when they won the most games the last two seasons and will continue to kick them.

I got kicked during the doldrum years as a Boston fan before KG and Ray came through our door. I got kicked as a Red Sox fan, Bruins fan and Patriots fan for a long-ass time.

Kick them I shall, especially over such irrational anger.

This makes Cleveland look like even bigger losers than they are today. Pathetic stuff from Gilbert.

And the thing is, the benefit of the doubt will be given to LeBron only so long. As of today, a great majority of the media acts like its the Cavs fault for LeBron not winning anything when its nothing of the such to Gilbert. Particularly after LeBron quit in Game 5. Something you punk mothf*ckas wanna keep missing over.

So now, not only does LeBron leave, he goes to a team where his weaknesses will be forever camaflouged over, regulating the Cavs as the brander of the scarlet letter while LeBron ring-chases behind Wade's ass.

You cannot be serious. This was the most excruciating two weeks in my life as a sports fan. He purposely made this thing as grandiose as possible and then failed to show a shred of genuine, human emotion during that farce of a Q&A following the decision.

I personally don't want to crucify him for anything. If you want to know my feelings on the matter just read the "Dear Cleveland Cavaliers Fans" thread in the Cleveland Cavaliers forum that I created. But I do feel he backed out of his word, which just tarnishes his image in my eyes for me personally.

It was the spectacle of buildup. The right way was to not invite anyone and appear on local news and talk to Clevelanders. None of you outside of Cleveland understand the relationship that exists, so people are going to be upset. He held his hometown hostage by signing limited-year contracts and by making us wait. No way to back him up on this. It was not the right way to handle it.

Wow... so classy and courageous to inform your team that you're not coming back on television -- thousands miles away in Greenwich, CT no-less

Lets say Lebron got injured or was a bust you don't think the Cavs would have traded him in a heart beat, while he was in vacation without consulting him. But however a player cannot do the same thing to the team?
