@snood,

yeah, huge blow for the C's.
i wouldn't call it stage fright, though.
baby seems to feed off the pressure of big moments.

i think he'll start, with sheed coming off the bench.
both will have to keep their composure, keep their heads in the game.
scalabrine might get some minutes as well...

should be a good 'un!

And in another devastating blow to the human personality, it appears that Phil Jackson will get to act like a smug, faux-Buddhist asswipe for another year.

...and we'll have to endure another year of Kobe Bryant being treated like a basketball championship and talent for playing the game is not only just fine as a substitute for, but even better than, any other redeeming qualities as a human being...

I swear, sometimes I think people have just gone batshit crazy en masse. The way we are hyping this announcement you'd think he was about to announce that he'd stopped the Gulf oil leak AND cured cancer.

Lebron James is a gifted athlete. But, I mean, is all this really necessary?

@snood,

the so-called experts have him staying put in cleveland, where he can get the largest contract.
but if they sign him, they won't have any left to get him a new sidekick or three...

Open Letter to Fans from Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert

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:

"I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP
BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE"


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

That's funny. Where was that energy, focus, capital, knowledge, and experience as the Cavs lurched through their hideous non-offense for the last three or four years?
