When LeBron James told Cleveland to suck it last night on national TV (dick move yes, but he did raise millions for the Boys and Girls Club), I felt bad for the state of Ohio. LeBron was all they had. Okay, the Browns and a bunch of fast food restaurants too, but LeBron made Cleveland relevant. When he carved out an hour of television to shiv Cavs fans in the kidneys, I have to admit, I felt sorry for the Cavs organization, Cleveland fans and anyone who had the unfortunate luck of living in Ohio.

Not anymore. Not after the amazing, douche-filled statement that Cavs owner Dan Gilbert released today:

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

Wow. I mean, wow. What a sack of shit. I just became the biggest LeBron fan of all time after reading that. Why would anyone go back to Cleveland to play for an organization that issues sour grapes nonsense like that. You promised me a championship, Bron Bron. You said we’d be together forever. I Cleveland curse you for life! Get over it Gilbert. Waaaaaa.

Whatever sympathy credit the Cavs had accrued was washed away by one ill-timed, retarded statement. Don’t get me wrong, that whole ESPN thing was totally ridiculous, but Geebo’s statement was worse than anything that took place during this week’s LeBron-a-thon. Cleveland deserved to get dumped.
