Are You Nervous Mr. Gilbert?

      The NBA Finals start tonight. The well-monied, long-suffering Dallas Mavericks meet the purpose-built Miami Heat. Kidd and Nowitzki, meet Wade, James and Bosh.

     Far north of this championship fight, and Far south in the standings is a party who could be fidgetting. He’s the person that compels me to root for the Heat.

     

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.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wrote these words a year ago. He punctuated one of the most ham-handed PR moves with an even bigger one. James’ “decision” led to this derision and the call for a curse.

 Mr. Gilbert, I really hate to play Dr. Phil here….but….how is that workin’ for ya?

I’d like to see LeBron James put up a final performance on par with the finest Magic, Bird or MJ. A performance that makes Mr. Gilbert squirm a great deal as he will be a witness.

And as LeBron holds that golden trophy up in front of the world, I would hope that the chattering classes in the sporting press give Mr. Gilbert’s rant a second look. Remember:

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

Mr. Gilbert’s poison pen wrote a check in jealousy. I want LeBron James to see to it that the funds are woefully insufficient.

Are you nervous Mr. Gilbert?
