Dan Gilbert's Slave Owner Tactics: I'm Glad You Left the Plantation LeBron

Quiet as kept, I am a native buckeye and I say bravo to LeBron James for knowing that he has broken the chains of one slavemaster, Dan Gilbert, the majority owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

And Boo to Gilbert for being unprofessional and acting like a true slave owner whose best buck just ran away.

Yesterday after announcing he was going to Miami. Gilbert released a scathing letter calling James a traitor, and someone who betrayed Cleveland. Wow, how the tides change when your money bag has left the building.

Plus Dan Gilbert is from Michigan! How the hell can someone from the bowels of Detroit call someone a traitor. That's that pimp shit.

Just a couple of months ago while James was playing in the playoffs he was God's right hand man in the eyes of Gilbert who was racking in millions of dollars as the true businessman he is. James wasn't "heartless and callous" then was he Gilbert?

Now since LeBron has made a business decision, Gilbert attempts to discredit his savvy business decision and his major accomplishments in that hell hole of franchise that he helped build from the time he was 18-years-old.

You'd think that Gilbert would congratulate a man who has maneuvered through multiple obstacles, brought life to an almost defunct city, and as of late, overcame the challenge of moving beyond his mother getting her back thrown out by two of his teammates.

But Gilbert in true greedy capitalistic money-hungry fashion that was far from sportsman-like conduct, did more than add fuel to the fire he took bitch jabs at LeBrons nuts.

Gilbert writes:
"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."

No Gilbert you're wrong about him transporting any bad mojo because the curse of him being under your spell like some child who doesn't know right from wrong o can't make his own decisions has been lifted.

And if he never wins a championship, he has already won for being a man of his own mind.

Gilbert go back to Cleveland and start trading for a better squad you arrongant, exploitative prick.

PS. Now its time for LeBron to figure out how he can pay for his own freedom under the new plantation called, Miami. They do grow nice mangoes in the form of silicon boobs I hear.

5 ish talking intellectuals holla at a sista:

I'm getting tired about hearing about this HATER (I actually don't like to call ppl this but it is well warranted and apparent in this situation). I bet if LeBron would have announced he was staying in Cleavland, the announcement special would NOT have been deemed "narcissistic" (as this punk a$$ mofo put it).

I'm coming across headlines saying that Bron will now be painted as a 'bad guy' (see MSN sports)...WTF! He already made Cleavland, the NBA, and countless other folks MAJOR money. And they want more! GTFOH. He fulfilled his contractual obligations and IMHO singlehandedly (okay, maybe with the help of his publicist, agent, et al) made Cleavland seem like a city that is not as f'd up as I've heard it actually is.

The bottom line is this: He HAD to make a decision, and as you alluded Eco, he made it with his interests in mind first. Isn't that what professionals do? Aren't they suppose to enter into relationships with their top priorities being addressed? It amazes me how we can live in a capitalistic society and as soon as certain folks (ahem, any folks of Color) can play the game perfectly and be painted in a negative light. This is a clear example of how fast the tables can turn when you make moves that YOU choose.

So Gilbert, that there is a man making grown man decisions. Stop whining, you lil punk a$$ mofo, and get the F over it.

I'm glad LeBron left too.

Gilbert's comments were a classic example of sour grapes.

A sad spectacle all the way around.
