In July, after James one hour special, ‘The Decision,’ aired on ESPN, Gilbert released a rant-filled letter to Cleveland fans that labeled James a “coward” and “narcissistic.”
“I don’t regret it,” commented Gilbert in a recent interview with WKNR radio, “that letter was to the fans and supporters of the Cavaliers and not to the player that left.”
Gilbert was fined $100K by commissioner David Stern after the letter was initially released. For Gilbert’s sake, I hope the commissioner didn’t hear his steady approval of those heinous comments.
Gilbert, included in the letter, stated that the Cavs would win a championship before James would. When recently asked that same question, his response in a nut shell, “We’ll see what happens.” I guess reality has finally set in.
