Schon: Open Letter to Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert

An open letter to Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert – I feel your pain. More than you realize. The way King James Modelled you in front of the entire world must have felt like a Brock Lesnar kick to the coconuts. It was LeBrutal

An open letter to Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert – I feel your pain. More than you realize. The way King James Modelled you in front of the entire world must have felt like a Brock Lesnar kick to the coconuts. It was LeBrutal - especially after all you've done for him over the past of eight-years.

It's amazing how these young, narcissistic, superstar athletes think nothing about cowardly deserting their own hometown and in LBJ's case, an organization as classy as the Cleveland Cavaliers. Believe me, there's nothing that oozes class like blue, Comic Sans font when trying to get your point across.

I applaud you for your heartfelt and eloquently written rebuttal on NBA.com, I applaud the Cavalier fans who felt compelled to torch his jersey for the cameras, despite the fact it was the equivalent of burning up their entire week's paycheck and I admire the guarantee you've given your fans to bring an NBA Championship to a state that's seen more misery than James Caan.

Despite what anyone else may say, you were well within your rights to point out to the Associated Press how he tanked in the second-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics. If I remember correctly during Game Five the guy had more turnovers than Jenna Jamison, which is certainly not acceptable for a franchise as storied as the Cavaliers.

In fact, if you think about it long enough and have the proper amount of alcohol, you could find plenty of flaws in the career of LBJ during his reign in Cleveland, not to mention the enormous costs involved in keeping plenty of hand powder at the scorer's table.

I'm no accountant, but there may be a way to write it off now that he's officially cut the cord.

Hopefully you can rest easy knowing the self-declared former "King" will be taking the "curse" with him down south, where he'll languish on some of the world's finest beaches, surrounded by women who can barely afford to cover their scantily clad bodies, playing with a bunch of has-beens like of Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, who will undoubtedly never pass the ball during crunch time.

Serves him right – after all you've done. Look at the bright side; maybe you can find a way to bring back Shaq. Oh wait, that didn't work out either...
