The way he did it was obnoxious for sure.
The letter from the owner sounds like a defeated man trying to rally his troops.
I think this spectacle was part of the "business" for him and his team, we'll see if it was too much(read: backfire), or works in their benefit of building the brand.NSX - 80mm Turbo/built motor

The pinnacle of pro sports is winning championships.. Lebron would have won as many rings as charles barkley if he stayed in Cleveland.. With that said the way of building a championship team has gone the way of BUYING a championship team. Its big business and smart business.. There is no room for emotions... oh yea and Im not a Lebron Fan.

That letter is just a scheme to get the owner and the fans to be on the same team (Lebron James Haters), so the fans can keep their now worthless season tickets.
And I can't believe he made that bold guarantee about them winning a title before James. Is he really serious? Reminds me of the stupid ass shit that Paul Pierce said in Game 3 versus the Lakers. I wonder who won that series.ANA - American Nursing Association

Blablabla, even if they make the Finals, they'll still lose to the Lakers:
-Bynum/Gasol vs. Bosh; More talented, bigger, better postplayers
-Artest vs. James: James has more talent, but Artest can lock him down on D when he has his mind set on it. Just make James a jumpshooter, and the rest'll follow
-Bryant vs. Wade: Bryant can handle Wade, 'nuff said.
plus, with all the money Miami has spent on getting Bosh/Wade/James, they'll just have to take some garbage players. And placing B/W/J every game of the season on the floor for 40+ minutes will result in a Playoff-failure.
BTW; Heat @ Cavs gonna be epic..

I'm slightly ashamed to call myself a Clevelander with the way people are reacting here... Come on people, he worked his tail off for 7 seasons, he doesn't owe this city anything.

And if Lebron wanted to expand his brand he would stayed in Cleveland and still have been the #1 loved NBA player. His decision wasn't a smart business move, unless he wins multiple championships and then everyone will forget about hating him. Same thing happened to Kobe, when he was accused of rape. Went from being the most loved NBA player to being hated, until he won championships and now he's back on top. Rings talk, everything else walks.ANA - American Nursing Association

I just like the fact that Dan Gilbert had the balls to say whats on his mind. Realistically, we do not know what went on behind closed doors between them, therefore his reaction could be somewhat justified, but at the same time it may not be. But the truth is we really don't know everything that transpired.
