Quick aside: when did Stephen A. Smith turn into Adrian Wojnarowski? I know he’s been around a bit longer and has sources, but he’s dominating the “I spoke to so-and-so” game right now.
Anyways, Dan Gilbert has made it clear in the past that he has issues with LeBron. I don’t blame him, I’d be frustrated, too.
What I would NOT do is act like life post-LeBron will work out for Cleveland.
Dan, you are the desperate one in this relationship. LeBron left you for the hot, flashy 25-year-old from the club and you took him back with open arms the second he wanted to rekindle the flame. After a few years, he remembered why he left you and is looking for another young, vibrant upgrade.
LeBron got you a ring, which is what you wanted, now have some self-respect and just shut-up about this. Because if you don’t, we’re all going to remember this the next time he comes back — which will happen once LeBron is finally ready to hang it up, so he can say he retired a Cav.
