I can't get on the Gilbert hate train like some of you all. Yeah there is shit he does that is annoying. He has an ego and so does Lebron, but don't forget what Gilbert did to get Cleveland it's first title since 1964. I am not going to go over everything, but he took on some BAD contracts after Lebron left, and then he paid luxury tax out of the ass when Lebron came. Not many owners are willing to do that shit. Cleveland fans (tribe/browns/cavs), should know better too. Dolan is a cheap ass, and no doubt Haslam didn't fire Hue, because he is currently paying 3 coaches.
He is easily the greatest owner Cleveland has ever had. Tell me why I am wrong.
I don't want to give the impression that I'm hating on DG. I'm just saying that liking people you didn't end up with is like pissing in the ocean. If he was a great talent evaluator, we'd have seen more out of the draft than we have. No player that has added important minutes over the last 3 years has been a draft pick (LBJ don't count).
