Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is not afraid to speak his mind.

Gilbert made headlines when he sent out his infamous letter directed at LeBron James back in 2010, and he has been making news with his words ever since.

James came back to Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday night for a clash between his Miami Heat and the Cavs, so emotions were running high for everyone involved.

The Heat held on for a 100-96 victory over the short-handed Cavaliers, which is closer than many expected. However, one play involving Cleveland's Dion Waiters stood out in Gilbert's mind:

Superstars usually get away with more, but the Cavaliers owner felt like something should have been called on either James or Udonis Haslem.

Although Gilbert called out the refs with his tweet, he held back a little bit. We are all wondering what he meant by "tra." Maybe it was better that he didn't finish his thought.
