After LeBron's big announcement to "take his talents to South Beach," Dan Gilbert got a tad emotional. He ended up saying so many stupid things that he is the sixth most foolish public figure of the year.
He was quoted to say, "I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER 'KING' WINS ONE." He said many other things about LeBron, but at this point we all know what he said, so I won't waste your time.
After hitting the guarantee gong for a 2010-2011 NBA Championship, Dan Gilbert only has three problems: The first is the Miami Heat; the second is the Los Angeles Lakers; and the third and final problem is their roster!
So Dan Gilbert is going to either have to absolutely re-amp the Cleveland Cavaliers roster, or pray his little heart out that either the Celtics or the Lakers manage to beat the Heat for a couple of seasons.
Now let us all look at the Cav's roster for a short time. Their best player is Mo Williams. Well, guess what, that didn't work very well for the Milwaukee Bucks. Their second best player is Antwan Jaminson, and once again guess what? It didn't work for the Washington Wizards. Also, Jaminson is now past his prime, so that's a double shot at the Cav's.
The Cav's best move so far this offseason was trading the nut job Delonte West for an average point guard in Ramon Sessions and a second round pick!
It's very easy to say that Dan Gilbert is off to a poor start in winning this year's NBA championship. His only chance in winning this season would be to trade his youth for a team of above average veterans, and to do this he would probably have to trade their two future drafts.
Winning a championship this season will probably be impossible for the Cavs, which teaches us all a great life lesson.
When you get emotional don't talk to the public. Talk to your dog. Your dog always understands!
