Letter still an issue for LeBron


One reason, if not the major reason, that LeBron James has taken so long to decide whether to play in Miami or Cleveland next season is the infamous letter Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wrote about James after the superstar left Cleveland in 2010, sources said.


In the letter, typed in Comic Sans font, Gilbert called James a "coward" and mocked the many nicknames and catchphrases attached to James, such as "King James," "The Chosen One" and "Witness."

The letter remained on the Cavs' website for the past four years until the team removed it earlier this week.

Although James recognizes that informing Cavs fans and Gilbert, who was told of James' decision to leave Cleveland in a telephone call five minutes before it was announced, on national television was a mistake, he is still wrestling with whether to return to play for Gilbert's team.

"If it wasn't for that letter, this would've been done a while ago," one source said.

A Cavs source downplayed the letter to ESPN's Josina Anderson on Friday morning, saying that there was "no indication from them to us at this point either way" on the letter playing a part in holding up LeBron's decision. 

Although there have been rumblings about Gilbert and James clearing up their differences in the past, no such discussion or meeting has been confirmed. What is known is that Gilbert has never issued a public apology to James.

Sources close to James said Thursday that the four-time MVP wanted to speak with his family before making his decision. Many around the NBA have wondered what there was left to talk about, but James' concerns about the Gilbert letter is a plausible explanation.

While league executives wait for James to make his announcement, many refuse to believe that he'll return to Cleveland to play for Gilbert. Some even believe it would be hypocritical after how powerfully James spoke out against Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling after racist comments by Sterling were made public in May.

James was the first player to speak out against Sterling, saying he had no place in the NBA.

Just now read the essay he wrote. It's actually well written. Comparing his time in Miami to him going to college for 4 years is a pretty dope analogy, considering he skipped college to become a city's savior at 18-years-old. He never got the chance to leave home and get away from all he has known. He got that (and all the scrutiny that came with it) in Miami, allowing him to grow up a bit. Also like what he said about hoping the Ohio kids that go off to college come back home to raise the kids and do business.

I'm feeling that. Some will say he should be prideful and stick it to Gilbert but life is short, do what makes you happy.

I agree RT.

 
And Dan Gilbert will probably grovel at Lebron's feet for his entire career.
What ever Lebron wants he will have.
 
Its his city now
 
 
Like Mickey or anyother owner is different.
Cmon now
 
I honestly think Lebron is one of the good ones.

I can't lay that at Lebron's feet.

And hey, maybe Bron will buy the Cavs one day.

Dead

Imma miss him playing in Miami but I just hate how Gilbert is getting away with being a bitter mitch all of these years.


...I'll be rooting for Kang James but side eying the fcuk out of Gilbert until he publicly apologizes. That ish would have been in my contract.LOL
