Cavs owner Dan Gilbert rips LeBron

Is LeBron James a coward for leaving Cleveland to join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami?

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert rips LeBron

Is LeBron James a coward for leaving Cleveland to join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami?

If you ask Cavs' owner Dan Gilbert, the answer is yes.  In an open letter posted on the home page of the Cavaliers' Web site, Gilbert ripped James. At one point, Gilbert said this was a "cowardly betrayal" that the fans didn't deserve.

In bold and a larger font than the rest of the letter, Gilbert made a rather unrealistic promise to Cleveland fans:

"I personally guarantee that the Cleveland Cavaliers will win an NBA championship before the self-titled former 'king' wins one."
