I'll defend him as well.

Gilbert doesn't answer to anyone outside of the fans of the Cavaliers. He knew what a crushing blow was dealt to these very people, and he got pissed off and wrote something that galvanized a damaged fan base.

I think their season ticket renewal rate after losing Lebron was something like 98%, despite every person knowing that they were going to be watching a painful rebuild.

I expect James to handle this much better than the last time, 4 years ago. There's a lot to be said for him keeping quiet and letting Rich Paul handle things. Cavs fans would have no one to blame if they get all worked up about a return and he doesn't come back this offseason. LeBron WILL be back in Cleveland eventually, it may not be for another few years, but I'm convinced that he will play in a Cavs uniform again, whether it's now or in 2 or 3 years, I don't know.

why am i finding myself so interested in what the Cavs are doing?!?!?!

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine 4m
ESPN sources say Brooklyn Nets on verge of acquiring Jarrett Jack from Cleveland in three-team deal

as an aside, I like Jarrett Jack, hotel I worked at was host hotel for Georgia Tech basketball so got to meet him when he played there...hell of a kid...but then again, so was Chris Bosh in his one year at GT...so it means pretty much nothing i guess...

This is getting embarrassing.

The Browns AM flagship (WKNR 850 AM) airs a two-hour Browns show every afternoon (1-3 PM).

This is an official Browns show. Produced by the Browns. Hosted by people on the Browns payroll, not the station's (in fact the substitute host today, Michael Reghi, was let go by WKNR a year or so ago).

They are discussing LeBron.

Not sure that the alternative of them talking Manziel for 2 hours would be any better.

Or they could talk about guys who will be getting playing time in the regular season.

On a Manziel-related note: I can't wait to see how Nike uses this unique opportunity to "revolutionize the clipboard."

The Air Manziel clipboard, coming to a Staples near you Fall 2014.

We ain't any better with the Ohio State stuff, although we don't have as much bleed in.

Kyrie is better than Wade.
Wiggins (or if moved with picks for K Love) might be better than Bosh?

It won't be a lot different if he comes back -> LBJ (max deal), Kyrie (max deal), probably an underperforming 3rd guy, and a bunch of role players who aren't very good because the org. doesn't have much cap space left.

I was listening to some afternoon Miami sports radio talk. They were trying to say that he may just be shipping his cars home for the summer to Akron. That may be true but the season ended almost a month ago. If he wanted to drive them around Akron, I'd think he'd have wanted them shipped home sooner.
