Honestly why should he at this point. He got what he wanted out of Bron and dude got him paying out the ***. No reason to appease him anymore when he's going to leave anyway.

How Dan didn't tell the owner of the team he was firing his GM?

Bron might really leave these ****** twice roll.gif

Dude won them a title anyway,doubt the fans would take it the same way they did the first time

Even if he doesn't come to the clips or lakers, i'm here for the chaos. The idea that a player of LBJ's stature would leave a team twice is awesome :lol

Chauncey should be fired already.

I was moreso talking about me. All these rumors of the Lakers doing stuff just to let me down

I wonder if after last time Gilbert is legitimately thinking of trading lebron after what went down. I don't know what else the differences could be that the Gilbert and lebby's scapegoat could be.

Letting go a highly touted coach and GM in David Blatt & David Griffin, and replacing them with former players seems to me like a system where Gilbert has a bad rep with other coaches and executives in the league, and big name former players looking for opportunities are his only option.

Dude is most likely trying to cut costs after going over the luxury tax the last few seasons

Who'd be cheaper than former players trying to break into front office/coaching work?

Well to be fair to Gilbert/Griffin, the players did not like Blatt and weren't going to rally around him. Guess the culture difference was too much to overcome.

Y'all thought Gilbert was a competent owner ever since he released that Comic Sans letter? Dude is as big of a joke as that font.

Source: LeBron is "disappointed" at Griffin's departure, as well as the timing, & "concerned" abt what this portends for Cavs going forward.

 

 

Worth noting: LeBron and Griffin had a solid working relationship. James appreciated that Griffin made the moves necessary to win.
