David Stern said in Monday's press conference that Dan Gilbert's post-LeBron James tirade were "ill advised" and "imprudent" and that he has fined the Cavaliers $100,000.
I applaud David Stern for this move. Being an owner of a pro sports franchise comes with a responsibility, and throwing a guy under the bus after you failed to re-sign him is a coward move. I hope other owners of sports teams take a look at what Gilbert did wrong and never go down that road. When management decides to cut or get rid of players at the drop of a hat, its called BUSINESS. But when one of the biggest sports stars in the world reverses the game and makes a BUSINESS decision, he's a coward? GTFOH. Gilbert showed no loyalty to Danny Ferry or Mike Brown, he tried to lure Izzo away from an MSU faithful he was loyal to. He should know more than anybody the way the game is played and should be the last one to try and stand on a soapbox.
