Dan Gilbert

  1. LeBron James says he has not reached out to Dan Gilbert

    Feb 18, 2012, 6:24 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Remember when our Blogger-in-Chief Kurt Helin was like: LeBron is going to be a member of the Heat for years. He can’t predict what will be happening in his life and the NBA five years from now no more than you or me or anyone else can. So he tried to leave a door open.…

  2. Cavaliers use amnesty clause on Baron Davis

    Dec 14, 2011, 8:36 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have officially announced that they have used their team’s “amnesty clause” on Baron Davis, and waived the 32-year old guard from their roster. Davis’ current contract will pay him 13.95 million dollars this season, and Davis has a player option for 14.85 million next season. Davis will still make that money, but…

  3. Danny Granger and Jason Richardson tweet out their frustration over the league-halted Chris Paul trade

    Danny Granger

    Over the last few years, Twitter has completely changed the NBA experience. It gives basketball fans a place to congregate online in order to discuss breaking news or thrilling games. It gives reporters a mechanism to get their scoops to readers as quickly as possible, without having to worry about wasting precious moments for the…

  4. Video: Magic Johnson in cheesy commercial with Dan Gilbert

    Nov 4, 2011, 10:46 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert, Earvin Magic Johnson

    In some kind of lockout nightmare by Sterling Cooper Draper Price, Magic Johnson has teamed up with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. To shoot smart phones as if they were basketballs. And sell home loans. All done with extra cheese. It’s all part of a new Quicken Loans ad (that’s the company where Gilbert made enough…

  5. Report: League fines Heat owner $500,000 for tweets

    Oct 31, 2011, 6:11 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    You knew the second you read the tweets from Heat owner Micky Arison Friday that was he going to be forking over a healthy check to the league soon. Those tweets included his response to one fan who accused Arison of being one of the greedy owners ruining the NBA. “Honestly u r barking at…

  6. Can we just be honest and say this is about LeBron?

    Oct 23, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    When “The Decision” happened, we said it would change the course of NBA history. We didn’t exactly see this coming. Since the lockout began, there have been several storylines beneath the primary conflict. The racial component, the in-fighting between agents and union officials, the superstars’ interjecting themselves, it’s been a party of subplots. But this…

  7. About the owners losing money, it’s really complicated

    nets-barclays-center-basketball-2011-4-4-18-10-24

    There are NBA owners who have wondered if player endorsements should not be money in the basketball related income pool — those players wouldn’t make their money if not for the teams. But what about the other side of that coin — money the owners make on other businesses because they own and NBA franchise…

  8. Cavs owner Gilbert denies labor charges in his own way

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:05 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    You couldn’t make up someone like Dan Gilbert. No matter what font you used. We told you yesterday of a report that Cavaliers owner Gilbert and Suns owner Robert Sarver torpedoed progress at the labor negotiations Tuesday between the owners and players. That report comes from a trusted source in Dave McMenamin of ESPN. That…

  9. Report: Owners of Cavs, Suns killed potential labor deal

    Sep 15, 2011, 10:19 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    UPDATE 10:19 pm: David Stern called this report “incorrect and fictional” in his press conference following Thursday’s Board of Governor’s meetings. You can take that as the gospel truth or you can take it as Stern covering the backside of his owners. We all know this was the only thing Stern could say, he had…

  10. Oh, good. Dan Gilbert is one of the “hawk” lockout leaders. Great.

    Sep 10, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    On Friday, ESPN broke down the positions of the 30 owners in the NBA, and where they stand on both revenue sharing and whether they are a “hawk” or a “dove” in terms of missing the season to get a CBA in strong support of the owners. There’s a lot of really interesting information in…

  11. For all your obscure NBA trivia wall hanging needs, the Nick Gilbert fathead

    Jul 16, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    This is weird. I’m sorry, it is. It’s just really odd to see the 14-year-old son of an NBA owner who was considered to be the good luck charm for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2011 NBA Lottery as a FatHead. It’s just peculiar. But there it is. Right there. On the screen   All…

  12. While supplies last: Decorate your walls with the life-size image of Dan Gilbert’s son!

    Jul 15, 2011, 6:17 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2011-07-15 at 5.05.03 PM

    The fact that Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert also happens to own Fathead, monopolizers of the vinyl wall decal industry, became NBA relevant last summer. As you may recall, Gilbert marked down the price of all LeBron James decals immediately after he chose to leave the Cavs, and worked in a Benedict Arnold zing in…

  13. Dan Gilbert, Mo Williams enjoy the Heat loss too much

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:51 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The wounds are not healed in Cleveland. And watching LeBron James and the Heat lose was cathartic for many in Ohio. Or people who used to be in Ohio. Or people who just felt burned by LeBron. Or actually most of America. That includes Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, he of the comic-sans LeBron rant from…

  14. Wolves GM Kahn says fixed lottery comment was joke

    May 18, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    Image (1) david-kahn-thumb-250x166-16426.jpg for post 3277

    You should decide this one for yourself. Late last night we told you about Minnesota General Manager David Kahn implying that the fix was in on the lottery (and how that will cross the line with David Stern). On Wednesday Kahn has been saying he was simply making a little joke and that has been…

  15. Dan Gilbert’s 14-year-old son to represent Cavs at lottery

    May 12, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) dgilbert-thumb-250x140-15682.jpg for post 3091

    Isn’t it the dream of every 14-year-old boy to go to Secaucus? Actually, in the case of Nick Gilbert, son of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, this is pretty cool — he will represent the Cavaliers at the NBA Draft Lottery May 17. The younger Gilbert has Neurofibromatosis, a disease that causes the body’s nerves to…

  16. Cavaliers working hard to trade anyone, everyone

    Feb 16, 2011, 1:23 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    The Cleveland Cavaliers do not really have a championship roster. You probably figured that out somewhere during the 26-game losing streak. Well, you probably figured it out seconds after LeBron James talked about taking his talents south for the winter. Dan Gilbert figured it out later. What matters now is we are all on the…

  17. Cavaliers may be losing but Dan Gilbert is making big money

    Feb 7, 2011, 9:39 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    On the court, Cleveland is an unmitigated disaster. They’ve won one game since the start of December. They are losing big. On the accountant’s ledger, the Cavaliers are winning big. It’s the remnants of the LeBron James era — money committed before he was gone more than covers a post-LeBron payroll, as Jason Lloyd explains…

  18. Dan Gilbert thanks Cleveland fans for their patience, asks for more

    Jan 21, 2011, 7:01 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has been nothing if not outspoken in the months since LeBron James publicly left the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat last summer. Immediately after “The Decision,” Gilbert wrote a scathing letter that promised LeBron’s decision had cursed the Miami Heat and that the Cavaliers would win a championship before LeBron would.…

  19. LeBron returns to Cleveland, and nobody will leave feeling like a winner

    Dec 2, 2010, 4:08 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Some team is going to win a basketball game tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. But is anybody going to walk out of the building tonight in Cleveland feeling like a winner? Feeling happy? When emotions are this intense, this raw, is that really even possible? Can anything — even a win by the Cavaliers —…

  20. LeBron, Heat players respond to Gilbert’s tampering charge

    Dec 2, 2010, 10:18 AM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert has allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to a Midwestern law firm to put together a tampering case with evidence against the Miami Heat and how they lured LeBron James from Cleveland to South Beach. What does LeBron think about that? Not much, he told FanHouse on the eve of…

  21. Report: Cavaliers hire team of attorneys to build LeBron tampering case against Heat

    Dec 1, 2010, 7:13 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    So Dan Gilbert is over LeBron leaving? Riiiiiight. The Cleveland Cavaliers owner has spent several hundred thousand dollars to pay a team of attorneys to build a tampering case against the Heat that he can then present to the NBA, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The NBA won’t launch an investigation into a tampering…

  22. Quote of the Day: Dan Gilbert is over LeBron. He means it. Really.

    Image (1) dgilbert-thumb-250x140-15682.jpg for post 3091

    “I’m over it. I really am. That’s the truth,” he said. “I let it all out in about 24 hours. I just think we have such a great core and a great coaching staff. We have a lot of opportunities with the trade exception and the draft. I feel good about this team.” —Cavaliers owner…

  23. Dan Gilbert says he has no regrets. He probably should.

    Oct 27, 2010, 7:29 PM EDT

    Image (1) dgilbert-thumb-250x140-15682.jpg for post 3091

    The Cavaliers tip-off the post-LeBron James era tonight, coincidentally the same way LeBron kicked off his post-Cleveland era last night — against the Celtics. It will probably end about the same way for both of them. Tied into the season opener, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert had a lengthy interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, where…

  24. Cleveland Cavaliers comic sans court

    Oct 15, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    smallcourt3_061012_600

    They’ve got a sense of humor in Cleveland. Remember Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert’s scathing/ridiculous letter to fans the night LeBron James took his talents to South Beach? Remember how much heat Gilbert took for writing the letter in the odd Comic Sans font? That font is part of the Cavaliers court. Gilbert is seriously committed…

  25. Cavaliers tried to land Larry Bird, he said no thanks

    Oct 5, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Say this for Dan Gilbert — he went big when trying to get a new coach this summer. Granted, he needed one to provide some hope retaining LeBron James, but he went all out. There was the failed run at Michigan State’s Tom Izzo. Then there was a run at Larry Bird, according to Marc…
