NBA News: Cleveland Cavaliers Owner Dan Gilbert Fined For Lebron Comments

Watch what you say about the NBA’s golden boy.

After Lebron James made his decision to go to Miami with Wade and Bosh, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert sent a letter to Cavs fans bemoaning James leaving and calling James many things, including “narcissitic” and “cowardly.”

NBA Commissioner David Stern didn’t appreciate the way Gilbert responded to his former player and fined Gilbert $100,000.

Stern spoke at an owners meeting in Las Vegas. Stern also said he disagreed with the way James went about making his decision. Stern reiterated that James had every right to do what he did, but the “The Decision” was “ill-conceived.” Stern also said he felt that if James had kept Cleveland up to date on what was happening and didn’t make them wait until the show, a lot of this would have been avoided.
