But he pampered and showered LeBron with every need. He enabled him. And he put a poor product around him.
If Gilbert doesn't like the situation, he should get out of the league.
This isn't Dan Gilbert's fault. The NBA put themselves in this stupid situation. Both sides are right. The trade was fine, but to the league owning the team it isn't a good trade. I'm glad Stern looks like an idiot right now because this is 100% his fault.
