Cleveland Has A Better Record Than Miami, And Dan Gilbert Does Not…

Dan Gilbert said today that he doesn't regret the open letter he posted for Cavs fans in July. Wise of him. Any middle school girl will allow that it's ill-advised to back down from hate letters written in Comic Sans. » 10/27/10 9:50pm 10/27/10 9:50pm
