    Cleveland Cavaliers Owner Congratulates Dallas Mavericks and Teaches LeBron A Lesson

    I was able to read this story in ABS-CBNnews.com. The article is saying that the Cleveland Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert used his Twitter account to congratulate the Dallas Mavericks for winning the NBA 2010-2011 Championship at the expense of LeBron James and the Miami Heat.

    Of course he also commented about the performance of his former superstar LeBron James. He said in his Twitter account:
    @cavsdan, Gilbert tweeted: “Congrats to Mark C.&entire Mavs org. Mavs NEVER stopped & now entire franchise gets rings. Old Lesson for all:There are NO SHORTCUTS. NONE.”

    I believe that he's trying to target LeBron's summer decision to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami to form the so-called Big 3 in South Beach. For Dan Gilbert, that's a shortcut to win an NBA ring. I can't blame him for acting this way. LeBron really hurt his feelings and the feelings of the fans in Cleveland after he left the team that's in dire need of a superstar.

    Other NBA stars and players including King James also expressed their sentiments with regard to Dallas' triumph using their Twitter account. They said:

    Mo Williams, who was a teammate of James on the Cavaliers, posted on his @mogotti25 account: “Dallas just healed my heart....”

    James (@KingJames) himself tweeted a few words, saying “The Greater Man upstairs know when it’s my time. Right now isn’t the time.”

    Pau Gasol (@paugasol) of the Los Angeles Lakers tweeted: "Congrats @dallasmavs for the championship. Congrats to you too Dirk, you deserved that."

    Gasol's teammate Ron Artest (@ronartest), congratulated the Mavericks but issued a warning as well: "Congrats to the Mavs. Next year the rings will be back in LA."

    Meanwhile, Baron Davis (@baron_davis) congratulated the Heat's Big Three for a good season.

    "S/O to @dwadeofficial, @KingJames & @chrisbosh yall fought hard this season.... keep ya heads up."
