BREAKING NEWS: David Stern has overruled Brandon Roy’s retirement announcement, after an angry Dan Gilbert sent a letter that called Roy’s cartilage damage a “travesty” and guaranteed that a Cleveland Cavalier player would suffer a catastrophic injury before LeBron James ever did. Roy is expected to report to the Blazers camp tomorrow.

Commissioner,

It would be a travesty to allow the Lakers to acquire Chris Paul in the apparent trade being discussed.

This trade should go to a vote of the 29 owners of the Hornets.

Over the next three seasons this deal would save the Lakers approximately $20 million in salaries and approximately $21 million in luxury taxes. That $21 million goes to non-taxpaying teams and to fund revenue sharing.

I cannot remember ever seeing a trade where a team got by far the best player in the trade and saved over $40 million in the process. And it doesn’t appear that they would give up any draft picks, which might allow to later make a trade for Dwight Howard. (They would also get a large trade exception that would help them improve their team and/or eventually trade for Howard.) When the Lakers got Pau Gasol (at the time considered an extremely lopsided trade) they took on tens of millions in additional salary and luxury tax and they gave up a number of prospects (one in Marc Gasol who may become a max-salary player).

I just don’t see how we can allow this trade to happen.

I know the vast majority of owners feel the same way that I do.

When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

Dan G.

Magic Johnson assists Dan Gilbert

Cleveland Cavs owner and our favorite anti-bloggissist, Dan Gilbert, has teamed up with our favorite terrible-post-career-NBA-analyst, Magic Johnson, to deliver all of you a free cell phone that come loaded with the “Bankrupting America" app!

"It’s gonna take a little Magic!"

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert hates bloggers, or, as he calls them, “bloggissists”. What else does @cavsdan hate? Europe’s tiny ice cubes.

But he’s not all negativity. What does Dan Gilbert love? Kid Rock.

Gilbert may not be a musicissist, but he knows his American badasses than any Pitchfork writer ever will. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Comic Sans screed, in which new bloggissist Dan Gilbert personally guarantees that cavsdan.tumblr.com will get to a million followers before the so-called NBA-Offseason blog ever does.

To recap, the Cleveland Cavaliers traded Mo Williams for Baron Davis and Kyrie Irving. Also, it looks like Dan Gilbert’s son received Al-Farouq Aminu’s glasses from last year’s draft in the deal.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and their owner, Dan Gilbert, either have a healthy sense of humor or a sick love affair with comic sans font. 
In case you want to know what’s wrong with picking comic sans font, besides the fact that it is inhumane and unprofessional, we remind you of that friendly little letter Dan Gilbert typed up after a certain somebody took his talents to a certain someplace. 
This whole situation is, well, comical.
