Lebron Breaks His Silence on Gilbert

LeBron James has finally decided to respond to the comments made by his former team owner, Dan Gilbert.

Last week after LeBron made his announcement that he'd be playing with the Miami Heat, Gilbert wrote an open letter to Cavaliers fans, calling James' decision "a cowardly betrayal' and referred to him as "a former hero'' and insinuating that he was self serving.

Gilbert also called the way in which LeBron made his announcement which was televised as a “shameful display of selfishness and betrayal.”

Addressing the comments, LeBron James stated,

"To hear my former owner's comments, I absolutely know I made the right decision. I don't really have a reaction to what Dan said. When things hit the fan, you see a guy's true colors. I have no reaction because at the end of the day, Dan's comments won't stop me and my family from sleeping at night. It just won't do it. It's just going to make us powerful, more powerful.''

National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern was also not impressed by Gilbert's letter as he was assessed with a $100-thousand fine. Stern stated,

"I think that remarks by Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cavaliers, catalyzed as they may have been by hurt with respect to the manner and the fact for himself, his team, and particularly for the people of Cleveland, though understandable, were ill advised and imprudent. I have notified Cleveland that they will be fined $100,000 for those remarks under my power as Commissioner."



Bam Commentary: Dude gave lebron more air time then he got for signing with the heat. I dont think that fine will hurt him at all but I think the drop in his team value since lebron left will. What do you think?

Kandi from housewives of Atlanta single??

I am sure all yall know Kandi from the real houswives of atlanta right..well according to this recent statement she gave to essence it looks like she may be back on the singles market. here is the statement she gave discussing her and AJ>> We’re on hiatus. He’s a great guy and he’s not the type to sit on his behind like a scrub, so it has nothing to do with that. Yes, he has a lot of children, and yes, I didn’t know about them all at first but I got over it because as long as you handle your responsibility and spend time with your children it’s not an issue for me. Another thing I want to set the record straight on is that AJ was married before. A lot of people make comments like, if he didn’t marry his other children’s mothers then why do you think he’s going to marry you. That def says to me that something aint right at the moment so you go your way and im a go my way for now lol. Guess i can kind of see why her Mom didnt wanna take that pic with him now SMDH..thats alot

Mob nabs, beats man sought in girl's rape

In '02 he faced charge of attempted rape DEMETRICE REYNOLDS said she had one wish for the thug who brutally raped her 11-year-old daughter: "I want him dead." Her wish may as well have been broadcast across Kensington. About a dozen neighborhood residents flew into a rage yesterday afternoon when they cornered Jose Carrasquillo, who police said they had linked through physical evidence to the heinous Monday-morning rape of Reynolds' daughter. The justice-seeking mob rained fists, feet and wooden sticks upon Carrasquillo, 26, for several minutes until police intervened at Front and Clearfield streets. When the dust cleared, Carrasquillo, whose last known address was Orkney Street near York, was in critical condition at a local hospital, and police officials were thanking the locals for helping them catch a man they had pursued feverishly but identified only as "a person of interest." "Justice, community-style. It's a beautiful thing," sai
