I Meant It: Dan Gilbert sticks to his Guns and Boobie Gibson has Much Love for Cleveland

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert has had a few days to think about it since firing off that scathing email about Lebron last Thursday night and he's not changing his tune.

He did an interview with Sports Illustrated and did not try to take anything back, in fact he expounded on some things. James had them baffled with the decision to go to Connecticut.

"I strongly disagree with Rev. Jesse Jackson's recent comments and we are not going to engage in any related discussion on it. Going forward, we're very excited about the Cavaliers and the positive future of our region."

Meantime, Daniel "Boobie" Gibson is also penning his thoughts. Here's what he had to say about the Lebron situation:

What Up World,

This Message is Directly for the fans of Cleveland from your adopted son, The one and only Boobie G. As you know i was born and raised in Houston, TX. Never once stayed outside the state for more than two weeks and the time I did, that was for basketball. But after two years of college at the University of Texas I decided to make the jump. You can just imagine how fast my mind was racing going to a city so many miles out of my comfort zone not knowing one single person. But I thank God it was Cleveland! Because From day one the city embraced me and made me feel like I was home. My Second HOME. And as time went on I began to see why we connected. Cleveland is a never die city, city of loyalty, hard-workers, passion, desire, and toughness. A lot of the same characteristics I have in me and that inspired me. So I made a promise to myself that every day I stepped foot on that basketball court I would show the world what Cleveland was all about. Leaving everything i had on the court. So no matter what obstacle was placed in front of me, I would bust right through it. No matter how high, I would get over it. Or how wide I would get around it. N I hope I did that and will continue to do that. I said that to say, I know right now emotions are high, and people are confused about the way things went down. But I'm here to say DO NOT FORGET THAT WE STILL HERE. and WE GONE GRIND!!!! The Cavaliers haven't went anywhere, just lost a piece. Everything in life happens for a reason, Some which we don't understand and never will. Something's we cant control, But the thing we can control is our passion and our love for city of Cleveland and state of OHIO. And that every single night we take that we floor We Will represent. Blood SweAT and Tears. We will go hard. Just like you. From the bottom to the top, this organization is committed to winning and we wont stop now..... Cant stop now. I LOVE you. We Love YOU. And together We gone make it Happen. O H I O. Hang in there.

As for me on another note, I'm in L. A. working on my game so that I may be a key part of this movement next season. The family is doing great. My wife to be is in the studio every day and night trying to create the best album of her career. Cutting no corners putting her heart in it like never before. With so much new emotion to show the world. My son Daniel Jr. Is 4 months now. Everyday he gets bigger. We took him to the doctor yesterday to get two shots. And lil man did not shed a tear. Even laughed a little bit. Tough lil dude, something like his daddy lol. The rest of the fam is back home in Houston working with the DGIB Hoops Foundation-Shooting for Success. Helping mainly inner city youth to meet new friends, become more discipline, athletically and academically so that one day they may qualify for scholarships and go on to college and be whatever they want to be. Following a living example. Me... Well that's enough for today, yall stay tuned for my next post and remember if you believe, you can achieve. Anything

Cleveland Stand up
1LUV,
BooBie
