Dan Gilbert's Rage

Because of the LeBron James fallout, specifically, Dan Gilbert’s now-legendary response, I now have a new goal/desire in my life: to hear the guys who did the “Dramatic Reading Of A Break-Up Letter” YouTube classic read Gilbert’s letter in the same manner.

In case you haven’t heard the inspiration for this post, watch, learn and laugh:


Now, imagine that approach to this stanza from Gilbert’s rage:

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

And:

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.

Yeah, that would be my definition of win. We’ve got to find a way to make this happen. Maybe the folks at YTMND can help.
