NBA Fines Cavs Owner

This ought to shut him up: The NBA has fined Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert $100,000 for what it calls his “inappropriate” comments about LeBron James. Gilbert had penned an open letter to Cavs fans after James bolted the team for the Miami Heat, calling the star “narcissistic” and denouncing his “cowardly behavior.” The fine came hours after Gilbert replied to Jesse Jackson, who accused him of treating James like a “runaway slave.” Gilbert kept it civil, saying “I strongly disagree with Rev. Jesse Jackson's recent comments and we are not going to engage in any related discussion on it.”
