The Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert answered questions during a press conference today around the speculations that Lebron James will leave Cleveland in 2010.
â€œItâ€™s kind of an insult to the city of Cleveland in my opinion â€” an insult to the Midwest,â€ said Gilbert.
He said, Lebron gave no indication that he will leave after his contract expire in two years and that’s not the focus of the team right now.
â€œI think weâ€™re going to compete for a championship in the next year or two and weâ€™ll worry about that summer when it comes.â€ Gilbert said.
The speculation about Lebron leaving Cleveland is nothing more than conjecture from bored sports reporters.
â€œPeople in your profession are very bored on both sides of the country. Thereâ€™s no basketball going on so they write this stuff,â€ Gilbert said.
