Statement from Cavaliers Chairman Dan Gilbert

The most plausible explanation is that the brand is trolling LeBron James, the National Basketball Association, and its fans by concocting a wild story about a $50,000 fine and getting a little extra attention in the process. Don't be surprised if the Pelicans are not as good come playoff time.
And unlike eight years ago when he ripped James for leaving, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert thanked him. "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform. At least he didn't wait until the end like last time".
Unfortunately for Embiid, throughout James' free-agency journey, it was apparent that chasing a title this year was not a top priority.
He is the best player in the world at the moment.
James gave Cleveland something to remember in his final season.
A transcription of his Lakers and Warriors-related answers is below.
Dwyane Wade (L), LeBron James (C) and Chris Bosh (R) of the Miami Heat celebrate winning Game 7 of the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena June 20, 2013 in Miami, Florida.
Magic Johnson, the Los Angeles Lakers president, purchased a gift for all of his Hollywood friends this week when LeBron James verbally agreed to sign a four-year contract with the franchise. However, it is a bit disappointing that the Lakers followed up this momentous occasion by adding players that don't maximize LeBron's chances of competing for a championship this upcoming season.
Since the beginning of the year, LaVar Ball has been that one person who has been saying that LeBron James would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and join the Los Angeles Lakers and play alongside his son. Unfortunately, that wasn't the only power move as the defending dynasty the Golden State Warriors also strengthen their numbers.
King James is set to dominate the West Coast after securing a four-year deal with the Lakers worth $154M. Rumors that James coveted joining the Lakers had been swirling around the league for quite a while. In this picture, Ball #2 of the Los Angeles Lakers shakes hands with James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers after the game at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on December 14, 2017.
Players can not sign contracts with teams until Friday under National Basketball Association free agency rules.
The dramatic change in the landscape of National Basketball Association title contenders in the eye of Vegas is just absurd. LeBron James officially began his free agency Friday, when he informed the Cavs he would opt out of his deal.
Lukaku will look to add to his group-stage tally of four goals against a Japan defense conceding more than a goal per game. Among the pre-tournament favourites in Russia, Eden Hazard and the Belgians march on to a last-eight meeting with Brazil.
France go into the match after a relatively comfortable group stage and after resting players in their last group match. Messi will have to be at his very best if they are to get past France , who are much better than the Nigerians.
Brazil is undefeated in 4 matches against Mexico in the World Cup , keeping 4 clean sheets against them. With Messi and Ronaldo having packed their bags, Neymar is the final superstar remaining the World Cup .
The new phone has an additional "evaporated layer of brightening film" to bring out that bright (but not too bright) red luster. If anything, the company seems keen on making the flamboyant color a regular option for future would-be OnePlus consumers.
Those measures appear to be aimed at the United States' heartland, which helped lift Trump into the White House. If things escalate, then the hit will be bigger, cutting as much as half a percentage point from growth.
Yann Sommer had to make a superb diving save to deny Berg, and Ekdal squandered a golden opportunity in the 41st minute. The last time Sweden made it this far at the World Cup was in 1994, when the team reached the semifinals.
The smartphone offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage which can be expanded further by inserting a microSD card. The Note 9's S Pen (model EJ-PN960) got a full battery of wireless tests because it's a 2.4GHz Bluetooth LE device.
A second photo captured the moment Cook tried to kiss his grinning bride, who had changed into a lace, lowcut jumper. The Big Bang Theory star officially tied the knot with her fiancé, equestrian Karl Cook , in San Diego.
James can also sign a short-term deal with Cleveland , something he has done each year since returning in 2014. LeBron has expressed serious interest in coming to California to play his last few seasons.
Current World Champions, Germany have failed to score in the first half against South Korea in their Group F World Cup match. Germany ended up last in Group F while Sweden and Mexico advanced to the round of 16.
