Credit is due to ESPN's Bill Simmons on this one. ....What LeBron did to the Cavs and Cleveland is almost exactly the same thing as what Hulk Hogan did to WCW and the fans in the infamous NWO angle back in 1996. I know Pro Wrestling can be a corny scripted soap opera (with great athletes) but tell me you didn't just get goose bumps when Bobby Heenan screams, "Hulk Hogan has betrayed WCW...he is the third man in this picture!!"

LeBron isn't "The King" he's "The Third Man!!!!"

Below is a copy of the letter Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert wrote to the fans of 
Statement From Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert
“I would like to say thanks for the incredible outpouring of support by the numerous loyal and passionate Cavaliers fans who have offered to contribute to paying the recent fine I was assessed by the NBA.

The humbling offer by so many is another reflection of the strength of Cavs fans and the people who live and work in this region and are always the first to step up and have each other’s back.

I will pay this fine myself, but would be grateful and highly appreciative for any fan who redirects the dollars they kindly offered to contribute towards this fine to the Cavaliers Youth Fund, which will positively impact our region’s kids through the numerous local charitable groups the Cavaliers Youth Fund supports.”

Donation information: Fans can make checks payable to the Cavaliers Youth Fund and send them to the attention of: CYF, One Center Court, Cleveland, OH 44115. They can also make a donation on-line at
