1 of 2 probowlers on the Browns. Kept the Browns somewhat alive last season. Stayed loyal during his contract negotionations. Went to Kent State.

He has turned on Andre Miller, Carlos Boozer, Lebron James, Darius Miles, Ricky Davis, Mike Brown, Danny Ferry,
No one wants to watch the Dan Gilbert show but he is by far What everyone is talking about in Cleveland, and around the nation about Ohio!
I dont defend anything that Dan Gilbert is doing but it is very entertaining.
I guarantee that Dan Gilbert has more media attention right not than Josh Cribbs. Everyone is talking about Gilbert, every sports site has some article on Gilbert right now, good or bad. We even have a current td talking about it.
Then to make matters even better, do a simple twitter trend search on Gilbert, its one of the top right now. Josh Cribbs, doesnt crack the top 50. To lazy to look further into it. Hell, Lebron is still more popular in Cleveland. Fans hate him, everyone is talking about how they feel betrayed. There is more press on the Gilbert/LBJ feud than Josh Cribbs.
Then you even bring loyalty into your 3 sentence argument, really. Are you trying to make this td about Lebron as well. King James went to the better team, if he stayed in Cleveland the other teams are still better.

Dan Gilbert is getting his 15 minutes right now. Like Landon Donovan got last month after that goal. Doesn't mean Landon was the biggest superstar in America cause he had his flash in the pan moment.
Fact is, who is going to be the star people focus on when they think of that city? Lebron has always been the answer, but now looking at it, it has to be Josh Cribbs.
I bring up loyalty but Ohioans seems to think that if you live in ohio you have to remain there. Cribbs did just that. He exciting, hes young, and from the interviews I have seen, the man has a personality.
Dan Gilbert is a popular name, but I guarentee no one in Cleveland is buying tickets to see Dan Gilbert own a team next season. Cleveland is still a football town and people and since the biggest star on the basketball team is gone, it will go back to its roots.

Your title has, " The biggest star in Cleveland is now..."
You wrote it, you introduced it with that title. You didnt say when Basketball starts, or the NFL, or this next sports season. You said, is now.
Right now, its Dan Gilbert.
Turn on Espn Radio, Sportscenter, any newspaper, si.com, or any other sports site and the Lebron vs Gilbert drama is front page.
I dont have much more to say.
Its Dan Gilbert.
Your list of the 10 Star Power Rating in Cleveland is stupid. Drew Carry was in Cleveland, 10 years ago. Bone Thugs... The Crossroads song came out in 1996.
Why are you talking about things that happened 10-15 years ago. You said NOW in your title!
Now is Dan Gilbert, sorry to bust your chops.
