08:57 AM ET 09.19 | Two months after "The Decision," every LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers jersey is sold out on Fathead.com, the company owned by Cavs owner Dan Gilbert. The jerseys were immediately reduced from $99.99 to $17.41, apparently because 1741 was the birth year of Benedict Arnold.

Who cares? Your team sucked, Gilbert. Le Bron left because you have no chance of ever winning a title, you dumb ****. LeBron is an Ahole too, but you never put together a good enough team to win a title.

Gilbert came across a fool and made all the money he could make with him. Then Pat Riley fooled Lebron into taking a paycut to get all the money he could get from him. I wish he burned those jerseys though.

This Guy is real a Racist ( I really suspect he is a **** Member), and every black player should move out from that Team. Gilbert is inhuman and blind CAVS fans are crazy, they are being brainwashed. I Think if Gilbert twits all the fans to walk naked in a snowstorm day they will do it with pleasure. I wish LBJ knew how Gilbert thinks deep down. I am happier and happier by LBJ decision to move south for Good. By the way, what's the value of this team after LBJ Departure ? I may make an offer and the Team to Canada. I am on waiting list for LBJ new jersey from Florida, I will 200 and give them to homeless people in ohio, I will make sure long sleeves for the winter and all of them XXL. hahahaha Poor Cleveland, what's going on ???

Dan Gilbert is a first class jerk, his organization had 7 years to build a winner around James, even the Nets could have made that happen. Now, he wants blame anyone he can to save face, what a looser.

That's a good question. CAVS is in urgent need of petty cash, don't be surprised if they start selling Dan Gilbert shirt for a buck. CAVS lost control from Dan Jerk Gilbert all way to the fans. CAVS Franchise is spinning out of control, but CAVS fans who knows you may land another great player in few decades.
