#Cavs owner Dan Gilbert regrets putting guarantee in his post-LeBron letter
Gilbert, of course, guaranteed the Cavaliers would win a championship before the Miami Heat. That ended last summer when LeBron James and the Heat won their championship.
"If you’re going to predict something that doesn’t happen and you’re going to do it publicly, you’d for sure take it back," Gilbert said tonight prior to the Cavs' opener. "When that happened when they won, it was the end of the end of the end of that whole thing. Now there’s nothing more to talk about.
"In a way it was like a little bit of a relief. If they didn’t win it, it would’ve been still another thing of who’s going to win it (first)?
"Looking back now, that probably was not the most brilliant thing I’ve ever done in my life."
