For all the bad mojo that surrounded Cleveland's response to LeBron James' decision to join the Miami Heat two years ago, cooler heads prevailed on Thursday after James and the Heat won the 2012 NBA Championship with a blowout win over the Thunder. Despite my bad joke to the contrary, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert -- who wrote an infamously nasty letter about LeBron's "betrayal" back in 2010 -- tweeted out a congratulatory note to both teams in the Finals.
Great NBA season. Enjoyedplayoffs. Congratulations to Miami & OKC for an exciting Finals. Back to work on next weeks promising Cavs draft.— Dan Gilbert (@cavsdan) June 22, 2012
Kevin Arnovitz noted a bit later that the term "Congrats LeBron" was trending in Cleveland. I'm happy to report that it appears we have all moved on from The Decision ... right?
