The only reason Gilbert was mad about the deal is because he is a spiteful little bitch and because it would have potentially taken revenue sharing money out of his pockets if the Lakers fall out of luxury tax range. He had 6 years to put players around LeBron James but never did so LeBron left and devastated the value of his franchise. That is on Glibert and not anyone else. He should worry less about $2-3 million in revenue sharing he would have received from the Lakers and more about improving his own piece of crap team and have it make money on its own.
That move last night is going to cost Stern his job. If he isn't out at some point this year I will be shocked. He already was a major reason for delay during the lockout because of his contentious attitude toward the players. Overstepping his power like this will be a huge black mark on his career just like the Donaghy ref scandal was.
