After Cavalier owner Dan Gilbert posted a hateful letter aimed at LeBron James for choosing Miami over his home team, the NBA slapped a cool fine of $100,000 on him.

In the letter he called James all sorts of derogatory things and promised that the Cavaliers would win a NBA title before James does.

Reverend Jesse Jackson responded to Gilbert’s anger by accusing him of having a slave owner’s mentality.

"He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers…His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway slave. This is an owner employee relationship -- between business partners -- and LeBron honored his contract." (ESPN)

Gilbert kept his response to Jackson short and sweet.

“I strongly disagree with Rev. Jesse Jackson's recent comments and we are not going to engage in any related discussion on it.” (ESPN)

GV Says: Shut up Jesse. Dan is digging a fine enough hole for himself without your help.
