When you’re the owner of a sports franchise that is coming off a heartbreaking loss in the championship game or series, you should probably steer clear of joking about that loss for at least a full 2 to 3 months.  Anything sooner than that is probably too soon for your team’s fan base, as Cavs owner Dan Gilbert learned on Monday.

Get it? The Warriors won the NBA Finals series, 4-1, but the Cavs were winning this meaningless Summer League game. So Gilbert thought it would be a good idea to (jokingly) propose that the two teams extend the series to a best-of-nine.

Here’s how Cavs fans responded to Gilbert’s ill-advised joke:

If Dan Gilbert wants to win back the Cavs’ fan base, it sounds like he’ll need to do less tweeting, and more hiring…like maybe a GM for starters?
