LeBron Reportedly Leaving Cavs Because Owner Dan Gilbert Supports Donald Trump
On Wednesday, prominent NBA writer Chris Sheridan, who broke the 2014 news that LeBron was bolting from Miami to go back to Cleveland, took to Twitter and broke some more news involving the superstar.
NBA source said today: “This will be LeBron’s final season in Cleveland. He is 100 percent leaving. Relationship with owners beyond repair.”

LeBron and owner Dan Gilbert’s relationship was rocky immediately after the 2010 ‘Decision,’ when Gilbert wrote a scathing piece about him ‘never winning a title.’
It reportedly got even worse when Gilbert donated $750K to the Donald Trump campaign. LeBron has been highly critical of the President over the past few days following the events in Charlottesville.
Lebron leaving Cleveland because Dan Gilbert supported Trump is completely believable. People are getting divorced over this election

LeBron despises Trump.
