Washington Generals Invite Dan Gilbert to Play or Coach for Them in Exhibition

The Washington Generals have written a letter to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, inviting him to coach or play in an exhibition game on December 27th against the Harlem Globetrotters. The invitation was a response to an email Gilbert sent to NBA commissioner David Stern, who stopped a Chris Paul to the Lakers trade citing “basketball reasons.” In his email, Gilbert said such a trade would make 25 of the 30 teams in the league just like the Washington Generals. The Generals have lost over 13,000 exhibition games to the Globetrotters.

Here is the invitation from the Generals to Gilbert (click twice to enlarge):

I’d love to see Gilbert play in the game and get pushed around. He is so petty and such a jerk, that would be nice retribution.

Thanks to Hot Clicks for sharing the story.

    I think he should take them up on the offer. It would be about the best damage control for his unnecessary and out of line comment he could do.
