The NBA Finals have shifted to Cleveland. The Cavs are happy to be back home where they expect a rowdy crowd for Game 3. LeBron James had to put up with Oracle Arena for the first two games and now Steph Curry and the Warriors need to get a game in Cleveland to take back home court advantage.
Both teams tare hoping the refs will be more consistent in Game 3. They’ve missed calls on both ends, but one particular person took it upon himself to call out the Warriors for their aggressive defense on LeBron. Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cavs has made headlines before and today he took to Twitter to call out Andre Iguodala for his defense on his star player:

As you can see by the picture, Iguodala is tugging on LeBron’s jersey, which is why Gilbert made a joke of it. Gilbert offers Iguodala 20 percent off on a LeBron jersey from their team store. Surely, Iguodala will not find this amusing and this is likely to motivate him before Game 3.
Officiating has been inconsistent, but the Cavs shot 15 more free throws than the Warriors in Game 2, so it wasn’t like the Warriors were getting all the calls. Blaming the officials is the easy scapegoat, but what do you expect from an owner that has a track record of being unprofessional and bitter?

For all you Cavs fans that have selective memory, here’s the jerseys we are talking about:
