LeBron James: Mum on Cavs Owner

7/12/2010 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James gave very short answers -- but answers nonetheless -- to a series of questions our photog asked him in NYC yesterday ... but he didn't utter a word when asked about his former boss, Dan Gilbert.

Maybe he thinks Jesse Jackson said enough already.

The reason he gives such short answers is because long ones would require the ability to string together words and make sentences

Jesse Jackson is the racist. By popping up every time he thinks he can play the race card, he tries to keep himself in the public eye. He uses race to further his own career, or lack of. He really doesn't care about race relations or he would stop calling everything racist and address the things that really matter. Lebron's situation doesn't have any bearing on the average person life and its an insult to compare it to slavery. You're an idiot Jesse.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something - but I don't think the point was that the owner thought he 'owned' LJ and that he wasn't allowed to leave. I thought the owner's complaint was about how he went about it. A contract is a contract and I think we all understand that. But there is also a respectful, mature way of handling situations like this and in my opinion, LJ failed. Side note - 'LBJ' was a president and is not appropriate to be used here.

Don't worry about LeBron! He will have his rings soon enough. Stop hating on this man who is made is own decision whether you liked it or not. Team LeBron

If the owner of the Cavs cared sooo much about winning a championship he would have paid for high caliber players to round out his team. NBA players have contracts for a reason, once they expire either party can move on. Lebron has moved on to bigger & better things. Who would want to work for this idiot after his spoiled brat antics? He has showed his true colors. NBA players do not owe their teams anything once the contract is up. GET OVER IT!!!!
