Blackwolfian Rant: Power is All You Fools Understand! Well, So Be It!

To the goodly gentles of ESPN:

You schmucks!

There, I said it. Once more, I am disappointed in the lie you and LeBron James didst inflict 'pon Mortalkind last night; and, as you can imagine, Blackwolf the Dragonmaster has little else save contempt for you and the lying, cheating, ultra-hyping sons of bitches that call your, quote-unquote, campus, home. Indeed, as I type, I find myself missing dear Marty Schmelky, producer extraordinaire. Upon further review, maybe might not have been such a bad idea for the folks at Cirque du Sol --- I mean, Cirque du Schemlky --- after all. At least, Marty had the good sense to understand what giving the public what they want is all about.

But were the people in New York, New Jersey and Cleveland given what they wanted? NO! All it ended up doing was making a whole mess o' Mortals unhappy! In fact, I now share with ye Dan Gilbert's angry rant that was posted the minute the story broke:

Dear Cleveland, all of Northeast Ohio, and Cleveland Cavaliers supporters, wherever you may be tonight:

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several-day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his "decision" unlike anything ever witnessed in the history of sports; and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team, along with all the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past, and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don't deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much. You deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you all tonight:


You can take that to the bank!

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the Hardware home to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our "motivation" into previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

There are some people who think they ahould go to Heaven but NOT have to die to get there. Sorry, but that's simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home-grown "chosen one" sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And "who" we would want them to grow up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as an antidote to the so-called "curse" on the City of Cleveland, Ohio.

This self-proclaimed former "King" will be taking that "curse" with him down south. And until such time as he does "right" by Cleveland and Ohio, LeBron James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day.....

I PROMISE you all that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will all be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the NBA Championship that you have long deserved, and that is long overdue......

Dan Gilbert
Majority Owner, Cleveland Cavaliers

As you see, Mortals, Dan is not one to take LeBron's betrayal lying down. Neither is your Dragonmaster --- for, once more, I am reminded that it is POWER that you Mortals understand! It is POWER that fuels the destiny of the Human race wherever you turn! And it is POWER, in the end, that is the reason our civilizations were thrust into the world wherein we have suffered from 9/11 onwards and beyond!

Alas! Lord Voldemort was, and is, right: There is neither good nor evil --- there is only POWER, and those too weak to seek it! Fortunately, this Dragonmaster does not number himself amongst the latter! Were I to do so, this blog would simply not be here. I leave ye to dwell and reflect 'pon all that I have heretofore uttered this day. May it serve to stimulate ye. Now have a rotten day.
