Show the Caveliers the money Usher!
Seems like Mr. R&B superstar Usher was suppose to be an investor of the Cleveland Cavs when the team was purchased by Dan Gilbert and his investment group earlier this year. Well Usher apparently isn't welcomed anymore in the the Cavs arena. Seems like he has yet to deliver in his investment promise to Dan Gilbert. He purchased a "significant" part of the team and seemed very excited at the press conference.
"I am excited about becoming part of this ownership group and this team," said Usher. "I will be actively involved with the Cavaliers on many levels, including the game experience and our role in the community. I plan to spend a lot of time with the Cavaliers and look for Cleveland to be my second home town. I know all the partners in the ownership group feel the same way."
Maybe he kept showing up to the arena and kept eating too much free food and getting in his buddies for free. So finally the Cavs put a stop to it. According to Forbes his investment in the Cavs is an estimated $9 million. A guy with so much bling and lavish toys, he can certainly afford $9 million. So what gives Usher? Pay the man what you promised. If we had a spare $9 million, we' invest in an up and coming Cavs team with the best player in the NBA to come for along time..King James.
