Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel “Boobie” Gibson said Friday that he has no problem with what Barnes did because he would have done the same thing. “You don’t want nobody that’s been around you’’ dating your former girlfriend or wife, Gibson told Power 105.1 radio. “You crossing the line’’ by dating them. Asked what he would do if he was in a similar situation, he said, “I’m doing it, too,’’ referring to the attack.
Storyline: Barnes-Fisher Incident
Gibson joined Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show in New York City Friday morning to announce he was leaving the NBA to pursue a career as a rapper. To be clear, Gibson hasn’t played in the NBA since a stint with the Cavs during the 2012-2013 season. Thus, some people on Twitter are suggesting the NBA actually quit Gibson before he could quit the NBA. “I’m gonna give up my NBA career to start rapping,” Gibson said on air. The response from “The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God was somewhat comical:
While news of LeBron James’ $17 million listing has been leading real estate headlines, new teammate and fellow all-star Kyrie Irving has made a move of his own, buying a Westlake, Ohio, home from former Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson and his estranged wife, singer-songwriter Keyshia Cole. The 22-year-old point guard paid $800,000 for the two-story residence, found on more than half an acre west of Quicken Loans Arena. Gibson paid $1.25 million for the property in August 2009 and had asked as much as $1.1 million for the home last year.
Do you think it will be a challenge getting back to the league? Daniel Gibson: I definitely have to prove myself over again. These teams want to know why. Teams were contacting me at the deadline to see if I wanted to comeback for a 10-day contract. I was really hiding out. Nobody really knew what was going on with me. So I know I got to come back and prove myself. I know it will be difficult, but with the mind frame that I’m in, I know I can accomplish whatever it is I want to do.
Former Cavs guard Daniel Gibson took in the weekend’s events and said rumors of his retirement have been greatly exaggerated. “People just wonder what I’m doing,” he said, flashing his trademark smile. So, what is he doing? “I haven’t worked out for any teams,” he said. “I just want to be 100 percent before I do any of that. I play a lot, but I’m not there yet. When I get there, I’ll play. I’m working on myself, so when I do come back and play basketball, it’s at a level I’m comfortable with. I’m not trying to just play. I want to play at a high level. That’s what I miss. “I’m just taking my time with it. Last month, with all the guys who got hurt, I got flooded with calls to come in for 10 days. I just want to be in control of the situation.”
