Dan Gilbert Rumors
The storybook ending is almost complete. “I think it is different,” Gilbert said of his team’s vibe heading to The Finals. “It’s hard to explain really, but I think it’s a different feeling. The team feels more mature, like they’re expected to be here. LeBron just has a certain calmness about him, a certain leadership that I think permeates throughout the whole team. “They’re celebrating, they’re happy, but they know they have to get back to business. You get so close. It’s four more [wins]. Fifty-two years is a long time. We just got to get four more for the city of Cleveland. That’s what it’s about. “And Lue, he’s so into the game, he’s so focused and he’s so smart. He’s always thinking ahead. My hats are off to him.”
“LeBron, you can just see — I think, anyways — he has a certain calmness to him,” Cavs owner Dan Gilbert told ESPN.com. “Sort of that calmness, confidence, leadership. LeBron James, he doesn’t bite his nails anymore. I don’t if anybody ever noticed that, but he doesn’t. I think that’s for a reason. He just feels like he’s the veteran leader. … So, we got to get four more.”
Yahoo appears to be making progress in efforts to sell itself, despite some initial skepticism. The latest piece of evidence: Among those vying for the company is the unusual combination of the investor Warren E. Buffett and Dan Gilbert, the founder of Quicken Loans and owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
That consortium is one of several suitors that have moved into the second round of bidding for Yahoo, according to people briefed on the matter. Mr. Gilbert is leading the bid, said the people, who were not authorized to speak publicly. Mr. Buffett’s conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway, is offering to provide financing, as he has done with the investment firm 3G Capital in its takeovers of H. J. Heinz and Kraft, and is leaving the negotiations to Mr. Gilbert, according to the people.
