While the 57 year old Gilbert is often known for his passionate comments regarding the Cavaliers, he has done a lot for the revitalization of both downtown Cleveland and Detroit. Gilbert recently helped support a bill that would bring insurance reform to the Detroit area. He is a big reason why there has been so much growth in downtown Cleveland since he took over the team in 2005.
Shortly after the Wojnarowski report, Tom Withers of the Associated Press let everyone know that the Gilbert family is asking for privacy right now.
