The text of the picture says “With all the injuries and playing hurt… I wouldn’t want to leave Cleveland this way, it would hurt me to leave that way. I feel like the fans have always shown love to me, and this is home, basically. I apologize for the product I put out there on the floor. Daniel Gibson, 2013″.

Gibson posted his lowest points per game average since his rookie season in 2012-2013. He played in 46 of the Cavaliers’ 82 games. He averaged 5.4 points and 1.8 assists.

Gibson turned himself into police on July 29th in New Orleans, after being charged with second degree battery.

    only the ’95 Indians, ’97 Indians, and ’07 Cavs have even gotten to the championship round in their sport in Cleveland in my lifetime. Those ’07 Cavs don’t get there without Gibson (also the leading scorer in the 2 games in SA in those Finals).

    What has happened since that year is unfortunate. He never became the player we hoped he would, but no reason to hate.

    Daniel Gibson did not live up to the contract. Weird to see a player apologize. Sizemore?!

    It’s a free country I can h8 if I want to, h8 if I want to! Gibson is from Texas so you might be a tad bias but hey, you can remember 2007 however you want it’s a free country!

    I really wish the best for Gibson, he seems like a real classy player and person.

    to much Keisha Cole not enough basketball and LeBron will make anyone look great what were his numbers when LeBron left?

  • nathanielwade

    Maybe you missed the part of life where you were taught to be informed on topics before commenting on them lest your idiocy be on display?

    Sticking up for your wife and putting a drunk guy in his place for disrespecting her is not some horrible thing that makes Boobie somehow less of a man.

  • Matt

    The year after lebrons departure was actually boobies best year. he started out decent in 11-12 season but these constant injuries just took him out of it and hes been down ever since. Please make sure your info is intact before you comment in order to preserve your integrity. K thanks bro!

    He did have a bad season but I like Gibson. When he is healthy and allowed to play, he has some pretty good shots and moves the ball.
