It's the last line in Chad Ford's lottery notes: "If I'm Cavs owner Dan Gilbert," Ford writes, "I'm really sweating losing LeBron James in two years" to Jay-Z and the Nets. And it isn't just Lebron: "Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant and Rudy Gay were absolutely mesmerized by the guy" at the lottery. Wrote Ford: "If the Nets can get under the cap and use Jay-Z as a pitch man -- he could very well become one of the most powerful owners in the league." Gilbert says he's not worried.
