Gilbert Calls Out Tom Knott, George Bush

Gilbert's new target. (Reuters)

After promising he was done blogging this season, Gilbert struck again last night, lobbing another grenade at Tom Knott and also setting his sights on George W. Bush. Like the Wiz don't have enough trouble attracting fans in D.C. Plus, Gil revealed that he was nearly fined/suspended for wearing his customized shoes. In sum:

On the President and the Cavs:
"We got to be Bush. We got to be Bush-league. We're having everybody talking about the war, when we just want to get the oil. We're Bushing it. That's all we're doing. We're trying distract LeBron over here while we try to get some wins over there. That's all we're doing."

On Ramon Sessions having another great game: "Hey, whoever on Chicago he did that on, I feel sorry for you, because Tom Knott is going to kill you. For him to hit the game winner on me and cause Knott to call me every name in the book, I feel sorry for what Knott is going to do to the player on the Bulls who let a D-Leaguer go off for 20 points and 24 assists. Tom Knott's favorite player, Steve Nash, didn't have those numbers this year and he has Shaq and Amare! You know? So, to my D-League friend, welcome to the NBA, Mr. Sessions. It don't matter where you start, Tommmm. It's where you finish, Knotttt."

On his shoe battles with Stu Jackson: "Stu hit me with the word that I didn't want to hear: suspension. I thought about playing a little reverse psychology on him. I was going to wear a new non-team colors GilIIZeros shoe after the phone call in my next game. Then he was going to call me back and be like, "You're going to be suspended for the next game" when the thing is that I was going to sit out the next game anyway. You see? You feel me? But, I would end up getting fined too. And I didn't want to get the fine and the suspension. He just told me to wear the team color shoes from now on. I wore the chrome and silver ones, the Undrcrwn version, so I hit him with, "Come on, Stu ... chrome is the new white!" But I don't think he was falling for that. "

When Gil announced he was no longer blogging, I had planned to make up fake Gilbert blogs throughout the playoffs, but I have to confess I never thought of the "bushing it" line. He's gotta be on a watch list after that one.
