Fans sell lemonade to support Gilbert
Children in suburban Rocky River sold lemonade Thursday to raise money for Gilbert's cause. They charged 50 cents a cup.
Ten-year-old Molly Sponseller says she and her friends wanted to show support for the Cavs and Gilbert. She says he's "not a bad man."
After James announced last week that he would leave Cleveland for the Miami Heat, Gilbert wrote a searing letter calling the MVP "narcissistic" and "self-promotional." The NBA fined Gilbert.
Gilbert has said that instead of sending him money, fans should donate to the Cleveland Cavaliers Youth Fund. That's where proceeds from the lemonade sales will go.
