The Owner Of The Basketball Team Cleveland Cavaliers Just Woke Up After Having A Stroke
CLEVELAND CAVALIERS – Dan Gilbert – the owner of the basketball team “Cleveland Cavaliers” – just woke up after having a stroke last last Sunday.
Cleveland Cavaliers also referred to by many as ‘Cavs’ is a team of professional basketball players based in Cleveland, Ohio. They played against the Golden State Warrior last year for the NBA Finals.
Gilbert bought the team back in 2005. So far, they have played for five NBA Finals. They also won the 2016 title.
Other than these, Geilbert also owns the Cavs’ G League affiliate, the Canton Charge, AHL’s Lake Erie Monsters and the Arena Football League’s Cleveland Gladiators.
Last Sunday, in Detroit, the team had quite a shock after the owner Dan Gilbert was sent to a hospital after having a stroke. But luckily, he is now “awake, responsive and resting comfortably” says Jay Farner – the CEO of Quicken Loans.
Dan Gilbert also founded the Quicken Loans company. The company also made the announcement last Sunday about Gilbert’s situation.
They reported that the 57 year old owner of the Cavaliers “received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably” after the stroke.
After the report, Gilbert has been recovering and his status was updated from the last report which says he had been sent to the hospital after suffering “stroke-like symptoms.”
Updates about Gilbert’s condition are constantly being shared by Farner. In the last update he wrote on Monday, it was stated that his recovery has been positive:
“Dan and his family are immensely grateful to the doctors and nurses whose early intervention is already paying dividends toward his recovery. We will update the public as additional details become known.”
This is according to an article from GMA News.
It was also reported by Farner that Gilbert actually had the stroke while he was already in the hospital. He was taken there by a friend after finding out that he was not feeling well.
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
