Cleveland Cavaliers owners Dan Gilbert apparently still feeling jilted after LeBron James left the franchise at the alter in 2010.

So Gilbert decided to try and procure something blue.

Yahoo Sports! reporting John Calipari rejected a 7-year, 60-million dollar contract to become the franchise's coach and president shortly before re-upping with UK on a 7-year, 52 million dollar deal last week.

The report claims the Harrison twins decision to return to Lexingon played a huge part in getting Calipari to follow suit.

Calipari of course served a coach and president of the then-New Jersey Nets back in the late '90s.
