Daniel Gibson is seemingly trying to take the NBA lockout in stride. Not surprising, since the Cavaliers guard has always been known for his upbeat attitude and allegiance to the game. Gibson visited the studios of WKNR radio Wednesday and addressed topics ranging from the lockout to commissioner David Stern to former teammate LeBron James. He also stated the fact he has no plans to follow many of his union brethren and play overseas during the work stoppage. Its not for me, he said on WKNR. If the lockout continues to go for years, then maybe Ill start to think about it. Instead, Gibson has chosen to train in preparation for a possible season, as well as spend the extra time time with his wife, singer Keyshia Cole, and their 1-year old son. Gibson is also shooting a reality television show that features the three of them entitled, Family First. The show, he said, will focus on family values and emphasize the need for families to stay together. A lot of people have lost faith in that, he said. It can work. As for the lockout, Gibson adhered to the rally cry of the union, which decided Monday to hand the matter to the courts. The tough part about the whole thing is since we have chosen to take legal action, I cant comment, he said. "I'm just really looking forward to playing again." He later added, I really wish I could get into it because weve really made a lot of strides in this deal. When asked about Stern, Gibson maintained his fun-loving and non-judgmental tone. Were in business together; he does his job very well, Gibson said. Thats my story and Im sticking to it. Gibson is 6-foot-2 and has played five years in the NBA, all with Cleveland. He averaged a career-high 11.6 points per game in 67 games last season, his first under coach Byron Scott. And Scott is a big reason, Gibson said, for his improved play. Im in love with Byron Scott, he said, laughing. Gibson spent his first four years playing for new Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown, and admitted the two weren't on the same page at the end. Its like night and day, he said of the difference between playing for Scott and Brown. But I think (Brown) will do well with the Lakers. Meanwhile, Gibson made it clear he was like most involved with the Cavs organization, and struggled mightily with James decision to leave for Miami in the summer of 2010. However, Gibson said he recently made peace after sitting down with his grandfather, who read him a passage from the Bible. He basically said, You cant tell me you love God and not your brother, Gibson said. I dont hate LeBron. Do I think he made a good decision? No. But I just want fans to know my heart is in Cleveland. At the same time, Gibson said he doesnt expect NBA fans to come rushing back to support their teams and favorite players once the lockout ends. People dont think about the aftereffects of these negotiations, he said. There will definitely be an adjustment period.
