Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert hit back at his critics after Bill Simmons accused him of stoking the flames of the NBA lockout yesterday.Here’s what Gilbert tweeted last night:

Some of these NBA ‘bloggissists’ flat-out make stuff up and then try to dupe readers into believing their fiction is real. Sad & pathetic.

Yesterday, Simmons tweeted that he heard Gilbert and Suns owner Robert Sarver were “hurting NBA lockout progress from owner’s side.”

He also went after Gilbert for how he runs the Cavs:

Gilbert also overpaid for his team, overpaid players FOR YEARS and would love the current system had LBJ stayed. Now it’s no good for him?
