Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team, Quicken Loans mortgage lenders, and co-owner of 100 Thieves, has been hospitalized with stroke-like symptoms, as reported by multiple outlets.
The Cavs owner was checked into the Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital early on Sunday morning, after allegedly suffering from stroke-like symptoms.
Quicken Loans issued a statement to The Detroit News shortly after his admittance, explaining that Gilbert “received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with Dan for a speedy recovery."

In 2017, Gilbert made a multi-million dollar investment into 100T, which was announced on Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag’s YouTube channel in November of that year. With the investment, Gilbert became a co-owner of the team, alongside Nadeshot, and the team went on to secure a spot in the 2018 NA LCS season.
This wasn’t Gilbert’s first venture into esports. In 2017, along with 16 other NBA teams, the Cavaliers entered into the NBA 2K League—a joint venture between the National Basketball Association and Take-Two Interactive.
In 2018, talent manager Scott Samuel “Scooter” Braun and rapper Aubrey Drake Graham (better known as Drake) would join Gilbert and Nadeshot as co-owners after an additional round of funding.
Further details on Gilbert’s current condition have not been released, and in a statement to The Detroit News, his family have requested privacy while he recuperates.
