I have a confession to make: I really, really enjoy Mark Cuban's presence in the NBA. I'm probably in the minority, but whenever he speaks out it's at least a partial truth. He has committed another "controversial" act recently which I believe was totally his right to do: He booed Derek Fisher upon his return to Dallas.
"I'll just boo him like hopefully everybody else," Cuban said before the game.
Mavericks fans were on board, too. They booed Fisher when he entered the game with 1:45 left. They then cheered loudly 10 seconds later when the reserve guard was called for his first foul in Oklahoma City's eventual 107-101 win.
