Cuban Still Hates International Ball (And Independent Thinking)

Mark Cuban is speaking out again, as his right to do so, this time it's about the Olympics (again). Last weekend Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle announced Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki would miss a week's worth of games to basically get back in shape. Basically Dirk took a very short break between the NBA Finals and playing for Team Germany in the European qualifiers for the...

Cuban calls NBA players in Olympics “epitome of stupidity”

In the ongoing “club vs. country” debate that rages through soccer, basketball and other sports, Mark Cuban has long been clearly on the side of the clubs. Which makes sense because he owns one. He pays a lot of money, hypothetically, to a tall German forward who went and played for his national team this…

Mark Cuban’s Secret To Success

Whenever I think about business, I think of the following Jay-Z line: “I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.” And I’m sure this verse is one of Mark Cuban‘s all-time favorites as well. We’re all out there trying to make it, and some succeed more than others. What does it take to become a [...]

Mark Cuban placed a bid to buy the Dodgers

The Mavericks owner already has an NBA championsip. Now, he's going after a World Series.

Cuban has a plan; Jones has no clue

The Dallas Mavericks' ongoing season of mediocrity and disappointment confirms a simple truth: As an owner, Mark Cuban is far superior to Jerry Jones. Riddled in the Mavs' 11-8 record, in Dirk Nowitzki taking an early-season break to get in shape and the less-than-spectacular additions of Lamar Odom, Vince Carter and Delonte West rests the genius of Cuban and the shortcomings...

2004-era Mark Cuban didn’t think Steve Nash would still be walking at this point

The league churns along, people tend to forget, and rumor turns into legend turns into "fact." I'm sounding like inarticulate grandpa again, wobbling as he gives the Thanksgiving toast, but we needed to be reminded of long-ago lost context from time to time. Which is why it was nice of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to remind us of why, exactly, he declined to spend...

Mavs Get Championship Rings Valued at $40,000 a Pop

These sexy ass rings were given to team members and support staff last night for winning the 2010-11 NBA Championship.  The cost to Mark Cuban for these bad boys, which were modeled after the Chicago Blackhawks’ rings from 2010,  is about $1.5 million. Not a bad day for that jeweler!   The rings include the Mavs’ logo, players’ names and numbers and the 2010-11 motto:...

Mavs Welcome Back J.J. Barea To Dallas By Putting A High Chair Near His Locker (Pic)

Diminutive point guard J.J. Barea made his return to Dallas on Wednesday night with his new team, the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the timing of his visit couldn’t have been much better. Coincidence or not, the night Mavericks owner Mark Cuban scheduled the night that the team would receive their championship rings just happened to coincide [...]

Dirk regrets playing at Olympic qualifiers

Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki isn't playing right now and while he's not blaming playing in international competition, he is speaking up about his experience playing the Olympic qualifier this summer (Hat tip to ESPN Dallas' Jeff Caplan for the knowledge). "Playing in the Euros, looking back now was obviously not the right decision, but it was a decision...
