PLAYERS: Mark Cuban
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was asked about the NHL Lockout and how he would describe their disagreement.  Mainly because the NBA was locked out for part of last year and went though a similar ordeal.Cuban described it as a Civil War, saying that the Southern hockey teams were losing money and were driving the lockout and that the Northern teams were making money and content with the status-quo.  Oddly enough he was 100% correct on this statement.Then Cuban talks about how the owners could have fixed their problems the last lockout, and how they need to fix their problems now.  He said that they should be embarrassed for not having it fixed and that doing a last minute deal to save the season is not the way to solve the problems or create a good CBA; topping it off by calling it a “clusterf***.”I have to say that I love what Cuban had to say here.  He didn’t try to get involved and act like he knew the particulars of the disagreement, but he did a damn good job of calling the NHL out on their problems.  He knows that the owners and players are killing the league by not having a deal, so why don’t the NHL owners and players know?

Mavericks Rumors: Dallas May Have a Shot at Dwight Howard, But it Would Take Work

The Dallas Mavericks are in a better position than the Los Angeles Lakers as it stands now.  Not many people would have predicted that when the season began.  The Lakers had a healthy roster including Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol.  The Mavericks, on the other hand, were preparing for the first part of their season without Dirk Nowitzki.  Yet despite...

Mavs do their part to spread Christmas cheer

Athletes singing is funny because they, like most of us, are bad at it. But there is something extra funny about watching someone who is so good at one thing be so bad at another. This is part if what makes celebrity softball games so funny. And now the Dallas Mavericks are singing Christmas songs. As you may know, the Mavericks' best player also happens to be German, thus introducing...

The Dallas Mavericks Also Have A Holiday Performance For Everyone

Earlier today we showed you the Houston Rockets stumbling through “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel”. Now, it appears there’s a battle for tone deaf supremacy between Texas squads, as the Dallas Mavericks have unleashed the above version of “Sleigh Ride”. To say O.J.

DeMarcus Cousins fires back at O.J. Mayo

DeMarcus Cousins and O.J. Mayo are in a little bit of a beef right now. Matters began when Cousins punched Mayo in the groin during Monday’s Kings-Mavericks game. Mayo said after the game that the Sacramento center “has mental issues.” He also said Cousins’ immaturity was keeping him from becoming a franchise player. Cousins heard Mayo’s remarks, and he fired back at the...

Boston Celtics Fan Giving ******* on Jumbotron During Game

The Celtics went into double overtime with the Mavericks last night and ended up holding them off 117-115. I've gotta know if this redhead planned this out before she got to the game last night or she was just mad that she was sitting through a double overtime game.  Honestly who does this?  Do you think she was letting Mark Cuban know what she thinks of his team?  Whatever...

Mavericks-Raptors Preview

The Dallas Mavericks have made due without their superstar. The Toronto Raptors have struggled to remain competitive, and it could get worse because of recent injuries. Neither team will be at full-strength Friday night in Toronto, though Dallas figures to have the upper hand against a sliding Raptors team which will be very short-handed. Plus, the Mavericks have won 14 of the...
