Mark Cuban Talks Kobe Bryant, Angry Lakers Fans, and Getting Fined

Love him or hate him, there is one thing that cannot be argued about the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Mark Cuban is an interesting guy. When he talks it is kind of hard not to listen.

Cuban was on Leno Wednesday night, and was more than happy to provide some...
