DALLAS -- How ancient is Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's opposition to the risk of NBA players participating in the Olympics? It predates Dirk Nowitzki's present conditioning concerns. It predates this decade. It predates Rodrigue Beaubois' international injury issue. Heck, the subject is so time-worn that when Cuban first broached it, Roddy B was 14 years old. It...
