Ball Don't Lie:
Rudy Fernandez has been a frustrating player in his three-year NBA career. He came to Portland after the 2008 Olympics with big expectations and for some time looked entirely capable of meeting them.

I like Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. He’s a passionate owner, he wants the NBA lockout over. He presented a plan which would help the other owners with revenue sharing (it wasn’t accepted but he TRIED) and he does Karaoke!

I LOVE it!!
