In the condensed 66-game NBA schedule this year, the Dallas Mavericks are not scheduled to visit the Washington Wizards.
That trip to Washington D.C. also means the traditional visit to the White House for the NBA champions — Mark Cuban has worked and waited a long time for his team to win a title and he wants all the perks. White House trip included.
“There’s no point in calling them. It’s bull—- by the league not to schedule it,” Cuban said. “I figured I’d do it myself since the league wasn’t smart enough to figure it out. How can you be that stupid? All you’ve got to do is when you’re putting in the scheduling software, say Dallas at Washington, yes. They managed to get Dallas and Miami and all the games set on certain days.”
Hey Cuban: If you want to make sure you get to Washington, don’t lock the players out and play hardball costing a couple months of the season. Problem solved.
Actually, the problem was already solved and the Mavericks will be there next Monday. It’s a stopover on a road trip that includes Detroit and Boston and the team set everything up itself. The league says it worked with the team to set the whole thing up.
