Mark Cuban

  1. Cuban thinks Nowitzki can be elite three more years. Dirk not so sure.

    Mar 19, 2013, 4:24 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Scott

    It took a while after he recovered from knee surgery during training camp, but Dirk Nowizki is back to being his old self. In his last five games he’s averaged 19.6 points per game on 50.7 percent shooting and 52.6 percent from three. He’s pulling down 9.2 boards a game, too. Basically, All-Star numbers. So…

  2. Mark Cuban says David Stern was right to fine Spurs

    Mavericks owner Cuban argues a call during NBA basketball game against Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Mark Cuban sticking up for David Stern. Maybe the Mayans were right, the end of the world might be nigh. That said, Cuban will be quick to remind you that the NBA is a business. And the first rule of business is “the customer is always right.” When Gregg Popovich sat Tim Duncan, Tony Parker…

  3. Cuban isn’t all that worried about Nowitzki’s knee

    Oct 18, 2012, 2:23 AM EST

    Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitzki

    Dallas fans should be a little worried — maybe more than a little worried — about Dirk Nowitzki’s swollen knee and if he needs surgery. Because without him Dallas pretty much becomes the O.J. Mayo show, and no matter what you think of him this preseason that movie has been pretty ugly in the past…

  4. Deron Williams says Cuban not meeting with him helped “clinch” Nets deal

    UPDATE 4:55 pm: Mark Cuban and the Mavericks are in Spain for an exhibition game, but when reached by Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com for a response to what Deron Williams said Cuban took the high road. “I’m very happy with the ways thing turned out for the Mavs and wish DWill the best,” Cuban said…

  5. Dirk Nowitzki calls flopping fines “a bunch of crap”

    Oct 4, 2012, 5:18 PM EST

    350x-4

    The new fines for flopping announced by the league are not very popular in Dallas. First Mavericks owner Mark Cuban questioned the impact of the fines and what the fallout would be, and now Dirk Nowitzki has come out and questioned how the league will enforce the rules. From the Dallas Morning News (hat tip…

  6. Cuban says flopping rules may have “unintended consequences”

    Oct 4, 2012, 2:55 PM EST

    Mark Cuban

    It’s just not going to be clean and simple. The NBA announced plans for new fines for flopping (which the union is appealing). The idea of punishing floppers sounds great and it’s an easy move on the most obvious and egregious calls. But most calls fans thinks of as flops are embellishments of real contact,…

  7. The Nets.com site is not exactly what Nets fans expect

    Oct 3, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    netscom-mark-cuban

    The Brooklyn Nets have a really good official team Web site. Ben Couch and the guys provide good content, plus they have all the usual stuff (roster, schedule, etc.) But that’s not what you get if you go to Nets.com. You get what you see to the right (and below). That domain name belongs to…

  8. Odom wants to apologize to Mavs fans, Cuban for last season

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:45 PM EST

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom’s fall from Sixth Man of the Year and NBA title holder to guy the Dallas Mavericks told to just go away and don’t come near the rest of the players was fast and public. Odom invited it all in when he married a Kardashian and became a reality television star, but when he…

Felt it was beyond his power. via Twitter / RicBucher: Lamar Odom, unprompted, told …. So how did that go over, ESPN Dallas? Asked about Odom’s apology Friday evening,…

  10. Mark Cuban thinks O.J. Mayo can be star for Dallas. Of course he does.

    Sep 19, 2012, 2:50 AM EST

    O.J. Mayo

    Mark Cuban is better at selling his product — the Dallas Mavericks and the experience of being their fan — than just about any other owner out there. It’s part of how he turned that franchise around. Sure, he spent so they could be competitive on the court, but also he changed the game and…

  11. Mark Cuban thinks we all need to chill on anointing Lakers

    Sep 12, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban is very, very good at promoting Mark Cuban and with that the Dallas Mavericks. In a marketing world where you increasingly need to be your own brand Cuban is way ahead of the curve. And if there are rival brands to your Mavericks brand — say, the Los Angeles Lakers and their new…

    Mavericks owner Cuban waves to fans before the start of Mavericks versus 76ers NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    “We certainly didn’t achieve all we needed to achieve. I’ve said it multiple times that in the old CBA, financially, teams were drowning in 10 feet of water, now we’re drowning in two feet of water. It’ll be interesting. Obviously the Nets just went out and spent a boatload of money. It’ll be interesting to…

  13. Dirk Nowitzki got another ring… he got married

    Dirk Nowitzki Wurzburg Germany

    I bet Mark Cuban bought them a toaster. A really, really nice and expensive toaster. Dirk Nowitzki now has another ring to go with that one Cuban bought him, he got married last month, the AP confirmed. The 34-year-old Dallas Mavericks star forward has married Jessica Olsson. State District Judge Craig Smith said Wednesday that…

  14. Report: Kidd jilts Mavericks at altar, agrees to deal with Knicks

    Jul 5, 2012, 5:15 PM EST

    Jason Kidd

    Mark Cuban’s “tear it down to build it back up” plan has worked out about as well as Napoleon invading Russia so far. No Deron Williams. No Steve Nash. No Dwight Howard (yet, at least). Jason Terry leaves for Boston. And now Jason Kidd, who the Mavs said they were near a deal with, has jilted…

  15. The Inbounds: Deron Williams and the meaning of Brooklyn cool

    Jul 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    Let’s start here: Deron Williams did not decide to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets because it was his best chance to win an NBA title. And that’s OK. Williams made a lot of comments about how winning a title would dictate his decision. But the mere fact that he limited his options to Brooklyn and…

  16. Rick Carlisle signs extension to stay as Mavericks’ coach

    May 15, 2012, 1:57 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Not that there was much doubt this was coming — what happened with the Mavericks this season was not on coach Rick Carlisle — but now it is official. The Mavericks have reached a deal on a contract extension with Carlisle, team owner Mark Cuban confirmed to ESPNDallas.com. This is reportedly also a four-year deal,…

  17. Cuban says new labor agreement forced Dallas changes

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Here’s the thing, he’s right. Mostly. Before the Dallas Mavericks were swept out of the playoffs by the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cuban went on the defensive talking to the media. He had heard the statements from the media and others saying he and his franchise gave up winning the title the day they didn’t re-sign…

    Mavericks owner Cuban waves to fans before the start of Mavericks versus 76ers NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    There will not be sponsors names across the chest of NBA teams next season. The NBA will not look like the English Premiere League. But come the 2013-14 season… maybe. At their meetings this week in New York, NBA owners had what Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver called a “robust” discussion about the idea of putting…

  19. Report: Odom, Cuban had locker-room argument before Odom’s departure

    Apr 10, 2012, 4:49 PM EST

    Mark Cuban

    ESPN Dallas’ Tim McMahon and Marc Stein have the report: At halftime of his final game with the Dallas Mavericks Saturday night, Lamar Odom had an angry exchange with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban in the visitors’ locker room in Memphis, according to sources familiar with the discussion. Sources told ESPNDallas.com that the heated words were “the culmination” of an…

  20. Mark Cuban would like to see NBA age limit increased, too

    Apr 6, 2012, 1:14 PM EST

    Mavericks owner Cuban waves to fans before the start of Mavericks versus 76ers NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    A. Owners love the idea of a higher age limit in the NBA — it gives them more time to see how a player matures, allows more time to scout them so taking the player is less of a gamble, and it lets the NCAA do a couple years of marketing to create names for…

    It was a long winter in Minnesota, where the creative types were locked up inside for too long going a little stir crazy. That’s our best explaination for the Timberwolves latest advertising campaign. It is sort of a riff on Mystery Science Theater 3000 — or really, a direct rip of Woody Allen’s “What’s Up…

  22. Mark Cuban: Still a fan of putting ads on NBA Jerseys

    I hate to tell you this, but it’s going to happen someday — there will be corporate advertising on NBA jerseys. How soon may be decided when the Board of Governors (read: the owners) meet next month to discuss league business. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been pushing for the idea for a while…

  23. Report: Odom asked Mavericks to buy him out last month

    Mar 19, 2012, 1:10 PM EST

    Lamar Odom, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen

    Lamar Odom is not a player that does a great job compartmentalizing his personal life from basketball. What happens off the court impacts him on it. With a host of personal issues — a car he was riding in last summer hitting and killing a boy in New York, a health scare with his father,…

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Less than a day after a loss to the Suns on national television in which he was angry over being benched late, Jason Terry was outspoken again Friday night. This time he didn’t mince words about the state of the Mavericks after a loss to the Kings. I say again, the Kings. (A game, I…

  25. Mark Cuban still has Odom’s back. That will not change.

    Mar 7, 2012, 1:40 AM EST

    Lamar Odom

    Mark Cuban has worked hard to change the culture around the Dallas Mavericks into a place players want to be. A place where they are comfortable and can thrive in part because they know management has their back. It hasn’t worked that way for Lamar Odom — he has not played well since coming to…
