ESPN- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is at high risk to be fined by the league before the month is out. So says Mark Cuban. In an interview with this week to reflect on David Stern’s 30-year run as NBA commissioner, which ends Feb. 1, Cuban said he has been telling Stern for months that he is determined to get dinged one last time before his longtime foil leaves his post. “We talk about it all the time,” Cuban said. “I’m going to have one final fine before he leaves.” Cuban has been assessed 19 league fines that were made public, 13 of which were triggered by either criticizing referees or interacting with them in ways the NBA deemed inappropriate. And those known fines have cost Cuban in excess of $1.8 million in fines during his 14 years of ownership. The most expensive was the infamous $500,000 that Cuban was docked in January 2002 for declaring he wouldn’t hire then-NBA head of officiating Ed Rush to manage a Dairy Queen. The most recent was a $50,000 fine assessed in January 2013 after Cuban responded to a home loss to New Orleans by tweeting: “Im sorry NBA fans. Ive tried for 13 years to fix the officiating in this league and I have failed miserably. Any Suggestions ? I need help.”
I fucking love the Cubes. The most present and vocal owner in all of Sports, shows up on Entourage to buy tequila companies, tries to buy baseball teams as a weekend hobby, and loves doing whatever the fuck he wants whenever he wants and just pays for the fines out of his ashtray. And now he has shown that shelling out almost 2 million in fines is such a game to him he plans on getting another fine as a goodbye present to David Stern. If I had billions of dollars I would probably do the same thing (if I were still alive. If I had even 1 mil in the bank I’m sure I’d be dead from alcohol/cocaine/strippers/hookers/gambling/etc.) One can only hope Cuban does something ridiculous like bang Stern’s wife center court as the Mavs drop another game because I’m pretty sure they suck dick this year.
