  • Mark Cuban on if Mavericks kneel during national anthem: ‘Hopefully, I’d join them’

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said kneeling during the national anthem wouldn’t have kept Colin Kaepernick off an NBA roster. That was a questionable claim that nobody tested. No NBA players emulated Kaepernick’s controversial demonstration (which protested racism, particularly through police brutality). But Cuban is now even more directly supporting players – particularly on Dallas – if they kneel during the anthem. Cuban, via ESPN: “If they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them. Hopefully I’d join them,” Cuban said. NBA rules state that players and coaches must stand for the national anthem, but...

    Noted Maverick Mark Cuban is a fan of Donald Trump's presidential candidacy. And, writing on something called Cyber Dust, Cuban succinctly and effectively explained the Trumpian appeal. Here it is: I don't care what his actual positions are. I don't care if he says the wrong thing. He says what's on his mind. He gives honest answers rather than prepared answers. This is more important than anything any candidate has done in years. That's a remarkable admission. "I don't care what his actual positions are," Cuban said. "I don't care if he says the wrong thing." And, it affirms my...

    Mark Cuban, the unhinged star of Shark Tank and Hillary Clinton Fanboy, apparently has a dark and disturbing past of abusing and sexually accosting women. Cuban, who promoted teen porn series “Girls Gone Wild,” and is also famous for saying that he’d “cross the street if he saw a black person in a hoodie,” is Hillary’s VIP GUEST at Monday’s debate. It’s disturbing that she would invite someone with a dark and disturbing anti-woman past – however, it gets worse. A recently uncovered photo of Mark Cuban pulling a woman’s hair, while exposing himself has emerged.

    An attorney for a former employee of the American Airlines Center in Dallas wants to depose Mavericks owner Mark Cuban regarding allegations of racial discrimination, including an incident involving a noose found at the arena in 2011. Michelle Newsome was fired last year after 13 years with the Arena Operating Company, which manages the American Airlines Center, and she filed a petition Thursday in Dallas County indicating she’s “seeking information regarding Cuban’s knowledge of and/or passive or active encouragement of [or conspiracy regarding] sexual harassment and race discrimination that has been occurring at AAC and adversely affecting employees,” the Dallas...

    Despite the fact that politicians like U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have made it a point to call out the top 0.1%, not everyone agrees with their philosophies. Billionaire Mark Cuban implied that had they been as successful as him, they might not have as much to say about the ultra-wealthy. He remarked that AOC’s criticism of capitalism is “headline porn” and noted the fact she started a business, a now-defunct publisher called Brook Avenue Press. “Bernie Sanders has a book business, you know, Elizabeth Warren...

    Hillary Clinton says she welcomes businessman and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's interest in potentially becoming her vice presidential running mate. In an interview that aired Sunday, Clinton opened the door wide open to Cuban and other business leaders, who could serve to counter the likely Republican nominee, real estate mogul Donald Trump. "I think we should look widely and broadly. It's not just people in elected office. It is successful businesspeople," Clinton told NBC News's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press." "I am very interested in that." "And I appreciate his openness to it," she added of Cuban's comments....

  • Mavericks surf leads to costly wipeout (Garrett McNamara injured, taken to hospital - VIDEO)

    The surf at Mavericks was at its most treacherous on Thursday, one of the biggest days of recent years. Conditions were far from ideal, and there was no talk of holding the annual big-wave contest at Half Moon Bay's fabled spot. One particular episode, however, got everyone's attention. The biggest waves were steaming in at some 50 feet on the face. It was a clear, relatively windless day, but the ocean was so chopped up from recent storms, very few surfers were out - and even fewer were willing to meet the challenge. One of them was Garrett McNamara, who...

    Mark Cuban has had beef with Donald Trump for a while, and he decided to reignite his issues with the businessman once again. In some thoughts shared on the Cyberdust app for which he is a chief investor, Cuban questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s 2016 presidential bid. Cuban, who owns the Dallas Mavericks and whose net worth is estimated to be north of $3.5 billion, postured that Trump might not have the funds to make a legitimate push for presidency. His theory is based on the difference between theoretical net worth and actual cash assets. Here is what he posted:...

    In today's press conference covering the lifetime ban and $2.5 million fine against Clippers owner Donald Sterling over his racist remarks, a Fox News' The Kelly File reporter asked NBA Commissioner Adam Silver if he was on a "slippery slope." “Should someone lose their team for remarks shared in private? Is this a slippery slope?” Jovian Lien is not the first person to raise the question of freedom of speech in the handing down of punishment against Sterling. On Monday, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban asked the same essential question, also using the phrase "slippery slope." "I think there's a constitution...

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban elaborated on his controversial opinion that the NFL "is 10 years away from an implosion" in a 1,585-word Facebook post published Monday night, upping the ante to include player safety and behavioral issues as additional threats to pro football's future. Cuban's comments about the NFL on Sunday night focused on what he perceives as "greed" by the country's most popular sports league. He contended that the oversaturation of the NFL's expanding television package would eventually turn off fans. That subject was the third of five points in Cuban's Facebook post to explain his prediction for...

    So apparently Mavericks fans don't know how to properly celebrate a championship. They're dancing in the streets, cheering, and generally just having fun. No reports of violence, no cars burning, in short tens of thousands of fans and no riots. Do have some idiots parking on I35 to look over the parade. That's about the worst of it. C'mon, Dallas. Haven't we learned anything from LA about how to celebrate a championship or Vancouver about how to riot? Man, these Texans... /HEAVY sarcasm!
