Gotta say the guy has great timing. Getting out of companies when they are at their peak. He also brought excitement to the Mavericks. Kind of like Don King of the NBA.

i wish the MLB would let him get involved in baseball. I wish he would buy the Rockies, the ****ing Monforts are some of the ****tiest owners in all of sports.

He provides hope to all nerds who were humiliated on the basketball court, football field, etc. He is living proof that if you suck at sports delve into computers and business. Then buy those punks and act like you belong.

I wish he would take ownership of the woeful Pittsburgh Pirates since he has ties to the Pittsburgh area. Maybe then they wouldn't be the AAA club for the Red Sox and Yankees.

You have to admit he is a hell of a great business man though.

In 2003, Cuban established the Fallen Patriot Fund, which provides financial support to the families of soldiers KIA or seriously wounded in Iraq. For some time back then, he personally matched all contributions made by the public. I figured it was a good place to give since the amount would be doubled.

So, yeah, that's a good thing he did and if I saw him tonight I would thank him for doing it.

p.s. I have no idea whether or not this fund is still active or if he is still involved with it. Basketball-wise, I don't like him.

Honestly, once you scrape through the thick layer of scum that seems to adhere to him, he's probably got parts of his heart that haven't turned rotten.

What other owner would do this? Do you think Clark Hunt would be caught dead giving Dwayne Bowe or Matt Cassel a piggyback ride? Can you picture Bob Kraft letting Tom Brady saddle up?

Mark Cuban is one of the world's greatest human beings, period.

Eh, the idea of the owner sitting with the fans, wearing a t-shirt, actively involved is cool. He's such an over the top attention whore most the time, though, that he ultimately detracts from his team. I'll grant him, the NBA reffing situation needs an overhaul, but he seems more interested in making a scene every game as opposed to working for a solution. Plus, yelling at opposing players' mothers? Just unacceptable for a team owner, no matter how emotional the moment was.

If he could learn to act like someone even half his age he'd be one of the coolest owners is sports.

I remember when there was talk of this, but the current ownership rebuffed his offers....I have mixed feelings about that. I thought he put in a bid for the Cubs? Must be MLB rejected him. Too bad too, they wouldn't have if he wasn't such an over the top ass.

Yeah I remember the rumors flying a few years back and I think he was also listed among the names of people who were going to come in a buy the Pens. I just want the Pirates to be competitive again and be able to keep their talent. With all the talent they have traded away they could have a playoff contending team.

Expos syndrome. Signing the young talent to long term contracts (ie. the Cleveland Indian plan) is the only way to beat it past one of those "lightning in a bottle" years. Keep the faith, they cannot suck forever...I know the latest losing streak says otherwise but there is talent there and I really don't think they're all that far away from contending.

The Spurs? Really? They're not much of a threat any longer. They're also some of the most insecure and difficult fans to deal with in any sport. Anti-Mavs/Spurs craptalking is an art between our 2 fanbases. Anything coming from the Nuggets-side of things is pretty tame in comparison. They'll need to build a bit more of a body of work to be up there with the Spurs, though. One year and a single playoff matchup isn't much to go on.

We have more reason to hate the Spurs as well anyway. Hell I hate them (especially Ginobli "I'm going to do a back flip dive when someone pokes me").

Good things about Mark Cuban.

1. He doesnt live in my neighborhood.

2. He doesnt own the team I root for.

3. He isnt my employer.

4. He doesnt sit next to me at sporting events.

5. He isnt married to my sister or my daughter.

6. Any time he talks, I have an option to turn off the TV, radio, etc.

Sorry, I am running outta good attributes here.
