Mark Cuban, the bombastic billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, was on a Los Angeles radio show where he told host Fred Roggin that, “You know me, Fred. Personally, I just hope they suck forever.”
Cuban was talking about the Los Angeles Lakers and their 1-9 start, the worst start in franchise history.
It’s hard for me to put into words how much I dislike Mark Cuban. The guy is a neverending sound bite of stupidity. He craves attention so much that he just can’t help from saying stupid things, for example, going on a Los Angeles radio show and telling listeners that you hope their favorite sports team sucks forever. Why is he on a Los Angeles radio show? Why is he talking about a team other than his Dallas Mavericks?
What other owner in professional sports would do that? Cuban is always putting himself out there, trying to get attention. I couldn’t even tell you how owns the two other NBA teams in Texas, the Houston Rockets or the San Antonio Spurs. I’m sure I could easily find out who owns those two teams on Wikipedia or over at Ask Jeeves, but that’s not the point. The point is that most teams in the NBA have owners who don’t try to steal the spotlight from the teams they own. Why can’t Cuban be more like the owners of those two franchises?
Because he’s an attention whore, that’s why.
