Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has never held back in letting his feelings be known about the city of San Antonio and the Spurs.
He has made fun of San Antonio's famed Riverwalk, and even admitted he hates the Spurs. Needlessly to say, Spurs fans love to hate Cuban. Not only that, his remarks just add fuel to the Spurs-Mavs rivalry.
So with that being said, the following video might be to the delight of Spurs fans looking to fire back at Cuban.
Check out the Mavs owner seemingly inebriated, and mingling with people at the club young enough to be his own kids. My favorite part, when he slumps back and the wall stops his fall.
You know, for as much as Spurs fans might be enjoying this video, I got to say, I might be the same way if I was filthy rich and owned an NBA team.
As a rabid Spurs fan, I will forever dislike Mark Cuban. Living in Dallas for the past 5 months though working on a documentary here, I've gotten to hear a lot of reasons why people in Dallas flat out LOVE this guy. And while I may not agree with most of their reasons, their love for him his made me respect him just a TINY bit.
Sure the Mavs only have one championship during Cuban's tenure, but that they became competitive from where they were at before Cuban bought them is rather impressive. Of course having Dirk helps, but as we've seen with ownership with the Clippers and the Kings, it does take a certain amount of skill (maybe not much, but a little), to do what Cuban has accomplished with the Mavs. Of course from that standpoint, letting Nash go was not one of his finer moments, and he hasn't been perfect.
But Mavs fans also love this guy because he is, undeniably, rather entertaining. My uncle, a rabid Mavs fan, has told me Cuban sometimes makes walks around the arena before and after the games checking up on, visiting, and taking pictures with fans and kids. If I were to imagine my self looking at that from Mavs fan's perspective, I would have to admit that's pretty cool!
Having said all that, Cuban can kiss our rings and go Gangam style himself into a lake.
@ryankxlu Aside from his on and off the court antics and some of his questionable signings or lack thereof of players, Cuban is hands down one of the best owners in the league. He loves his players, takes ridiculously good care of them, and puts out a good product for his fans. I still hate the guy, but for the most part he is a top-notch owner.
