If Charles Barkley talking about San Antonio's women isn't enough to get Spurs fan's blood boiling, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's jabs are definitely enough to get it past the boiling point.
During an interview SportsDayDFW, Cuban as he has shown in the past, expressed his "love" for San Antonio's River Walk.
Cuban was asked about teams Mavs fans love to hate. He states first that the fans hate the Miami Heat, but you just had to know he took the opportunity to lob another insult San Antonio's way.
"I think Mavs fans hate the Heat, knowing that it's just a once a year type thing. From an ongoing perspective, the Spurs probably. If you go to San Antonio, they hate us a lot more, I think, than we hate them because it's the only game time. So I think there's a lot more animosity between the Mavs and the Spurs, and they still have that muddy ugly-ass River Walk that you have to contend with."
It has been many years when Cuban first called the Riverwalk an "ugly, muddy-watered thing."
When the team returned to San Antonio back in 2009, he went back to the Riverwalk to see that they were cleaning it up but then was afraid that people would fall in it.
Cuban may have more to worry about aside from San Antonio tourist destinations. He does in fact, run a basketball team.
@RockheadTG,Sorry,but when you open the Pondoras box of ugliness,Mark and the people of Dallas have to except that ugly (Jones n the
Cowboys ) is ugly.....the end !!!
He's just jealous that the small-market SA team has enjoyed more success than the money-loaded Dallas Mavericks. And besides, without San Antonio and its history (battle of the Alamo), Texas and Dallas, would probably not be in existence.
unclassy bastard rants again. all he's doing is making himself look like an a-hole who's trying to make sure that this Mavs-Spurs matchup is still a "BIG" rivalry even for this season. I really hope those Mavs end up struggling and losing and then make their douchebag owner look even more stupid where they'll miss playoffs for the 2nd straight time, which I still believe that Mavs will miss it.
by the way, not our fault that the River Walk doesn't look that pretty considering it's a REAL river. what the hell is Dallas known for?
@jhheinI'm actually referring to something that's not SPORTS related that Dallas was ever famous for. but even if I was including that, is THAT a good thing? sure Cowboys were good in the 90s but ever since have been bad, especially NOW. plus that's Jerry's team who's probably much as delusional as Cuban is right now.
@RockheadTG the TV show Dallas... LOL
@RockheadTG umm hello! have you ever heard of the State Fair of Texas? the The Reunion Tower? the Texas Rangers? FC Dallas? The Cotton Bowl? Not to mention the already known Mavericks, America's Team The DALLAS Cowboys?
@RockheadTG ok, who the hell are you and why did you even bother coming here when this is your FIRST comment here ever on this blog? I clicked on your name and saw that.
first of all, anything SPORTS related does not count, meaning FC Dallas (which who pays attention to soccer?), Rangers, Cotton Bowl, and what should be NO LONGER "America's team" Cowboys. I was referring things significant or historical that's good. and to be honest, never heard of the State Fair, and that tower doesn't seem to be THAT famous to me.
