    It was a good gesture. But best believe his azz would've had a sarcastic response if we'd lost in game 6. Same for Parsons.




    IMO this apology should've immediately came after we beat Dallas last series

    I like to think of them as wranglers, cause all they do is hug nutz and make people feel uncomfortable.

    That wasn't an apology. He admitted he was wrong.

    He should be apologizing to Dirk. He spent his money..........poorly

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Chandler Parsons' 2014-15 salary: $14.7 MIL

    Trevor Ariza, Corey Brewer and Josh Smith's 14-15 Houston salaries combined: $15.4 MIL</p>&mdash; Andy Bailey (@AndrewDBailey) <a href="https://twitter.com/AndrewDBailey/status/600061890203627520">May 17, 2015</a></blockquote>

    So I guess flexibility is a better player than Parsons after all.

    I feel like he's being "nice" but then will make a sudden move for one of our assets.

    You should post more often. I am glad you pointed out the nastiness that he brought in towards Morey and Houston. Breaking up a Championship team to go after a bigger player is typical Cuban, that doesn't bother me.

    I hate Cuban and I cringe for every breath he takes. I hope he jammed his thumb we he sent that message and I pray he doesnt wake up tommorow.

    I hate when someone involved in sports does something that they should do and people fall all over themselves to call it "classy." Classy sucks.

    We should apologize to Cuban for hating him. He did us a favor by taking Parsons off our hands. Without that, we would not have come this far.

    If he was the Rockets owner you wouldn't have Harden or Howard. He isn't patient enough to wait for it to develop, and he would have over stepped Morey several times by now.

    I love the passion Cuban has for the NBA and the Mavs and willingness to think outside the box and stand on his own. Still he isn't perfect.

    i will never forgive cuban for what he did in that 1st round series against us.

    so what he pretends to be a sportsman and apologizes.

    one word for you, mark. - who carez!

    Seriously, in hindsight that Bosh trade falling through worked out great for us.

    Who would have ever thought Ariza would have worked out. I guess Brewer and Smith couldn't have been anticipated. Now only had we kept Black instead of Dorsey.

    Everyone gets redeemed today.

    Harden (despite all those TO's and missed shots).
    Howard - man did he turn it around
    Ariza - he's officially an improvement over Parsons.
    Jones - was always a bit in the doghouse - not anymore!
    Josh Smith - has a guy ever transformed himself from a useless scrub who hurts his team to a devastatingly good player who can do everything except hit fts in less than 5 months?

    Morey - can't say his offense is a gimmick any more.

    And last but definitely not least.
    McHale - the guy has outcoached Rivers in the last 3 games. Give him props haters!

    It's all part of Cuban''s damage control campaign.

    "We like where the Mavs are headed, we think we're right on the cusp. Our only problem is we ran into the NBA champions in the first round two years in a row. I think for next year what we need to do is not face the eventual NBA champions in the first round again."

    :p

    Met Cuban at a bar in culver city after they finished shooting shark tank, he gladly took a picture with me and talked to me for a few mins over a beer. He was only there with random production people he didn't seem to know, no big execs

    Totally cool guy

    I only don't loathe Mark Cuban cause Shark Tank got so much better when he joined. :grin:
    But he's still owner of the Mavs :mad:

    if he werent the owner of the Dallas Mavs...i honestly could totally root for him...but since he is affiliated with Dallas...that hate is real.

    Thanks for being a bigger person and realizing how wrong you were about this team.
