Mark Cuban Gets it Right, Again!

20 Feb

Two trades stand out most in the 2009-2010 season. Two teams benefited when Washington Wizards decided to throw in the white flag. Both the Dallas Mavericks and the Cleveland Cavaliers can thank Gilbert Arenas.

Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have a very real chance of winning it all with Antawn Jamison now at the 4 spot. The future is really all about how fast Jamison can adjust to playing with Lebron James and Big Shaq in the middle. If its a seamless transition, the rest of the league is in some big trouble. James seems to have a lot of confidence in Jamison even after watching him go 0-12 his first game in a Cavs Jersey. Simply put, James is willing to ride this lineup to the championship.


Michael Jordan in Utah? Blame it on Social Media

10 Dec

Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, its Michael Jordan. Maybe, maybe not. It turns out, social media does work, even when the person using it is straight up lying.

When Michael Jordan gave his Hall of Fame speech he mentioned that Bryon Russel motivated him to come back. He also mentioned he didn’t push off of Bryon Russel when the Bulls beat the Jazz in the NBA Finals in 1998 (He did push off). The two had unsettled business.


Mark Cuban’s Kryptonite

9 Dec

Mark Cubans KryptoniteI remember when the Dallas Mavericks were the doormat to the NBA. They were horrible, their uniforms sucked, and their players, well, I don’t remember who played for them. The only notable player that I can remember is Derrick Harper. Such records as 11-71, 13-69, they were far from stellar. Then along came Mark Cuban. He made them stellar.

After Mark Cuban took over the Mavericks in 2000, the Mavericks have made the playoffs 9 out of 10 times (very impressive). The Dallas Mavericks are champions for having turned around their team so quickly. There’s no doubt that they should have been the 2006 NBA Champions. They would have been champions if it weren’t for some ludicrous referring. Those refs were possibly working for the same people that Tim donaghy used to work for.
