Check out this excerpt from an article entitled Whistled While They Worked in the May 30th issue of ESPN The Magazine. ESPN’s Kenny Mayne interviews a panel of sports figures notorious for running afoul of the rules, including Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Here’s how the article comes to its conclusion:
Mayne: Are you worried about fallout because you spoke candidly about referees?
Cuban: There’s always a risk of my getting fined. But in this case there’s no solid ground.
Mayne: What if in the transactions it said, “Mark Cuban fined $100,000 for talking to that bastard Kenny Mayne from Seattle, the city we stripped of a franchise”?
Cuban: That would be money well spent.
In the words of Jeffrey Spicoli, “Awesome. Totally awesome.”
Thank you, Mark Cuban.
