Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban kept busy during the pandemic. He continues to manage his affairs while he returns. The Cuban donated time, money and resources to fight the new coronavirus. It is setting a fantastic example for MAVs and people all over the world.
Cuban has also appeared for virtual interviews. The last time it took place on WFAN in New York on May 20.
The conversation changed if Cuban was surprised by the offer that allowed the Mavericks to acquire Kristaps Porzingis in January 2019. Here’s what he said.
“A lot. It happens in the right NBA. It’s like James Harden’s trade. Harden is traded by OKC to the Rockets and I’m like, DAMN, why didn’t we even offer this? We weren’t in the mix. No one was. A phone call and Rockets said yes. And this was our call. “
The Cuban went on to say that the Mavericks had expressed interest in KP multiple times over the years. The Knicks had always said no until that phone call in 2019.
Cuban also spoke of his regret for letting Steve Nash go green in 2004. Nash went on to win two MVP awards with the Suns. Cuban called her “the stupidest thing I’ve ever done” in the interview.
