Only a day after the Dallas Mavericks were the subject of a shocking exposé on the team’s inappropriate workplace environment, Mark Cuban, the team’s multi-billionaire owner, was fined $600,000 by the NBA. The league stated that the fine was for making public comments that were deemed “detrimental.”
From Conservative Post:
Cuban is no stranger to fines, having now amassed around $2.6 million in penalties since purchasing the Mavericks in January 2000.
“I’m probably not supposed to say this,” Cuban said, “but, like, I just had dinner with a bunch of our guys the other night, and here we are, you know, we weren’t competing for the playoffs. I was like, ‘Look, losing is our best option.’ ”
