Mavericks Mark Cuban is Whining

In a recent interview Maverick’s owner Mark Cuban tried to poo-poo the recent upgrades the Lakers have made. With the addition of Howard and Nash, the Lakeshow has become the top contender for the championship. Everyone else realizes this, even if they don’t want to say it out loud.

A lot of teams do a great job of winning the summer, but I never get so antsy about what happens over the summer. I just want to know what happens during the season.”

— Mark Cuban
If that were the case then why in the world were the Mavericks pushing so hard to get Derron Williams and Dwight Howard – THIS SUMMER???

The reality is that Cuban is pissed that the Mavericks took steps backwards in their roster, rather than landing the blockbusters that the Lakers, Nets, Heat, and 76ers did. The loss of Kidd and Terry are devastating to their team, both players were key components to their team chemistry.

It takes great chemistry. … It takes guys wanting to be there. I don’t know if all their guys want to be there.”

Umm…wait, chemistry matters right? I guess your guys didn’t want to be there. Why is that Mark? Why wouldn’t they want to limp through a season and take an early playoff exit because they can’t matchup with OKC, the Lakers, or the Heat? Methinks Mr. Cuban has been sipping that Hateorade a little too much.

Can’t wait for the season opener Mark. We’ll see how each team’s chemistry matches up…professor.
