Not only did he kill Skip, but he demolished Stephen A. Smith as well. Loved that bit about his 2 year old breaks down film and knows more about basketball than both of them....hahahaha

I love Mark Cuban. I wished he owned the Redskins. What a joy to listen to. He also gets bonus points for wearing a "Smurfs" t-shirt on ESPN. Hands down, the best owner of all the pro-sports.


Smoot, can you put in a few good words at ESPN to get Cuban hired on full time? Thanks in advance.

Cuban is the shit! Say what u want but the guy has won a championship and is a great owner of the Mavs.

Well, he is a bit of an ass. But that's besides the point. Plus, he often says many of the same things JQ public says...and the rest of the time, JQ Public doesn't really hear what he's saying anyway

Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs

Cuban is right how the media gets hung up on stupid crap like: a team or particular player "wanted it more", and they run with it like it's a legit talking point over x's and o's.

Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs

It annoys me when anyone says that. There's no way of knowing

Not sure if we saw the same video between him and Skip then but Skip got owned on national TV. He got exposed for being "entertainer" instead of doing his job and watching film like a good sports journalist probably should. (that is if you are going to be commenting on it personally)

Dude made Skip look like a clueless twit. (which he is)

Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs

You don't know Skip, so you probably shouldn't make an assumption on him.

But whatever, all I'm saying is...it's unfortunate the show (partly due to Skip's own doing) leads people to think Skip has no idea what he's talking about. I 100% guarantee you the conversation they had off-camera was totally different

I speak of Skip's on camera persona, not his off camera one. I don't know Skip so I'm not speaking of his actual knowledge in general. However, once he's in front of the camera, he turns into a clueless twit and makes comments about stuff he really doesn't know or understand, to which Cuban pointed out. I have mad respect for journalist that study film of the games they are commenting on and know what's going on before they comment on it.

edit: I don't doubt for a second their off-camera exchange was much much different.

Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs

He's a victim (again partly self-inflicted) of the show he's on. And that's all I'm going to say about that

Why would he do that to himself though? Hard to imagine a good journalist selling out on being the hated guy, just so he can be famous? (or that is what is appears)

Re: 2012 NBA Playoffs

I think a lot of guys in the media play roles for the sake of whatever show they're on.

He's always been that way. Maybe that's what he thrives on? I don't really know. Sometimes you just have to go where you're put. There are a lot of people who are probably in the wrong spot on-air at ESPN, but such is life everywhere.

Well played Le Batard. Well played.
