Terry: My roommate was Erick Dampier, and Dirk’s roommate was Darrell Armstrong. You can ask Dirk to this day — that didn’t work because Darrell doesn’t sleep, and he couldn’t get no rest. Those guys stayed up and watched TV all night. I don’t know if that quite worked out. And mine was Damp, and Damp doesn’t talk. So, here we were, trying to figure out how we were going to win Game 4 and we were in the room with guys who wouldn’t rest or wouldn’t hang out.
Cuban said he has no issues paying players such exorbitant salaries because that is the price of a championship. “What’s a championship worth?” he said. “I always look at it as a team. The biggest mistake people make in this business is they say this player is worth ‘X.’ That’s never the case. When you insert that player as one of 15, if he can increase the value of [the team], he’s cheap. “I remember back when we [acquired] Erick Dampier [in the middle of a $49 million contract] and everybody said we were idiots. Without that big body, we don’t go to the Finals, and we still should have won that Finals if it weren’t for three blind mice [i.e. the officials].”
