Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested the NBA should do away with fan balloting for the All-Star game, saying the leading total of 1.5 million votes for Golden State's Stephen Curry was so low it was "embarrassing." Cuban said Friday the roster should be expanded to 14 players from the current 12. He said coaches or general managers or both should choose the teams. The outspoken owner said the low total for Curry was evidence that the "system's broken, absolutely, positively broken." "And fans are allowed to vote more than once, right?" Cuban said "That's embarrassing. To think that we couldn't get people to vote enough times. No one even tried to hack it. That's how bored they are." USA Today Sports

Ariza found Curry coming at him kind of amusing, but seemed perplexed by the apparent $2,500 fine the NBA gave him. The Big Lead

A mom’s got to have nice shoes and a great handbag, right? Especially if she’s going to Manhattan to see her son play in the All-Star Game. Sonya Curry’s accessories collection is on the line every time her son takes the floor. For the past three seasons, Stephen Curry and his mother have had a bet involving his turnovers. “I like it,” Curry said. “I’m a competitor, so I like those kind of challenges. It’s a win-win for me. I take care of Mom and I have a lot less turnovers.” San Francisco Chronicle

“It’s a verbal contract,” Sonya Curry said Monday. “Steph likes a challenge.” Sonya came up with the idea of fining her son a few seasons ago, frustrated at watching him lose the ball too many times in one game. She checked with her husband, former NBA guard Dell, on what would be a reasonable number of turnovers to hold Stephen to per game; they settled on three. Anything more than that, he owes his mother: $100 per giveaway. Anything under is subtracted from his total. San Francisco Chronicle
