Mark Cuban Rumors
Mark Cuban: 1) @realDonaldTrump $10mm to the charity of YOUR choice if you let ME interview you for 4 hrs on YOUR policies and their substance. 2) @realDonaldTrump groundrules are that you cant mention the Clintons or discuss anything other than the details and facts of yr plans and 3) no one else is in the room to help. Just me, you and a broadcast crew. Deal? 4) I’ll add an option.If you need it, I’ll write you the check and you can keep the money rather than give it to charity. 5) @realDonaldTrump In the inmortal words of YOU. “What do you have to lose ?”
Cuban told Bloomberg that he was initially so positive about Trump because he liked that he wasn’t a political insider. He also said that he was for anyone who wasn’t Ted Cruz. But when it became clear that Trump was not going to “become more businesslike,” and as Cuban did more research on Clinton, he realized he couldn’t support a man “whose ignorance of these issues scared the [expletive] out of me.” Cuban writes: “I made the mistake of assuming that he had to have some interest in learning and keeping up with world events. That he would make the effort to learn what he didn’t know. I obviously was wrong. I can’t say it enough that learning how to learn is one of the greatest skills anyone can have. It’s why I advocate that everyone go to college. I love being challenged and defending my positions and, when I’m wrong, learning from the exchange. It makes me smarter and better as a businessperson. That’s the key difference between us. Trump never takes on the intellectual challenge. He doesn’t even try. He just talks about having a good brain. :)”
Donald Trump: “Well, I know Mark, and you know, the problem with Mark, he is not smart enough to understand what we are doing. He’s really not smart enough in my opinion to really understand what’s going on. I’ve known him for a long time. He tweets me all the time. He sends me so many different tweets and calls me although I must say not over the last number of months. Because I send — [inaudible] just look — this guys [inaudible] send out so many tweets. I’m just — I’ll have to send you all of the Mark Cuban tweets and conversations. But Mark is not — I really believe — not smart enough to understand what’s going on. He’s a mixed up guy … “
He ended up with a $50 million deal after Mavs owner Mark Cuban insisted on paying the longtime face of the franchise more, although only $5 million is guaranteed in the second season. “He’s been incredibly loyal to me and I’ve shown obviously that I’ve wanted to be here last couple years,” said Nowitzki, who would join Kobe Bryant as the only players to NBA history to play 20 seasons with only one franchise if he completes the contract. “And I think he wanted to reward me in a way. It makes me obviously feel great and feel wanted. I’m happy that I can finish my career here in Dallas, where I always wanted to be, and hopefully finish strong the last couple of years.”
The Hillary Clinton campaign is “horrible” at “driving the [media] conversation” and “sucks at spin,” billionaire businessman Mark Cuban told Business Insider in an interview this week. The owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, who backs the former secretary of state, was defending Clinton over a series of controversies, which included her use of a private email server, allegations of “pay to play” against the Clinton Foundation, and her recent health episode.
Hey girl, heyyy, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s got your back … telling TMZ Sports he’ll never give in to haters who call his NBA camp for female fans sexist. Cuban’s team was flooded on social media after the Mavs tweeted about their annual ‘NBA 101: Basketball for Women’ camp. Tweeters and some mainstream media outlets ripped the event as being patronizing and politically incorrect. TMZ Sports spoke to Cuban, who says, “We asked some of our customers a few years back if we should change the name. They requested we didn’t.” By the way, the annual camp is in its 16th year … and Cuban says the team has no plan to change the name. He adds they’re prepared to add a second class if there’s enough demand.
