Mark Cuban: “It’s not my all-time goal to be president. It’s certainly not my aspiration to have a political office. I wouldn’t run for any other office. Do I think I can be effective? Yes, but I have no desire to be a politician. If I did something, if I ran for office, if I ran for president, it would be because I thought I could have an impact.”
Cuban acknowledged that he would enjoy running against Trump. “In a perfect world, yeah, it would be fun,” Cuban said. “But it’s not a perfect world, and I’m more concerned with what’s best for my family and what’s best for the country.”
Mark Cuban on Dirk Nowitzki: “Maybe this year will be his last year. I tend to think he wants to beat Kobe and be that guy.” Nowitzki is joining Kobe Bryant as the only players in NBA history to play 20 seasons with only one team.
Billionaire businessman and NBA owner Mark Cuban responded to President Donald Trump both calling for NFL owners to “fire” players who protest during the national anthem and uninviting Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry from visiting the White House in an email exchange with Business Insider on Sunday.
“I don’t think people realize how involved in the community every NBA and NFL team is,” Cuban told Business Insider. “We all have community programs and foundations and every single one of those groups has to get involved in politics in order to help get buildings built and programs organized with our communities. We work with our cities to push forward agendas.”
