Despite the tension between Rockets fans and Parsons, he insists there is no bad blood. “This was home for me for three years, so I have no hard feelings toward them,” Parsons said. “It obviously got a little ugly during free agency, but (Rockets general manager) Daryl (Morey) told me it was going to, so it didn’t surprise anyone. “That’s just how it goes and it’s business, and at the end of the day, my friendship with these guys will stay the same.” Houston Chronicle

Coach Rick Carlisle wasn't talking out of school, but he kind of put the onus on Cuban when he said that new Houston Rocket Jason Terry will be immortalized at American Airlines Center someday. "He's one of the all-time great Maverick players," Carlisle said. "No doubt about that. His number will be retired one day. I have no doubt about that. I have strong feelings because he and I were very close." Dallas Morning News

In an op-ed piece in the New York Times earlier this month, Silver lobbied for the federal government to allow states to authorize betting on professional sports, subject to strict regulatory requirements and technological safeguards. "I agree 100 percent," Cuban said Saturday night before the Mavericks lost 95-92 to the Houston Rockets. "I think we're the world's biggest hypocrites when we say, 'Oh, we don't want you betting on our games,' and then we get all excited about the sports betting line and people go to Vegas on trips won from the NBA or NFL. I mean, it's hugely hypocritical. "I just think that Adam did the exact right thing. I think by focusing on the federal regulations and making the changes there, that it will change. It's just a question of when. ESPN.com

"I think it'll be legalized in casinos (outside Nevada)," he said. "Then we'll charge the casinos for information sources, video sources. All you got to do is look overseas. You can go and legally bet on the NBA in the UK and other countries and they're actually big customers of NBA video. The gambling sites overseas can't just show NBA video. That would be copyright violations. So they must be paying for it. You got a template already where it's legal in the rest of the world other than North America." Dallas Morning News

Mark Berman: Mark Cuban on relationship between Rockets/Mavs: "I absolutely hate 'em. I get so mad every time I hear the word Houston. I won't even go to the restaurant Houston's. I made them change the name of the 1 close to me. So now it's some other name.(laughs) I'm serious. The way it was said & the way it'll B read will B totally different.

Could a player make $24 million in the NBA's current punitive financial climate (as Bryant does this season) and legitimately say they’re interested in winning? "Yeah, of course, as long as you can convince everybody else that you need to come play for the minimum," Cuban said with a laugh. Cuban has long been poking fun at the Lakers on this topic, once calling them Shaq, Kobe and the "band of merry minimum [-salaried players]" in 2000 during Cuban's first season as an owner. Nowitzki echoed Cuban's point that his deal was about winning, not money. "I wanted to be on a good team," Nowitzki said. "I wanted to compete my last couple of years at the highest level. ESPN.com
