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].”
