Back to January 2000. Cuban says he was connected to Perot through former Maverick Mark Aguirre, a close friend of Perot’s right-hand man (and at one point interim Mavericks GM), Frank Zaccanelli. Perot had purchased the Mavericks in 1996 from founding owner Donald Carter. Cuban recalls that negotiations with Perot, such as they were, took less than 15 minutes. Perot named his price. Cuban said yes. That wasn’t even the most memorable part of the courtship. “Ross took me on his helicopter,” Cuban says, “and I’m terrified of heights. It was the first time I was on a helicopter and the last time I’ll ever go on a helicopter.”

The NBA informed teams Monday that players still need to have either received a primary course of a COVID-19 vaccine or been given a medical clearance from getting one in order to play games in Canada, according to a league memo obtained by ESPN. The memo also states that, should players be ineligible to play in games in Canada, teams must list them as, “Out – Health and Safety Protocols,” and that they will lose their pay for any games missed due to not being vaccinated.
This season, the Raptors will play at least 44 games in Canada: preseason games in Edmonton against the Utah Jazz; Montreal against the Boston Celtics; and Toronto against the Chicago Bulls; plus their typical 41 regular-season home games at Scotiabank Arena and any additional playoff games. The same rules apply both to going to Canada to play in a game, as well as for entering the United States. Anyone playing for the Raptors, therefore, would have to be vaccinated in order to play in any game this season. Last season, the Raptors were fully vaccinated.
A few of Fox’s peers also attended the wedding including Sacramento Kings general manager Monte McNair and Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum.
