When it comes to team building, when it comes to this organization, what’s changed the biggest over the years? Mark Cuban: “Just the kids, right? The guys, they’re different. When I first got in, it was a very macho industry and we we’re just coming out of the 90s. And you had guys who just beat the hell out of each other. It was all about who was tough and who wasn’t. You had Shaq banging on people you had Alonzo Mourning. Patrick Ewing was at the end of his career. But, you had guys that were just all about the physical and what kind of dominance could you establish in the paint. And remember all the grief that Dirk used to get, ‘oh, he can’t — why isn’t he in the paint? Why isn’t he in the paint?’ And and that’s changed.”
