Mark Cuban calls for suspension of ref Ken Mauer

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, appalled at a missed call on the opening possession of Tuesday night’s Los Angeles Clippers-Brooklyn Nets game, is publicly calling for the NBA office to discipline referee Ken Mauer. “Suspend him, demote him, make him ref a game in the D-League,” Cuban said during his pregame workout Wednesday night.

Mauer watched as Bogdanovic caught the ball above the top of the 3-point arc, dribbled once with his right hand, picked the ball up, dragged his pivot foot and dribbled again with his left hand before passing to a teammate. “That call? At the beginning of the game? Right in front of him?” Cuban said. “That wasn’t an error in judgment. “Refs are going to miss things because there’s other things going on, but there was nothing else going on. It was the first or second play of the game, and he was standing right there.”

Cuban indicated that Mauer’s missed calls was evidence of a bigger issue, but Cuban declined to be more specific when pressed on what that problem might be. “This wasn’t just a missed call. This was something else,” Cuban said. “I don’t know what it was. Sometimes it’s the problem; sometimes it’s the symptom of a problem. I think this is more reflective of a symptom of a problem.”

“I’m almost ready to get fined after watching that double-dribble yesterday,” said Cuban, who has been fined more than $1.5 million over the years for comments about officiating. “That was a classic. If that was us, I probably would have protested it, even if we would have lost, because then every SportsCenter would have played it over and over and over again. That was ridiculous and hopefully they take action. … That call at the beginning of the game, right in front of him, that wasn’t an error in judgment.”
