Mark Cuban Rumors
In fact, as Mark Cuban built his massive fortune in the ’90s — through sale of his start-ups MicroSolutions and Broadcast.com — and later became the majority stakeholder in the the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, Brian Cuban was more focused on getting high. He remembers during the NBA Finals in 2006, when the Mavericks faced off with the Miami Heat, he was trading championship tickets to his drug dealer. “For years, my success was a good quality cut of cocaine,” Brian tells CNBC Make It.
Brian Cuban, billionaire Mark Cuban’s younger brother, says people often ask him about his work, especially since his brother is a famous entrepreneur. But Brian, 59, isn’t anything like Mark or their younger brother, Jeff. “We’re different people. My brother [Mark] is driven by different things,” Brian tells CNBC Make It. “I’m never going to be a billionaire and I’m okay with that,” Brian says. Brian is a Dallas-based personal injury attorney, author and addiction recovery advocate. For the last 13 years, he has been in recovery from alcohol, cocaine and bulimia.
Cuban during the interview with Kelly also hit the league for poor promotion of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat, which were the least-watched on record. “I don’t think it has anything to do with politics. I just think we don’t have the match-up and the storylines, and we didn’t do a good job promoting it,” he said.
