Cuban comments

I don't get all the backlash for these comments he made. I know its probably ESPN/media driven, but I felt like what he was trying to say is that he is going to stick with Dirk, no matter what, like the Lakers are going to stick with Kobe no matter what. Anyone who got "Cuban thinks the Lakers should amnesty Kobe" out of those quotes was really not paying attention...

I saw the title of this

I saw the title of this thread in the forum lobby and thought Fidel Castro had said something interesting about the NBA

Looks like I need to change

Looks like I need to change my big board for this year, Fidel is definitely the best prospect I've seen in this year's draft, looks like a cross between Olajuwon and Ewing :)

That Kobe tweet has to be the greatest tweet of all time, even Cuban himself gave Kobe props for it.

Cuban had a good point

Cuban had a good point regardless of all the backlash. The Lakers are going to be in serious trouble next year if they want to keep this team together. Resigning Dwight would put their salary at $104 million meaning that their luxury tax would come to a total of $124 million, that is with the new increasing scale for next year and because they would qualify as a repeat luxury offender. This means that next years total for the team would be $228 million out the door as opposed to this years around $125 million out the door price. An extra hundred million dollars is quite a bit of money for one year. The way to avoid this would be either do not resign dwight or to amnesty Kobe or Pau. They would still have to pay luxury tax but the totals would come down quite a bit.

The fact that Cuban had to

The fact that Cuban had to even address this as a "controversial" statement or "out of line" is absolutely absurd. ESPN at it's finest.
