Mark Cuban takes his shots at LeBron

(Via Dallas Morning News)

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban talked with The Dunham and Miller Show on SportsRadio 1310 The Ticket in Dallas on Wednesday morning and spoke for the first time on his impressions of LeBron James' free agent announcement.

“LeBron has every right to go wherever and do whatever, whatever team he wants to," Cuban said. "Going to the Heat was his choice, those guys working together. I don’t even have a problem with the three of them working together, as long as they follow all of the NBA rules, which I think they did.

Where I think LeBron made a mistake, was in how he did it. I don’t even have a problem that he had the tv show. But it turned out to be the largest public humiliation in the history of sports. He humiliated the organization, he humiliated the state of Ohio , the city of Cleveland. All of a sudden he became a bad guy, he lost a billion dollars in brand equity, give or take a couple bucks here or there. ...

"I told his folks that I think he got bad advice. It’s not about 'Can he move?' He can move, he can play for any team. I think he picked the wrong team (chuckles). There’s a team in Dallas that could have used him and that would have been better served but it’s his choice. But the way he did it I thought was just a huge mistake."

The Miami Heat will visit Dallas this year. Then Marc Cuban should just sit down and watch the show unfold.

Mr. Cuban just has roster envy. Every season he makes a subpar move out of desperation, and he's just bitter that Riley pulled off the greatest offseason in NBA history.

He is talking a lot of crap, like always, because LeBron didn't sign with Dallas.
He is a crybaby with a lot of money (He own a DQ chain).
He think he can do what ever he want.

Lebron was loved and respected by most NBA fans around the world when playing with the Cavs. He has cost himself hundreds of millions by the way he left. Total classless and arrogant but it is the the Heats benefit! Cuban knew he never had a chance to sign him. I don't believe it is sour grapes just his personal feelings. So what? Truth is LBJ DID hurt his reputation and personna. I hope all that bad karma doesn't follow him.

lebron really should of consulted with cuban on the correct way to leave through free agency. let's hope all free agents in the future, regardless of their sport don't make the same mistake. I think all free agents should be given a braclet with the letters w.w.c.d
