If you are a basketball lover then you have to know the name Mark Cuban. It is a name that resonates with the NBA as he is one of the most recognized franchise owners, someone who cares about the well being of his players and organization, an extremely dynamic individual, and all around great business man.
Although he has led the Dallas Mavericks to become a dominating team from one that was lacking before he was the owner, the deal almost did not come to fruition. He almost bought another professional sports team in a completely different sport. Watch this brief video from good friend Brian Cuban (brother of Mark) below to learn the behind the scenes scoop on what really went down.
What are your thoughts about this deal? Do you think Mark should have bought the other franchise, or do you think Dallas is lucky to have such a great owner? Be sure to follw both Mark and Brian on Twitter as they always have interesting things to say.
