When the NBA decided to fine Mark Cuban $25,000 and not discipline J.R. Smith from Tuesday night's festivities(see link), you knew there had to be a reaction forthcoming from Cubes. So when I contacted him to ask for one and he replied, "C my blog," I knew it was going to be good.

It is. Check it out.

one thing to keep in mind, G. Karl is NOT stupid. If you were the coach and had a team as discombobulated

as Denver, would you not do what you could to keep the fan base (hint: Columbine) happy?

Yea, even more difficult to find writing which uses irony correctly.

thanks for your post, it gave me a chuckle, which is more than I NORMALLY get from the c-huckleheads who reply here.

Seriously. Not with irony either.

Are you being ironic when you refer to Cuban as He and Him?

Because typically, those words are only capitalized when one is talking about God, not a human being.

Or are you just getting English confused with the German language, where all nouns are capitalized?  I don't think that can be right, though, since you capitalize Happy Cub Fans, and Pro Sprts, and Coaches, but nothing else that shoudln't be capitalized (ie. the Mavericks, the Cubs.)

So difficult to detect irony these days...

In a sport that is trying to clean up its act and stop the "thuggery", George Karl must not have got that message. He has collected the biggest group of millionare gangstas in the NBA.

Good for Cuban. This is the NBA, not WWF.

Don't know why you couldn't have just quoted it.

Dear JR.

Im sorry I didnt accept your generous offer of a signed pair of shoes.  I think they were even my size.

The NBA tells me a tech should have been called on you for throwing the elbow and that I should pay a 25k dollar fine because owners aren’t supposed to get mad. Ever.

In the spirit of the joy of my getting fined and your not getting the tech, have the Nuggets PR folks contact the Mavs PR folks and I will donate 25k to the charity of your choice.

Unless of  course your coach thinks that the wrong thing to do, or the NBA says I can’t because it would be a violation of a rule. In which case, I will find a charity that I think you would like and make the donation in your name.

As a Maverick fan I do like Cuban and think He is a great owner compared to the stuffy old money that runs most of Pro Sports.  I however have never thought He should be in the huddles and on the floor during a game. I think it puts extra pressure on the players and especially the Coaches to have their boss looking over their shoulders.  I think this is probably frustration that has been building in the Maverick organization for the last 3 years.  Im not sure why the NBA hasnt learned that if they fine Cuban Hes going to throw it back in their faces.  If they want to hurt Him, suspend Him.  I mean what is a $25000 fine to a guy with 6 billion dollars?  As for you guys that dont like Cuban, You should have talked to the Happy Cub Fans when He was in the running to buy the Cubs.....

Folks, save yourself the time of going to Cubans blog and giving him the hits.  It is NOT worth the time.  If he thinks this is good, then Berger is lame. 

At least that makes him fit in with the rest of the CBS Sportsline writers.
