Mark Cuban has long been a popular owner among fans, but ever since the Mavericks won the NBA Championship, it seems nearly every fan base clamors for him as an owner. Mets fan and comedian Bill Maher is no different. Recently, Cuban was on Real Talk with Bill Maher on HBO. Maher, a Mets fan, noted Cuban's potential interest on becoming an owner of the Dodgers, but asked him to "please buy the Mets."

Now, with David Einhorn coming on board for the Mets, it's hard to see a complete ownership change. Still, it just goes to show how universally wanted Cuban is becoming as an owner.

Watch the short clip below.

Maher to Cuban: 'Please buy the Mets'

"Mark Cuban, please buy HBO and fire Bill Maher!"

Dumbest thing I've ever heard. Maher is a genius.

And yes as a Mets fan (and Dallas native), Cuban buying the Mets would be AWESOME.  I do agree it would be interesting to see him revive the Pirates as well though.

Maher to Cuban: 'Please buy the Mets'

screw the mets
screw the dodgers

let cuban buy the pirates.   how great would an owner willing to spend money look for that once proud franchise.  plus he would find ways to make baseball more profitable.

the mets and dodgers will by default get owners with deep pockets because they are in NY and LA.


imagine the buzz around pittsburgh this offseason when cuban and the pirates sign prince fielder and jose reyes

Maher to Cuban: 'Please buy the Mets'

Mark Cuban has long been a fan favourite as far as ownership is concerned.  I have enjoyed his character and candour towards the many topics he has faced through the media over the years.  He is a real person with a great mind for what works.  He seems to have an understanding as to how people work.  He can relate to many people and not be afraid to take a stand and makes sure people hear about it and why he feels the way he does.  Very direct and down to earth.  Good for Cuban and the Mavericks this year, sometimes the good guys do win.  Good on ya Mr. Cuban.  As far as owning the Mets really?  I think he would be better off with the Dodgers as a pure business venture.  The Mets are the other guys in NY out in LA the Dodgers are the team.  If anybody could choose I'm sure the Dodgers would be the first team to be purchased.
