Carmelo was off the hook! And I could tell by the body language and swagger of the Nuggets that they thought they had this game in the bag. But they learned that you can’t sleep on a champion. The Lakers may have struggled some but they are NOT the Mavericks nor the Hornets.
I’ve always liked Mark Cuban for the most part. His fire and enthusiasm puts a different face on pro sports ownership which is usually full of stuffy blow-hards. Sometimes he brings up issues that would otherwise go unnoticed in the NBA such as questionably inconsistent officiating. I was even disappointed when MLB would not allow him to purchase the Cubs.
Cuban is an innovator and is a brilliant guy who hustles like a hungry man in whatever he is involved in. I respect that. But what makes him great is also what makes him stink at times. Sometimes his mouth writes checks that even his rich bank account can’t cash.
That is just plain WEAK! The fact of the matter is, he pointed his finger, and disrepected the mother of an NBA player. He didn’t make his comments Saturday on the blog. So why does he think an online apology would suffice?
See that’s the best and worst thing about a blog. One can really share important information or insight. One can also hide behind the words typed on a computer screen to say the things they are too afraid to say in real life.
Cuban needs to man up and speak face to face with both Kenyon Martin and his mother. Anything else is just sheer cowardice!
