Mark Cuban Will Pay for the Mavs’ Title Parade

Cuban tells ESPN that he won’s ask the city of Dallas to foot the bill for Thursday’s championship celebration: “Mark Cuban said parades just aren’t his style. But, don’t worry North Texas, the 2010-11 NBA champion Dallas Mavericks will be riding floats through the streets very soon. And, Cuban said he’s picking up the tab. ‘We’ll do it,’ Cuban said. ‘All I told them was — Terdema Ussery, our president — you plan the parade, I’ll pay for it because I don’t think it’s right for the city to have to pay for it. And let’s just have some fun.’”

    Damn. If five years ago someone told me that the world (except Florida) would hate Lebron and Cuban would be a classy guy…

    I wish the NBA and all of sports had more owners like Cuban. He is a fan of the game first, then a businessman. It makes for an invested and dedicated owner.

    Cuban is the kind of boss other companies hate and his own employees love. Kudos.
