Mark Cuban Hopes the Los Angeles Lakers ‘Suck’

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban continues to be disdainful towards the rival Los Angeles Lakers, and his wish that they “suck” certainly came true last night. Per the LA Daily News: “I don’t care,’ Cuban said. ‘I just hope they suck.’ [...] They’re like any other team,’ Cuban said. ‘Obviously Nash is great. Kobe’s phenomenal. But it takes a team. They have to come together and play as a team. Hopefully they don’t figure it out.’ [...] So how does Cuban explain the Lakers’ ability to keep making big moves? He suggested the Lakers’ two consecutive Western Conference semifinals exits indirectly led to such signings. ‘We’ll chalk it up to randomness,’ he said. ‘In order to make those kind of deals, you have to suck for a while. And they did. But it wasn’t a long time. It was only two years.’”

    You didn’t get Deron Williams. Let it go Cuban. Still have a solid team. The Lakers better not think they will be able to just turn it on and off because of the starting lineup they have. A team like Dallas (with Dirk in the lineup) or Denver can give them a lot of problems in the playoffs if they’re not playing their best.

    By the looks of the way Nash played, he might get his wish. The combination of Brown’s offense and the number of ball hogs on the lakeshow might render Nash pretty ineffective. When was the last time Nash put up such measly stats?

    Mark is hoping they suck so Dwight Howard can feel like staying in LA would be a bad decision. I see what you’re doing, Cuban.

    They did last night. I agree with Jason Carter would been nice if Cuban was allowd to buy the Cubs. Shake things Up.

    Suck? That’s a bold word when these are the best players in the world. I wouldn’t say the Lakers “sucked” the last 2 seasons. They were good, just not great enough to make it to the Finals. The NBA is very competetive amongst the top 6-10 teams in the league Cubes..

    Did anyone see Cube yelling at Pau Gasol at the end of the game:

    “Say your sorry!!”

    “Say your sorry!!”

    STFU and mind your own GOT DAMN buisness you greased up piece of sh*t.
    I can tell ya’ll how I really feel about Marky Mark if ya want too…
