Mark Cuban Fined $100K Right Before David Stern’s Departure


David Stern is set to officially hang it up on February 1, which meant there was one more order of business to take care of before he bounces for good: Penalizing Mavs owner Mark Cuban one last time. Per ESPN Dallas:

The NBA office granted Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s wish, fining him one more time before commissioner David Stern’s Feb. 1 retirement.

Stern announced Saturday that Cuban has been fined $100,000 for confronting officials on the court and directing inappropriate language toward them at the conclusion of the Mavs’ 129-127 loss Wednesday night to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Cuban took to Twitter in response to the fine:

He added in another tweet that he would donate an equal amount to a charity.

Cuban’s latest outburst occurred after the Mavs blew a 17-point lead and Clippers guard Jamal Crawford scored the go-ahead points on free throws after a controversial foul call against Dallas forward Shawn Marion.
