Mark Cuban Hit in the Face by Fan-Thrown Object

by April 22, 2011

Not only did he watch his team lose Game 3 against the Blazers in Portland last night, but Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says he was hit in the grill by an unidentified object thrown by a fan. Not cool, bro. From the Star-Telegram: “The incident happened with 6:56 to go in the game. During a timeout, Cuban drew the ire of Blazers’ fans and it was clear that there was some dialogue going on. It’s not uncommon for Cuban to interact with fans, but this was different. ‘Somebody hit me in the face,’ Cuban said after the game. ‘Somebody threw something and it hit me.’ Cuban was not hurt and said security was doing a good job of making sure the Mavericks were not in harm’s way.”
