Miami Heat the Best Team According to Mark Cuban

by December 10, 2010

Despite his own team’s rampage through the League early in the season (to say nothing of his position on the Heat), Cuban tabs LeBron and co. as the NBA’s best squad. reports: “During a visit to San Antonio this past weekend, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said the Mavericks were probably the best team in the league right now. It’s hard to argue that opinion, given the 10-game winning streak the Mavs took into tonight’s game against New Jersey. I brought this up with Mark Cuban as he pounded away on the Stairmaster. Surely, he has to be pleased with the progress of the hottest team in the NBA, one that battling San Antonio for the league’s best record. But are the Mavs, in Cuban’s biased opinion, the best around? ‘Miami is the best team in the league right now,’ Cuban said simply. Really? The 15-8 Heat? Yes, Miami has rolled off six in a row to climb to third in the Eastern Conference. I asked Cuban to elaborate and he stuck to his guns that Miami was the class of the NBA.”
