How much blame does Cuban deserve?

Should Mark Cuban be taking more heat for the state of the association today bearing in mind that Dallas helped the GSW clear the cap space that they needed to make the Durant move feasible?

No. NBA is just a business.

When Lebron and Bosh joined the Heat, TWolves also helped them clear capspace by taking on Beasley.

GS didn't need help in order to sign Durant. The Mavs not trading for Bogut would not have changed it. They could have stretch waived Bogut.

No. For a bunch of reasons. One of them being that If it wasn't for us another team would have done it. In fact ESPN even reported that GS gave Bogut the choice between DAL and HOU.
