The Mantra "we love our guys in blue" is bull, we need talent. Wake up Cuban!
It can also be an excuse for Cuban not to spend as much this year given the pandemic situation. I understand he owns some restaurants in Dallas and they for sure have taken a hit financially. It's just out of character for him to admit it because he's Mr. Shark Tank and all.
I don't think Cuban has ever built a business of any substance. He had a small deal before Broadcast.com, that was ok. Then he got really lucky. Broadcast.com was also small and really didn't have much future, but got bought out in the dot.com mania. His true brilliance was hedging out of all that Yahoo stock when it was crazy. I doubt his restaurants are a very meaningful part of his wealth so its unlikely he is facing any financial pressure from them.
Cuban has always been willing to spend on the Mavs, and as a fan, I very much appreciate that. While I don't think he is particularly clever with his team building, we can likely always count on him for deep pockets and willing to spend on his toy.
