He didn't include the two most novel things on realgm. The summer league stats database and the picks owed section.

Realizing there's only 20 days left until our first game of the season (preseason, but still). The wait is almost over.

On top of it he got some prime NY real estate + the O2 arena. To call it a profit is an understatement, its a fortune in < 5 years. That's how billionaires stay billionaires. Putin isn't the only Russian to have pulled a fast one on America.

DT: You recently told me that you didn’t adapt to the NBA, the NBA adapted to you. How so?

MC: When I got here, everyone tried to make me go old school and be like everyone else. Owners were supposed to write checks, and that was it.

Teams had four coaches, no development coaches. [We] didn't market our game as entertainment, we sold basketball. [The league] didn't use technology and basically was run by David Stern top to bottom.

I tried to run the Mavs like a startup. We brought in 10 former players to help develop our players. People laughed at me. I sat next to the bench and listened into huddles. If it made sense to be in sales and management meetings and learn how people interacted, it made sense to listen in to huddles during a game and learn.

I challenged all conventional wisdom. Some people, like Jerry Buss, really supported me. Others did everything possible to get me out.

Now, none of that is new any more. It's the new old school.

Cuban has an understated mentor relationship with Dr. Buss.

I haven't seen one game of the american HS guys, and I don't need to.

Not the european in me talking, but Luka Doncic is the clear cut no.1 pick in 2018, and it shouldn't be anywhere close.

I'm not that old to have seen Sabonis in his prime, or the other dinosaurs his age and era...but I've never seen a better 18 yrd old euro EVER, and that's including every guy that's in the NBA right now.

Check out Porter and Bagley on YouTube. They are both pretty sick.

More importantly he hasn't signed his OKC extension yet.

Ricky Rubio was amazing against international competition when he was 18.....

Not even close to Doncic' level.

I'll make a bold statement, and I don't give a **** if I get quoted for it....but Luka Doncic is a better player than Ricky Rubio RIGHT NOW, as a 18 yr old.

Not comparing their game at the same age, but right now. 18 yr old vs 26 yr old. I'll take Doncic every single day.

Josh Richardson extension suggests it should be cheap to extend Randle now.

Is Julius Randle good enough to be a starting player on a championship team?


I ask the question because I truly don't know the answer.

If Zaza is good enough to start on a championship team, then Julius Randle can too.
