    Cuban may be sports world's top boss

    Let's say this when considering what makes a great sports owner: at the moment, the bar is set low enough to trip over.

    Frank McCourt and his estranged wife have used the Dodgers as an ATM to finance their Champagne and caviar lifestyle. The Mets' Fred Wilpon blames everybody else ? namely Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and Bernie Madoff ? for finances and a baseball team that are a mess. Jerry Buss, who once let Jerry West pick his Lakers coaches, now turns the job over to his son Jim, the former horse trainer.

    So, the inclination is to think of a great sports owner as someone who isn't going to screw things up. (That's also one way to view a great editor.)

    But the better litmus test is who would you want as your boss?

    The Steinbrenners are all about winning ? and yes, it's nice to have their money ? but every time the Yankees lose two in a row do you really want to listen to blowhard Hank?

    Jim Irsay is a guitar-collecting, reformed party animal who has managed a minor miracle ? restoring his family's name, at least outside Baltimore. When the Colts laid off 40 employees, it was Irsay who delivered the news individually to each of them. But you wonder if those days partying with Hunter Thompson and Keith Richards killed off a few too many brain cells.

    Arte Moreno has transformed the Angels from a Mickey Mouse organization ? they were owned by Disney, after all ? into one that's fan friendly and smart. His first move was to lower beer prices. Now, if only he wouldn't be outbid by the Yankees and Red Sox every winter.

    The Rooneys are all class, old school and salt-of-the-earth ? patriarch Dan stands in line with everyone else for lunch at the team's cafeteria. Unfortunately, there's no free lunch for Steelers players when it's time to get paid. Sometimes they have to leave to get their money.

    There are others who might make the list: Red Sox owner John Henry, who has nearly as many World Series titles (two) as marriages (three), David Stern (who now owns the New Orleans Hornets) and the Green Bay Packers' owners, all 112,000 of them, who collectively meddle less than Daniel Snyder.

    But getting back to that question ? who would you want to work for? ? the answer seems clear enough: Mark Cuban.

    While his antics are questionable at times, I can't help but like Mark Cuban. Just strikes me as a regular guy who happens to own a team, and he acts just like an over-zealous fan. I will definitely be breaking out my Mavericks hat from when I had family that lived in Dallas for this championship series. :biggrin:

    Cuban: I'd lean toward drafting Baylor's Brittney Griner's just to see if she can do it?

    Talking about NBA prospects on Tuesday, Mark Cuban expanded, as he is wont to do, conventional wisdom. "If he's good, we're looking at him," Cuban said. "I don't care if the guy is from Upper Slobovia. If he can play, we'll take them. If Brittney Griner can play, we'll take her with our second-round pick. I don't care." And with that, the can of worms officially got ripped open. Cuban said he's serious about the possibility of bringing in Baylor's 6-8 star now that her college eligibility is done. "If she's the best on the board, we'll take her," Cuban said. "If we have the 60th pick and she's on the board, we still might take her."

    Ridiculous. I've watched Griner plenty of times. At 6'8", she can't do what is required of a small power forward in the league. Not even close. Need to be able to hit the outside shot and put the ball on the floor. You can't just play with your back to the basket on offense and protect the rim on defense like she's used to doing.

    She's gotta be able to beat Artie Lange in one on one before I could go there.


    One of Artie's finest moments when he beat that PSU chick in hoops. Artie even had bigger boobs than her. Set womens sports back forever in my mind when the short fat heroin addict beat a big10 scholarship athlete.

    Other favorite Artie moments include him being declared Lord of the Anal Rings after winning ring toss. Also his pig costumed coke purchase and then when he nailed that stripper and then it turned out she was a hooker too and needed $500 after sex. Strippers gotta mention that before they put out not after.

    Luka Doncic appears to flirt with referee Ashley Moyer-Gleich as Paul George shoots free throws

    There appeared to be some humorous back-and-forth between the two with Tyronn Lue in close attendance. Moyer-Gleich appeared to be saying ‘What foul?’ twice, before a reply from Luka sent her glancing sideways.

    NBA Twitter went all out in imagining what Luka Doncic could possibly have said to cause this reaction. Someone suggested ‘Fouling in love with you’ as a possibility, generating hysterics across the Web.
