Every NBA fan knows that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is one of the most outspoken people in the entire league. Cuban was at it again on Tuesday during an interview in Los Angeles where he talked about the Lakers and their struggles. Cuban said, “Personally, I just hope they suck forever.” It is a popular opinion with a lot of people who have seen the Lakers win title after title over the years. [photo: Christian Petersen/Getty]
Obviously, Cuban wants every team around the NBA to suck because that would mean his Mavericks would win a championship every season but this is basically just piling on at this point. The Lakers are off to their worst start in franchise history at 1-9 and everyone knows that they aren’t going anywhere this season and probably will end up with a top-3 draft pick next summer.
Cuban’s comments sounded similar to what he said two years ago about the Lakers where he said. “I don’t know, I don’t care, I just hope they suck. You know, like any other team.” There is likely nothing to worry about this year for Cuban with the Lakers. There may be a point sooner than later again though where the Lakers get back to their normal selves. Cuban can watch out when that time arrives.
