Mark Cuban Talks Trash & The Top NBA News

Apr. 25, 2010 - San Antonio, TEXAS, UNITED STATES - epa02131920 Dallas Maverick Mark Cuban uses an Apple iPad on the bench before the start of the game against the San Antonio Spurs for their Western Conference first round playoff game at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA, 25 April 2010.

The Mavericks haven’t had a lot of luck when it comes to success in the Playoffs.  The Mavs often lose in the first round to either inner-state rivals or lower seeded teams.  However, infamous owner, Mark Cuban, believes that his team is the best squad in the West.  When asked if he thinks the Mavericks can beat the Lakers, Cuban stated, “Hell yes.”  Cuban went on to say that the Mavericks are the deepest team in the NBA.  A pretty bold statement, for someone who has never raised a championship banner.  In my book, the team to beat is always the defending champion, and this year it is the Lakers.  If history keeps its course, the Mavericks will never be the team to beat.
