Mark Cuban is not backing down.

Speaking to Inc. magazine about the racist comment made by Donald Sterling over the past few weeks, along with the decision by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to ban the 80-year old for life, the Dallas Mavericks owner said the league is setting a dangerous precedent.

Does it really want to take action against executives for their words and thoughts?

I would imagine for billionaires insulting someone's golf game is like making a joke about their mother, so Trump is treading on dangerous ground here.

The collegiate career of Brittney Griner came to an end over the weekend when Louisville shocked Baylor in the Elite 8.

But not only does Robert Griffin III have Griner's back, Mark Cuban has given the 6'8" center a reason to turn her frown upside down: he may draft her to the NBA!

"If she is the best on the board, I will take her," the Mavericks owner said prior to last night's game against the Lakers. "I've thought about it already. Would I do it?"

"Right now, I'd lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it."

"You never know unless you give somebody a chance, and it's not like the likelihood of any late-50s draft pick has a good chance of making it."
