Cuban: ‘Owning a Team Is Unlike Owning Any Other Business’

Professional sports teams exist to make money. Secondarily, they exist to give a community something to rally around, something to cherish. Mark Cuban understands that probably better than most owners, and that’s why he’s always getting fined and yelled at and has Shark Tank. This morning, Cuban shared the more emotional side of being an owner by releasing some of the emails he’s received over the past few weeks. Dry eyes, be gone:

A friend of mine gave me your email. I have a friend who has a 15 year old boy with an inoperable brain tumor. He left MD Anderson today after the doctors telling him there was nothing else they could do for him. We are from OK and they are on their way home tonight. They are attending the game tonight. I called the head office and was able to get him in the “high five line”! He’s making his bucket list on the drive home and the first item on the list is meeting ****** Is there anyway you could make this kid have a great evening after this horrible day? He’s a great kid with a very positive attitude and has just been handed his death sentence. Thank you so much for your time in reading this!!

  1. My favorite day of the month is when I mail out donations for Dallas fund raisers from our small business. You want a feeling like Christmas every year? This is it. God bless you Mark Cuban. Good behavior is it’s own reward.
