If you want to see some great moments of Cuban with the Mavs go below.  I’ll start it off with a basketball story i’m sure you didn’t know about.  When Mark first became rich and retired at the old age of 29 he bought a lifetime travel pass on American Airlines for only $125k.  This pass allows him to get on any plane at any time even if it’s full.  If it is full they will have to ask a passenger to get off.  In the following interview (8:00) he talks about how he had Magic Johnson kicked off a plane because of this pass.  If that is true then Marc deserved every painful moment the Lakers ever delivered to the Mavs especially that historical 4th quarter comeback. If it wasn’t true it still made one entertaining story from the most entertaining Shark on TV.
