If you want to see some great moments of Cuban with the Mavs, then go below.

I’ll start it off with a basketball story i’m sure you didn’t know: 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 allowed 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 mark), he talks about how he once had Magic Johnson kicked off a plane because of this pass. If that is true, then Mark 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.
