Mark Cuban, owner of the Mavs and the best thing on Shark Tank, was shocked and still upset about the way Jason Kidd left the Mavs to go up North and I don’t mean jail time for a DUI.  During his interview on the Ben And Skin sow on 103.3 KESN-FM he said

“I was more than upset,” “I thought he was coming (back). I was pissed.”

“J-Kidd’s a big boy, he can do whatever he wants,” Cuban said. “But you don’t change your mind like that. I’m sure I’ll get over it at some point, but as of right now, I wouldn’t put J-Kidd’s number in the rafters.”

“I like J-Kidd,” Cuban added. “He’s a good guy. But I just thought that was wrong. You can’t put a guy’s number in the rafters when he decides he doesn’t want to be there.”

“It hurt my feelings, period, because I thought that we had developed a relationship and I thought [Kidd] was committed to the organization. It sure seemed like he was. I mean, J-Kidd was active in going out there and talking to Deron Williams the whole time. I guess it was more shocking and surprising than anything else.”

When asked about Jason Terry’s departure he said

“Jet was 100 percent honest and straight forward about everything,” Cuban said. “No problem with what Jet did whatsoever.”
