â†µCuban hilariously promised Smith he'd be suspended for the elbow once Mark sent the tape to the league office; instead, that tape showed Cuban violating one of David Stern's arbitrary rules about conduct.
â†µSo of course Cuban used his blog to get the last word: â†µ
â†µâ‡¥The NBA tells me a tech should have been called on you for throwing the elbow and that I should pay a 25k dollar fine because owners aren't supposed to get mad. Ever.â†µAnd then he signs off with a "bff, m." No one does passive-aggressive like Mark Cuban. It's real wonder baseball's staid fraternity didn't want to admit him.â†µ
â†µâ‡¥In the spirit of the joy of my getting fined and your not getting the tech, have the Nuggets PR folks contact the Mavs PR folks and I will donate 25k to the charity of your choice. Unless of course your coach thinks that the wrong thing to do, or the NBA says I can't because it would be a violation of a rule. In which case, I will find a charity that I think you would like and make the donation in your name. â†µ
