View Full Version : Mark Cuban calls Phil Jackson "Jeanie Buss' boy-toy"

01-04-2011, 10:11 PM

DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban apparently didn't appreciate Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson offering his opinion about the impact of Caron Butler's season-ending knee injury.

"He just leaves a vacuum that's going to be very hard for them to fill," Jackson said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Cuban scoffed Tuesday evening at reporters' questions about whether this affected the Mavs' approach in the trade market. He kept his answers brief, saying they'd be "opportunistic," as always.

But Cuban was a bit more talkative while jabbing at Jackson, poking fun at the legendary coach's romantic relationship with Lakers owner Jerry Buss' daughter and team executive vice president of business operations, Jeanie, in the process.

"I love that Jeanie Buss' boy-toy had something to say about us," Cuban said while sweating on the stair-stepping machine in the Mavs' workout room. "I don't know if it was his thought or Jeanie's thought, but it's nice to know that she lets him speak in public about other teams."

Cuban declined to offer his opinion on the two-time defending champion Lakers, who have hit a rough patch with four losses in six games.

"I don't have a take on his team," Cuban said with a smirk. "I like Jeanie."

so dumb but I love it. We need more characters in the NBA. After watching the 24/7 special on the Pens and Sens, it makes me wish that we could get away from this squeaky clean image that the NBA is aiming for. Half the guys in the NBA don't fit the image that the Stern is trying to create anyways. **** talking entertains us fans.

Typical Mark. He wasn't happy about Phil's take on the impcat of Caron's injury on the Mavs. Discuss.

Cuban is funny. I saw that and :laugh:, however this is why he isnt owning the Cubs or the Rangers, cause sometimes he doesnt know when to shut up.
