Cuban: Mavericks might not get title rings

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is one of the most forward-thinking owners in all of professional sports.

Cuban is always looking for new innovations to improve the game.

Could that also include starting a new trend when it comes to championship jewelry?

While being interviewed during NBA TV's postgame show by host Matt Winer, Cuban was asked just how big of a ring he was planning to get for his players.

Cuban quickly put some doubt into those plans.

"I'll tell you something, I might not get rings," Cuban said. "Rings are old school."

Analyst Chris Webber was surprised by the answer, but Cuban compared it to Webber's days at Michigan.

"It's like the Fab Five; everybody had short shorts, then they didn't have short shorts," Cuban said.

Webber asked Cuban that if he wasn't planning on the customary rings that players have received for decades for winning the title, what exactly was Cuban going to do?

Cuban smiled and kept that answer close to the vest, much like he has all of his comments throughout these playoffs. Cuban smiled and nodded, but he did not say what was up his sleeve.

It is obvious, however, that Cuban has put some thought into how he would celebrate, should this day ever come.

"You've seen it before, there's guys who pick up the sweats and towels and they have these big, blingy rings, and I'm like, "Rings are done," Cuban said.

"It's time to take it to the next level."

I don't like it. I think there's just that mystical feeling about the ring. I get what he's doing and I respect it, but I just think that the ring has so much meaning to it and a certain "aura."

watches? cuban will make history. I think rings are better though. This isnt about swag anyways.

Part of what makes rings so great IMO is how you can wear many at once. Watching Bill Russell w/ two handfuls of rings is chilling. Phil Jackson too. That same mistic can't exist w/ a watch because you have 2 risks. In a sense, it's kind of limiting yourself, whereas a ring says "I won this title, but I got room for plenty more."

No, I would hate this. He can do it for his team, but I hope it doesn't become some permanent thing. There's something magical about seeing guys wearing multiple rings. It's intense.

I recently read somewhere that russ didn't even own that many rings, the nba made much of them for a photo shoot. But utah that photo looks awesome.

I am glad... The ring thing is getting a bit old... Maybe everyone gets their on trophy. This guy has billions so the sky is the limit to be honest. Maybe the trifecta... Championship Earring/ring and watch... Cuban blinging his players out

I like the idea of Cubes adding something to go along with the rings. I just hope he doesn't do away with the ring thing entirely for this group.

I would just stick with the rings if I were Cuban.

Just to show Lebron that he needs to win to be a king.

Belt buckles? That'd be fitting in Dallas!
Crowns?
Necklaces?
Watches? Meh.
Championship-diamond-studded-I.Phones?
Betls like the ones Wallace got the Bad Boys 2.0?
C@ck rings?
Cadillacs?
GRILLZ?!?!!?!?
Where is this going!

I'd wanna stick with rings. If he wants to throw something else in there, cool, but doesnt the league issue the rings anyways? Not the team?

He is going to give them the "Million Dollar Man Belt" from the WWF when it existed with Ted Diabiose

I'm in favor of platinum/diamond studded grills, or championship belts.

I love it......Cuban is off the hook.....The ring has to be included...there is a historic thing there, I wouldn't mess with, but matching chain, ear rings....that would be sick.

I do believe the rings are given from the NBA, jus the franchise has input on the design. Maybe he meant in addition he has something planned for the team aswell, just a thought

Dirk said today on PTI that he and players will try to convince Cuban to still get them rings. I doubt Cuban will do the opposite of Dirk says lol. So if anything they will get something ALONG with the rings. Watches would be nice.

Unless you have more Rings then your Fingers. (Bill Russel, Phil Jackson)
