Cuban is an idiot.

I'm not sure if he thought it was like a Jedi mind trick to say Russ wasn't a superstar before the most pivotal game of the series but he got exactly what he was asking for!

I like how KD had his boys back like "I got this....he's a idiot!" Lol

Mark Cuban=Donald Trump. Egos that are out of this world. Not as smart as people think they are.

Billionaire Entrepreneur Mark Cuban: 'Failure is Part of the Success Equation' YES, I KNOW! I KNOW! Idiot!!

As many time these two have failed...but, they continue to get opportunities. LOL Only in America.

To be fair, I get where Cuban is coming from. When Westbrook as missed time Durant has dominated on an all-time level and kept the team playing very good ball. When Durant misses time, the Thunder fall to a .500 or below team.

But, all that really means is your definition of a superstar. Westbrook is no doubt one of the best players in the league. The list of players who can dominate and win a lot of games with limited talent like Durant did or Dirk has is very short. Dirk is one of the very best players of all time, and Durant will go down the same. So if that's Cuban's definition of a superstar then you're really talking about just 3 guys in Curry, LeBron and Durant in the entire league right now.

Well when Trump fails he just uses federal government programs and the banks to bail him out ;)

Born on third base and thinks he hit a triple...

Cuban's a self made guy though, I have a lot of respect for him, even though he does say dumb **** every so often. Westbrook is a beast.

Not even a Trump supporter but you're a fool if you think a billionaire wouldn't use the law to their advantage. They stay rich because they do.

On a side note, Cuban is highly intelligent. He might have an ego but don't confuse that with intelligence.

Totally fine to use law to advantage to retain wealth. Just not much of a "Republican" principle to take advantage of those big gubment programs is it?

Cuban's right though isn't he...I mean you have to admit that it's at least debatable. Westbrook is a very good player don't get me wrong. I just don't think he is a superstar. LBJ...yes. Steph Curry...yes. Those two have transcended the game. Westbrook, hell you could argue even Durant have not.

Sorry, but, Russell Westbrook is a superstar. Period.

This guy is getting better in his decision making. If he start to make more game winners. I'll put him in the "Elite class"...Curry, Bron Bron, KD, and that "System guy" from the Spurs is starting to crack the list. I'm even hard pressed to add Curry to my elite class, because he don't have good defense. You put Curry or Kawhi on a different team, they won't win 50 games.

Bankruptcy (including corporate bankruptcy) is governed under the US Constitution, so you can play semantics all day but is a federally governed law/program whatever. I didn't say banks were part of the government, you're putting words in my mouth. I said government programs AND bank bailouts.

Anyway you can nitpick all you like, the point I was making was simply Trump is a silver spoon baby who's always gotten his way, and I don't view Cuban in the same way since he's pretty much a self made guy. Those are just facts but feel free to play whatever semantics you like.

Oh yeah and also you're arguably the #1 troll on this site, and your "angle" on this very clear bait thread (1 of many for you) is no surprise. Pointing out others flaws, specifically ways of speech of specific black people, makes you feel like a real big, superior man. It's quite pathetic really. You might want to consult a professional about the source of your insecurity at some point.

equating declaring bankruptcy to a government program. el oh el.
worst. analogy. evar.

and who gives a rats *** if banks "bail him out". an agreement between two private entities is no one's business but their own. it's no different than if your friend were to lend you $100 in hopes that you will pay it back. why does anyone else care?

no, you're wrong once again. trump took his father's fortune and increased it several fold according to the same article that you posted. he's produced more jobs and wealth for others than most of us here have, combined.
someone like paris hilton would be a more apt example of someone born into wealth, squandering money away, although you could argue that she's used her fame to generate wealth.

So if Trump is getting bankrupted left and right according to you, why is it he today is worth an estimated $4 billion (and that doesn't include the value of his name alone nor does it include many of his holdings?)? You can't be spoonfed your entire life and still be a damn billionaire (unless you were really spoonfed big time and there is zero chance of you failing).. There's something we call lack of motivation. Hate Trump all you want but he's successful at what he does. Whether it's this presidential race or in life, he's accomplished far beyond his potential. I can name you many spoonfed billionaires like the Walton family. Those guys are the spoonfed ones.

This is not even a question anymore. OKC was 3-11 without Westbrook last season. Their record was 45-37 and this was a roster that we've saw have the highest amount of players (we traded a bunch and there was just different players coming in/out). He would have gotten OKC to 55 wins for sure if you consider that last season was just a big mess with trades going on/KD being in/out. 50 wins? That's 100% possible for Westbrook. He's an elite player and has been top five for two seasons now. As great as Dirk was, let's not pretend that his teammates for his career were total trashcans. Not to mention Rick Carlisle is much better than any coach Westbrook has played for in the NBA. Can he carry a team as option #1? Depends, which team are we talking about? Put him in the Warriors and 65 wins is for sure. Put him on the Sixers and you probably have a point there. This is just Mark Cuban with his infatuation with Dirk. His standard of you having to reach 50 wins per season is silly. Duncan has reached 50 wins his past few seasons with the Spurs. Is he still a superstar despite him scoring zero points and being played for only 15-20 minutes?

Good post, respect to how you laid this out. I don't necessarily disagree with you here (when I said spoonfed I was pointing to his MASSIVE inheritance, which he tried to pass off as $1 million that he launched with lol)

But I do agree with you here FlashBolt, insofar as I do see Trump as someone who is extremely adept at marketing himself and maneuvering/manipulating business ventures to his advantage over a period of time. I would argue he's been extremely unscrupulous in some of these endeavors however, to the point of being a straight up scumbag (Trump U comes to mind).

I get that there is a small subsector of people who like/support him because they see him as someone from outside the government system whose business acumen would hopefully translate to an economic boom (even though he has admitted to funding/lobbying to politicians in the first place in his own corporate interests, which I perceive to be a major systemic problem with our government).

But again, I do get that to a degree. But then you have a substantial percentage of his supporters that are just unintelligent, ignorant racists and bigots coming out of the woodwork (which he's well aware of, and his pandering to them for his own political gain is disgusting and dangerous to me, see his retweeted, racist homicide infographic which was FAKE from several months back, just reckless and flat out dumb). He's a divisive race baiter (gee I wonder why blahblah likes him) who comes across as a complete narcissist.

To answer your net worth question on him though, it is interesting to consider this argument: http://opinion.injo.com/2015/09/247749-donald-trump-is-a-mediocre-businessman-and-his-record-proves-it/

Which is from a conservative Republican btw - I've seen this come up in several places now, and according to this argument, "He has (mis-)managed his company in such a way that he would have been better off, financially, simply investing his inheritance from his father in an S&P 500 fund than, well, operating the Trump Organization."

Now you can take that for whatever it's worth, pick it apart, whatever. And I understand there's an attempt from conservatives themselves to take down Trump, but it is interesting to see a conservative pundit here (Liz Mair) making this argument.

Your quote that he can reinvest that money into an S&P fund just proves why it's stupid to talk about more intelligent topics when in a forum that is about sports.

You can debate with Liz Mair about it. It's her quote, not mine. I didn't "dig anything up" btw, this article I posted is a pretty well known/being talked about topic right now, took me about 1 second to find it.

I don't understand why when I wrote respectfully in response to your post, you return with "it's stupid to talk about intelligent topics" "digging with a lack of intellect" and "example is silly"... Do you always talk down to people in real life? Or are you just a dick when you're anonymous online?

Your quote that he can reinvest that money into an S&P fund just proves why it's stupid to talk about more intelligent topics when in a forum that is about sports.

Cuban is the same guy that was begging to overpay Deandre Jordan and wanted him to have a large offensive role for the Mavericks. Deandre Jordan. Large offensive role.

Same guy that broke up a championship team to pipe dream of Deron Williams and Dwight Howard.

He's a great owner but he should stick to writing checks, his basketball acumen is suspect to say the least.

Agreed. Guessing it was in part to try to get into Westbrook's head (maybe?) But there's just no denying Westbrook's an absolute stud and yes, Cuban, although he does have that chip and has had a damn good run (largely due to Dirk), has certainly made highly questionable decisions these past few years.

Let's see if he tries to max out Dwight now...

Billionaire Entrepreneur Mark Cuban: 'Failure is Part of the Success Equation' YES, I KNOW! I KNOW! Idiot!!

As many time these two have failed...but, they continue to get opportunities. LOL Only in America.

I agree. Absolutely.
