But another interesting component has to do with the never-lost-for-words owner of the Mavericks, Mark Cuban. Cuban has been curiously mum during these playoffs. So will the eccentric Dallas owner break his self-imposed silence or is it a strategic move on his part to keep the focus off of himself?
Cuban was one of only two NBA owners to vote against the Super Sonics moving from Seattle and becoming the OKC Thunder, so it's shocking that he hasn't taken a least one shot at the team that now dwells in Sooner country against his blessings.
I highly doubt he's trying to keep the focus off of himself (that would be blasphemous) so I expect Mark to take a shot or two at the Thunder during this series. Or at least talk trash if things don't go Dallas' way as the series progresses.
Because it's just in his nature.
