Mark Cuban explains why he won’t do interviews on Donald Sterling

Mark CubanMany NBA figures came out to decry Donald Sterling over the past few days, but the usually outspoken Mark Cuban was not one of them.

We heard from LeBron James, Doc Rivers, and even Michael Jordan, but not Cuban. That’s surprising.

On Sunday, the Dallas Mavericks owner and business mogul used his Twitter account to explain why:

Cuban, who has never been shy about sharing his opinion on anything tech, financial or sports-related, drew some criticism for not speaking up about Sterling.

Reporter Mike Freeman tweeted the following quote from an NFL official who wondered why Cuban hasn’t said anything:

That point is particularly notable because Cuban recently expressed caution about the NFL’s ability to succeed in the future.

I don’t care what Cuban says over Twitter to defend himself. It’s frankly disappointing that he has not spoken up about this. Cuban is a leader and should be offering more of an opinion on the matter than he has.

    ” It’s frankly disappointing that he has not spoken up about this. Cuban is a leader and should be offering more of an opinion on the matter than he has.”

    This should fall on all the other 28 owners in the league as well, and not just Cuban. If this is the case, then it’s unacceptable that they haven’t come out and say anything either. So we’re just disappointed because Mark talks about everything else, but not about this one particular subject?

    This is asinine. Why in the hell does he need to say anything? What Sterling said was OBVIOUSLY abhorrent and to imply that because one doesn’t join the courageousless chorus line decrying obvious racism (because it’s so terribly harrowing to throw one’s support behind that cause in 2014), they may be somehow racist, is the height of stupidity. I’ve never seen anyone on here voice their support for the transgendered teen beaten into a coma last week, so this site MUST be anti-transgendered.

    See how stupid that is?

    I’m not white but you can be racist towards me all you want if you’re paying me millions of dollars

    Mark Cuban is just 1 of the other 28 owners that has said nothing Crisolo.He is a smart man unlike you. All the facts are not all out yet. Mark is not shy to anything.
