Mark Cuban needs Draymond Green to apologize to NBA for ‘owner’ remark


DENVER — Count Dallas Mavericks proprietor Mark Cuban amongst these taking problem with Warriors ahead Draymond Green’s criticism of the time period “owner” in sports activities.

“For him to try to turn it into something it’s not is wrong,” Cuban informed ESPN. “He owes the NBA an apology. I feel he does, as a result of to attempt to create some connotation that proudly owning fairness in an organization that you just busted your bad for is the equal of possession by way of folks, that is simply flawed. That’s simply flawed in each which means.

“People who read that message and misinterpret it — make it seem like we don’t do everything possible to help our players succeed and don’t care about their families and don’t care about their lives, like hopefully we do for all of our employees — that’s just wrong.”

Last week, as a part of an Instagram publish condemning remarks by Houston Texans CEO Bob McNair, Green wrote: “For starters, let’s stop using the word owner and maybe use the word Chairman. To be owned by someone just sets a bad precedent to start. It sets the wrong tone. It gives one the wrong mindset.”

Cuban was offended by the connotation Green was seemingly attempting to connect to house owners in skilled sports activities.

“We own equity; we don’t own people,” Cuban stated. “And there is a mbadive distinction. This is a rustic the place we’ve firms, and you place up your cash and purchase fairness. E-Q-U-I-T-Y. It interprets into shares of inventory. People who bust their bad and work laborious and get a bit bit fortunate find the money for to purchase sufficient shares of inventory to purchase an organization.

“To try to turn it into something that it’s not is ridiculous. Draymond can trash-talk on the court, but when he comes into our world, it doesn’t fly. … I guess it’s because he went to Michigan State and didn’t take any business clbades, but you own equity. When you own a team, you own equity, shares of stock. That’s called ownership. Tell him if he wants to take clbades at Indiana’s business school, I’ll even pay for his clbades and we’ll help him learn that stuff.”
