Mark Cuban: Lakers fans threatened to burn down my house, beat me up
Here are highlights from his appearance on Leno.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban joined Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on Wednesday. Here are some highlights:
On Lakers fans hating him:
“I cannot even talk, especially on Twitter. Everybody on Twitter, they get Twitter courage. If I even mention a Lakers name, my Twitter timeline just heats up with everybody. They’re going to burn down my house. They’re going to beat me up. They’re going to play me 1-on-1 and just stomp me. It’s just horrible.”
On his comments about Kobe Bryant:
“I would never say anything about Kobe. But what happened was I was trying to explain the collective bargaining agreement, which is hard to do and why the Mavs have signed certain players and not some others so I had to give an example. One of the examples I used included a player on the Lakers, but I can’t really go into it because the league called me up like they like to do and said ‘you say one more word, and it’s going to cost you.’ When the league says that, it usually means $1 million so we can’t talk about it.”
