In fact, Cuban bought the Dallas Mavericks again in 2000 and continues to be listed as “proprietor” within the workforce’s 2018-19 media information.
The problem … a number of gamers, together with Draymond Green, have voiced concern over the time period — primarily saying it is racially insensitive in a league comprised of principally black gamers.
A number of groups have moved away from the time period — together with the Philadelphia 76ers and the L.A. Clippers — and even NBA Commish Adam Silver has stated he is delicate to the difficulty.
