Why Mark Cuban Won't Give Jerry Jones Advice

Cuban and Jones are the most visible owners in their respective sports



    Earlier this week, Heat forward and diehard Cowboys fan LeBron James said he wouldn’t comment on how the team might be fixed, for fear of stirring up some headlines.

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has taken a similar stance, though for different reasons.

    Cuban is friends with Jerry Jones, but he won’t be offering Jones any advice anytime soon because, as a rule, Cuban doesn’t give other owners advice. This stance comes from the fact that (as one could imagine) Cuban wouldn’t be too keen on another owner giving him advice.

    I don’t give other owners advice,” Cuban told ESPN Radio 103.3-FM’s Ben & Skin, via the Dallas Morning News. “Just like if he started telling me, ‘Mark, what are you doing with that general manager?’ or ‘Trade Dirk (Nowitzki), break this team up.’ No, I wouldn’t like that, so I don’t give advice to other owners.”

    Not that Jones would ever (like, ever) sell the team, but even if he did, Cuban says the surely astronomical asking price would be too rich for his blood.

    “I think football teams have gotten so expensive that it would take a whole consortium, you’d have to put together a whole fund in order to buy them and that wouldn’t be any fun,” Cuban said. “It wouldn’t be any fun because it wouldn’t be my money, it wouldn’t be my team. It would have to be purely a business. That makes it a lot tougher.”
