Taking Stock of Mark Cuban’s 20th Anniversary as Dallas Mavericks Owner

Cuban bought the Mavericks from Ross Perot Jr. on Jan 4, 2000

Twenty years, one championship, two finals berths, 15 playoff appearances and innumerable headlines later, what does Mark Cuban most cherish about owning the Mavericks?

“Still the best part about buying the team, other thing winning, is being able to go out on the floor before a game and get shots up,” he says. “That is the best. By far.”
