Cuban Tells K-Mart’s Mom “Your Son Is A Punk”
Total Pro Sports – If you are looking for a series to get nastier, forget about turning to the players. Just look to the team owner to heat things up. And what better guy for the job than Mavs owner Mark Cuban.
Reports indicate that the league is investigating an incident between Cuban and the mother of Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin following their Saturday night game in Dallas, which saw the Mavs lose to go down 3-0 in the series. Cuban told The Denver Post by e-mail that as he left the court he saw Martin’s mother, Lydia Moore, as a fan was yelling that the Nuggets were “thugs.” That’s when Cuban added, “That includes your son.”
Martin’s agent, Brian Dyke had a different side to the story, stating that Cuban was not provoked by any comments from fans. Instead, he flat out told Moore “Your son is a punk.” this all came after Cuban and Mavs forward Josh Howard were irrate following a no-call that led to Carmelo Anthony’s game-winning shot.
With the series now 3-0 in favour of the Nuggets, it is unlikely that the suspensions will have much of an effect on the outcome, but if Cuban is disciplined, expect it to be a lot quieter in Game 4. Or, on second thought, maybe not.
