Mark Cuban turned 58 years old today and the Dallas Mavericks faithful want to voice their thanks and hope for more years to come.
The Dallas Mavericks franchise has been owned and run by billionaire Mark Cuban since the beginning of the 21st century. Between his ownership, the coaching of Don Nelson, and the emergence of the German star, Dirk Nowitzki, the Mavericks were able to go from bottom feeders to a perennial powerhouse in no time at all.
The Mavs owe a lot of their success to Cuban, who was willing to bring passion and desire to NBA ownership, something it sorely missed before him. As an owner, Cuban was ready to go the extra mile to make the team that he chose to spend $285 million on better every day.
Mark Cuban is a very outspoken man when it comes to politics, business, basketball knowledge, and general education. He has taken the time to voice his thoughts and opinions on most of the major issues in the world but still manages to spend his time with the Mavs whenever needed.

Today, Mark Cuban turns 58 which means that, at 41, Mark Cuban had over $285 million to spend. Someone who has that much money at that age is probably pretty safe to listen to in general. Unless you’re either an NBA referee or commissioner.
So today on your birthday, we would like to show our thanks to the man who has brought us countless moments of entertainment, passion beyond the everyday NBA fan, and the name that our site is based off of.
We are hoping for many more years of ownership from our fearless leader. More yelling at refs, more savvy basketball moves, more hidden tricks up your sleeve, and how about a fine or two? We haven’t seen one of those in awhile.
In honor of his birthday, here are a few of the more entertaining moments from Mr. Cuban:
Thank you for everything you have done for this franchise. We are happy to call you our owner and will continue to support you as long as the Mavs are your top priority.
