Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban hoping for changes in NBA officiating
By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took to Twitter again on April 29 to discuss the NBA officiating in hopes of creating positive change.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is a man who knows how to create success. He is a billionaire that bought the Mavs in 2000 at age 42. In his 19 seasons at the helm, the Mavericks have made the playoffs 15 times including winning the NBA title in 2011.
Cuban is approaching two decades as an owner, so he has plenty invested in the NBA. He was quick to share his thoughts on the Warriors vs. Rockets controversy on Sunday afternoon. Fans can read more about that here.
Calling for change
Cuban went back on Twitter on Monday to call for change. It is a bold move that could get him fined by the NBA, but he wants things to improve. Cuban is spot on with his points too. Here is the first in a series of Tweets that the Mavericks owners sent out.
It will be interesting to see if Cuban can make anything happen here. Improving the officiating is a positive for everyone in the game. Better officials mean less controversy which puts the focus where it should be on the players. Fans should be talking about Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, James Harden, and Chris Paul in the Warriors vs. Rockets series and not the officiating crew.
Thank you, Mark Cuban. Hopefully, your Twitter discussion makes an impact going forward.

Cuban’s Mavericks will face their first season without Dirk Nowitzki this fall. Nowitzki was on the roster before Cuban bought the organization in 2000. It will be a year of change for the Mavs.
They are in good hands with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis leading the charge, though. Stay tuned to The Smoking Cuban for the latest on their new building blocks and all the rumors during the hot free agency period this summer.
