Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is using TikTok to spend some quality time with his children during the COVID-19 pandemic. Find out more here.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban ushered in a new era for the team. When he purchased the Mavs in 2000, the organization had not made the playoffs since 1990. It was an almost immediate turnaround under Cuban. The Mavericks had Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, and Michael Finley on the roster, but they did not win before the ownership change.

They made the playoffs 15 times in the next 16 seasons starting in 2001. It was a fantastic run led by Dirk that saw the Mavs in two NBA Finals and winning the championship in 2011.

Dallas missed out on the playoffs the last three seasons, but Cuban and Donnie Nelson had them back in contention this year. Luka Doncic forced his way into the MVP conversation as a 21-year-old. He has the Mavs primed for a decade-plus back in the playoffs.

Mark Cuban joined Da Windy City Podcast with FanSided’s Mark Carmen on April 17 to discuss a plethora of topics. Mavericks supporters can listen to the entire interview here.

On connecting with his children during quarantine

Everyone is spending more time at home right now as we all try to fight the novel coronavirus. It has given Cuban additional moments with his family. He talked about using TikTok to bond with his children during this time. See his quote below.

"“I like TikTok actually because it gives me some fun things to do with my kids. My daughter Alexis who’s 16 is on TikTok and she’s kind of like the driving force and it gives a chance to spend time together because for a 16-year-old daughter, unless she can use me to get more views and likes on her TikTok, she has no use for me.”"

Cuban’s daughter sent out one that many Mavs caught last month. It featured Luka Doncic pulling up to the owner’s house. Supporters can read more about that here.
