    On Spurstalk they have the WSJ drawing of "Mark Cuban", who seems to be a local hunchback with the same name as the celebrated billionaire. :lol:

    The scary part is Donnie is still president of basketball operations in Dallas.

    It's not clear how long Donnie is going to stay with Cuban. He's been overshadowed by his dad and Mark Cuban; but I suspect he could get one of the open GM jobs in a heartbeat.

    The acticle gave the conflicting reports about what happened with Nash, but it seems obvious to me that it was Cuban's decision and not Nelson's. You could make a case that the Mavs might have won the championship the last two years if Nash had stayed in Dallas.

    What is this all about? He has someone seeing which refs give him the advantage?

    You are obviously not a regular reader of the Wall Street Journal. They have a rather formal style and do not let illiterate jocks write for them. :p

    After reading comments about this article here [http://myespn.go.com/blogs/truehoop/0-24-1/Wall-Street-Journal-on-Don-Nelson-vs--Mark-Cuban.html], I am going to have real trouble rooting against the Warriors if GS faces the Suns in the WCF. I love the Suns, feel nothing much about GS, but Nellie deserves a trophy. Yes, he's made stupid mistakes, but standing up to Cuban was integrity and good sense like you rarely see in this world today. He hasn't gotten dealt a good enough hand so far, but he's the Auerbach of this decade. Maybe Baron Davis will be his Cousy (bad analogy, I know).

    Um ... Nellie stands a good chance of getting $6.6 million for his troubles. You shouldn't feel that sorry for him.
