Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Still Thinks He Could Run for President

“If you have a message that people want to hear and will grab onto, it doesn’t matter if you’re an independent or in one of the two main parties,” he said.

Dallas Mavericks loud mouth Mark Cuban says he still might run for president if the “circumstances were right.”

Cuban started to set himself up as the anti-Trump about two years ago. He was so virulently anti-Trump that many began to wonder if he intended to challenge Trump for the White House. But then Cuban went silent and stopped his near daily attacks on Trump.

Well, apparently he hasn’t shut the door on a run.

Cuban recently told the New York Daily News, “It really would take the exact right set of circumstances.”

“I haven’t decided anything yet. We’ll see what happens. It all comes down to how things play out. It’s not something I feel like I have to do,” h continued.

“There’s a lot of uncertainty with what’s going on with the Mueller report, there’s a lot of things that have to be figured out before we know how 2020 is going to play out,” he said.

“But (running for president is) something that if circumstances were right I would,” he concluded.

He also said he decided not to run as a member of any party if he does it.

“If you have a message that people want to hear and will grab onto, it doesn’t matter if you’re an independent or in one of the two main parties,” he said.

Still, he might have a rockier road than he first thought.

According to Breitbart Sports:

Cuban’s presidential aspirations might be complicated by the sexual harassment scandal that hit his organization in 2018. Cuban was ordered to pay $10 million to a variety of women’s groups after an investigation concluded that the Mavericks owner’s leadership was lacking, when handling sexual harassment claims involving several members of the Mavericks organization.

“This is not something that just is an incident and then it’s over,” Cuban told ESPN in 2018. “It stays with people. It stays with families. I’m just sorry to see it. I’m just sorry I didn’t recognize it, and I just hope that out of this we’ll be better, and we can avoid it, and we can help everybody just be smarter about the whole thing.”

You ask me, I don’t think we will ever have to worry about Mark Cuban running for the White House.

LeBron James Discovers that Michael Jordan is STILL the GOAT in the Public’s Eyes

…And it wasn’t even CLOSE.

LeBron James may be the media’s favorite liberal athlete, but in the public’s eye, Michael Jordan still takes GOAT status, and it isn’t even close. James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon. But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT. As Business Insider noted: Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best. Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements. But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle. The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status. Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry. Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.

Murder Conviction for Former NFL Player Aaron Hernandez Reinstated

With its decision, the high court agreed with state prosecutors who said it was not fair to vacate Hernandez’ conviction.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has reinstated the murder conviction of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez in a decision that Overturns decades of legal precedent. The state’s highest court ruled that the practice of vacating a criminal conviction if the defendant dies during the case is a nonsensical practice and that the doctrine will be ended in the Bay State, according to the Boston Globe. Hernandez was convicted of murder in 2015 and was in the process of appealing the conviction when he committed suicide in jail in 2017. His lawyers then filed for abatement ab initio to vacate the conviction because he died during the appeal. But the state Supreme Court ruled against vacating the conviction. “We conclude that the doctrine of abatement ab initio is outdated and no longer consonant with the circumstances of contemporary life, if, in fact, it ever was,” Justice Elspeth Cypher wrote. With its decision, the high court agreed with state prosecutors who said it was not fair to vacate Hernandez’ conviction. During his arguments before the court, Bristol District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III said, “The practice of wiping out a jury verdict like it never occurred is not fair or equitable. Just to snap your finger and have that go away because the defendant died — it’s not fair.” The former New England Patriots player committed suicide two days after he was acquitted in a second murder case concerning the deaths of two men which occurred in 2012.
