A Wicked Mark Cuban Segue Way

A fun little sports diversion has been bouncing around the Twitter-sphere today, courtesy of New York Daily News basketball writer Stefan Bondy. Last night, he tweeted that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had jokingly deemed the Russian billionaire owner of the New Jersey Nets a “pussy”; this morning, Bondy relayed Mikhail Prokhorov‘s good-natured reply about not liking cats.

Prokhorov could use a better joke writer. But here on the west coast, we were intrigued by the way NBC Sports writer Kurt Helin jumped from the billionaire faux cat fight to this:

Just a few thoughts… and this is just more of a personal note from me as a Los Angeles native. I want Cuban to buy the Dodgers. Now more than ever. Make it happen for me, Mark.

From the P-word to the O-word… Hmmm, come to think of it, Cuban would be a perfect rebound Dodgers owner after the cheating ways of the McCourts. Make it happen for us too, Mark.
