Toronto Sun -
Mark Cuban, once one of the most media friendly NBA personalities, recently turned down a request for an interview from the Toronto Sun.

His reply to the paper is proof of his frustration with the league office.

"I no longer do interviews about the NBA, or anything that helps market the NBA. I leave that to the geniuses at the NBA."

Personally I think this is really bad for the NBA, even if Cuban has one of the biggest mouth in the NBA, he still a very intelligent person who can help the NBA in a lot of ways, and I mean a lot of ways. I think that Stern needs to get on the phone set up a meeting with him, and they both need to talk things over, and get this relationship up and running again, because like I said Mr Cuban is very important to the NBA.

I agree with you 110% on that one Vince. He's vital for NBA promotion.

Well, Cuban might just be pissed because he believes, just as many of us basketball fans do, that the Mavs were robbed in the Finals. DWade was given too many foul shots... Whatever, though.

No I don't think thats the problem, he's just frustrated about the new rules and such, if you show a little emotions after a foul, or a no call, you get a technical. And I think that Stern told him something that really got him mad, so he's like why should I help him anymore.

Hmm... True. The new "technical foul" rule, which ought to be called the "Rasheed Rule", is B.S. 100% B.S. If Cuban is pissed about that rule, I am by his side.
