We know it's time, you know it's time, and Mark Cuban knows it's time!!

It's time for OTHER players in professional sports to come out and be their own gay selves!!

That's right! Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, has already supported the idea of LGBT players AND contemplated drafting a woman, and he's now divining that others gay players will start to come out now that Jason Collins has!!

In response to NYT Sports columnist Bill Rhoden saying (incorrectly, we might add) that full acceptance of LGBT players is 'decades' away, Mark had this to say:

mark cuban said hell always remember jerry buss

Jerry Buss unfortunately passed Monday morning, and even though he's gone, Mark Cuban revealed that he will ALWAYS keep the late Lakers owner close to his heart.

The Dallas Mavericks owner said:

"Jerry Buss was the guy I looked up to in the NBA. When I got into the NBA he was the one guy who told me don't worry about what other people are saying. Just stay true to yourself. Believe in what you're doing and good things will happen. The NBA will definitely miss him. I'll miss him."

We're all gonna MISS him!

Buss passed at the age of 80 from cancer.

May he rest in peace.

Mark Cuban gave his two cents on Donald Trump's $5 million challenge to Barack Obama.

As we previously mentioned, Trump offered President Obama $5 million to the charity of his choice if he releases his college records.

Cuban said "the offer he made [was] one of the dumbest things ever."

So Cuban came up with an offer of his own, saying:

Mark Cuban Thinks He Didn't Get His Money's Worth With Lamar Odom

lamar-money-worht.jpg

Lamar Odom has been going through some rough times recently, and his wife Khloe has been nothing but supportive.

But not everyone cares so much about his feelings.

He's been dealing with some issues, which were the main cause of his departure from the Dallas Mavericks, but Mavs owner Mark Cuban isn't holding back.

"We tried. It didn't work. We move on.

Yeah, I think the winners are us. He didn't want to play. He decided to go elsewhere… Now we regroup and go forward. Now you just take the circumstances and make the best of it.

Every player goes through ups and downs. We try and put them in a position to succeed. You saw what we did—it didn't work. And you know, I just asked him, Does he want to go forward or not, is he in or out? I think he thought we were playing poker."

It's not that Cuban doesn't think he's a talented player, he thinks he has some real skill, it's just he:

"[…] went through some issues this year and we thought we could work through them with him and we weren't able to."

Because he couldn't work through his issues he was bringing too much "negative energy" to the team. So, was Lamar worth it?

"Did I get my money's worth? No. I don't know if the word's cheated, but did I get my money's worth? No."

Ooo. That's rough. We're sure your over $2,000,000,000 will keep you happy. LOLz!

We think this is the last thing Lamar needs right now.

At least he's still got his Khloe.

Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban On Lamar Odom

lamar-odom-and-khloe-mark-cuban-issue.jpg

As we've already mentioned, Lamar Odom will no longer be actively playing for the Dallas Mavericks.

Apparently, it was two main factors that led to Lamar being permanently benched.

An insider very close to Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, said:

"The decision was made by the team owner Mark Cuban after Lamar did not play in the second half of a game against Memphis.

The team was upset by his inconsistent effort on the court and was concerned about how his demeanor could impact the team's younger players."

So even though Lamar said:

"The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it's in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team."

…it was another insider that said it was "too much drama, [and] not enough focus on basketball" that led to his departure.

Either way, we hope he works past his issues and finds a team he can prosper on so he and Khloe can go back to being happily married.

Stay strong!
