Mark Cuban Is Mad At The NBA... Again

Once again, Mark Cuban is mad at the NBA. This time, he's mad at the NBA schedule makers for not scheduling his Mavericks to visit the Washington Wizards, and subsequently, a trip to the White House to visit the President of the United States as all championship teams do.

Apparently, Cuban didn't bother to call the league offices to voice his concerns. Instead, he merely said:

"There's no point in calling them. It's bull---- by the league not to schedule it," Cuban said. "I figured I'd do it myself since the league wasn't smart enough to figure it out. How can you be that stupid? All you've got to do is when you're putting in the scheduling software, say Dallas at Washington, yes. They managed to get Dallas and Miami and all the games set on certain days."

I'm never surprised when Cuban is angered by something, no matter how minute it is. Even if the Mavericks were scheduled to play the Wizards, there's no guarantee that the President would be in town that day, and it's not as if the President is going to arrange his schedule just to host the Mavs.

All is well that ends well, though. The defending champs will get to visit the White House next Monday on an off day, before the team heads to Detroit and then to Boston for road games.
