    It looks Dallas Mavericks’ billionaire owner, Mark Cuban, will take a financial hit this NBA season no matter how many games his team wins. “Am I going to lose a lot of money this year? Yes. No question about it. More than $100 million when this is all said and done? Yes. No question about it,” Cuban said on Monday in an interview with a Dallas sports radio station. The Mavericks are one of many NBA teams likely to open the new season, which starts on Dec. 23, with few or no fans in the stands due to states’ social-distancing...

    Monday, Mark Cuban appeared on the Megyn Kelly Show. The NBA owner spun the NBA’s tank-job as hard as he could, discussing the league’s ratings collapse, Black Lives Matter, and the NBA’s relationship with China. As Outkick has written, the 2020 NBA Finals are an historic disaster — with games down as much as 58% year-over-year. Kelly accurately blames the league’s decision to go political for the millions of Americans turning away. “You wear a pink ribbon to support breast cancer is one thing. Putting BLM in the middle of the court when it’s not supported by virtually any Republican...

    Sen. Ted Cruz and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban got into it on Twitter on Tuesday morning over the NBA’s “social justice” messaging. Before it was over, Cuban told Cruz: “You are so full of sh*t.”The political kerfuffle began after Cruz tweeted a link to an article about the disastrous ratings of the 2020 NBA Finals. “Not surprising. Personally speaking, this is the first time in years that I haven’t watched a single game in the NBA Finals. #GoWokeGoBroke” Not surprising.

    The off-court scuffle began when Cruz tweeted a link to a news story about sagging TV ratings for the NBA Finals and wrote, “Not surprising. Personally speaking, this is the first time in years that I haven’t watched a single game in the NBA Finals. #GoWokeGoBroke” Cuban chimed in to question the logic of Cruz appearing to cheer for the downfall of a major industry in his own state. “A US Senator with 3 @NBA teams in his state, employing thousands of people and he is rooting for their businesses to do poorly,” wrote Cuban in a retweet of Cruz’s...
  • Game 1 of NBA Finals sees lowest viewership in recorded ratings history

    A trend of low ratings throughout the NBA postseason has now reached the NBA Finals. And hit it hard. Game 1 of the Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat brought in only 7.41 million viewers to ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That is reportedly the lowest viewership seen for the Finals since at least 1994, when total viewers began to be regularly recorded. The number is down 45 percent from last year’s Game 1
  • Tucker Carlson draws in more viewers than highly anticipated Game 4 Lakers-Nuggets matchup

    Just the News ^ | September 26, 2020 - 5:38pm | By Daniel Payne
    This week's Thursday night episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News pulled in more viewers than the highly anticipated Game 4 NBA match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets. That game drew 4.6 million viewers, while Carlson's show brought in 140,000 more than that. The comparatively low numbers continue a trend of plummeting viewership in the NBA, the numbers of which are down roughly 40% since the 2018 season and 27% from last year. Some commentators have blamed that drop on the League's increasing politicization, particularly beginning in mid-2020 as more and more players began coming...
  • Mark Cuban calls for households to receive two $1,000 stimulus checks per month

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said Wednesday American households should receive two $1,000 stimulus checks per month for the next two months. Cuban first proposed the idea in May and maintained the same notion that “Those without [help] are struggling badly,” he told CNBC. “We need to get them help.” The coronavirus pandemic has brought devastating outcomes to many families struggling to provide for themselves and loved ones as the national unemployment average remained above 10.2 percent from March until recent reports from August show it fell to 8.4 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. "In addition, because this...
  • Woke Capitalists Pandering To Colin Kaepernick And The ‘Social Justice’ Movement Will Never Win

    The Federalist ^ | 09/17/2020 | By Emily Jashinsky
    Colin Kaepernick is right about one thing—the NFL’s new social justice messaging campaign is best described as “propaganda.” Kaepernick’s dissatisfaction with the league’s explicitly pro-Kaepernick efforts, however, should be a major lesson for other woke capitalists. Absolutely nothing short of dismantling the capitalist system will satisfy their detractors.Corporations can go to great lengths to mollify critics, but those critics will never be pleased because their worldview is ultimately rooted in radical anti-capitalism. Mark Cuban, for instance, should recognize that Kaepernick and the leaders of Black Lives Matter do not see him or Roger Goodell as allies, no matter how...

    Despite near-daily efforts to show America how woke they are, or, because of it, the NBA’s playoff ratings are still tanking. “Weekday afternoon games have certainly hurt, but the first weekend of the NBA Playoffs was no ratings bonanza either,” Sports Media Watch reported. Viewership on ABC is down 23 percent and the numbers are down 20 percent overall compared to last year’s playoffs “The Lakers’ win ranks as ABC’s least-watched playoff opener in five years (2015 Pelicans-Warriors: 3.49M), with the caveat that this year marked the first time since 2004 that it did not air a game on the...

    by Greg Reynolds A black NBA player reportedly made a shocking racial remark to a white NBA player after a heated confrontation during a game on Friday night while the players were wearing jerseys that had special social justice phrases printed on the back. “LA Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell and Dallas Mavericks Slovenian star Luka Doncic got into a scuffle last night that ended with Harrell calling Doncic a ‘bitchh ass white boy,'” Outkick columnist Gary Sheffield Jr. wrote. “The solution here is simple, even if many won’t like it: the NBA has to suspend Montrezl Harrell and send...

    The Washington Times ^ | Friday, August 14, 2020 | Douglas Ernst
    Mark Cuban says critics of the NBA’s Black Lives Matter activism should focus on Fox News’ ratings before the league. The Dallas Mavericks owner says a 4% dip in ratings for the league has far more to do with Joseph R. Biden’s presidential campaign than politicized programming alienating fans. “Lol. You do realize that was the day @JoeBiden picked @KamalaHarris?” the billionaire tweeted at Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis on Thursday. “Nothing makes a Fox News viewer want to get lied to more.” Cuban’s comments failed to take into account strong ratings for baseball and hockey despite the coronavirus pandemic....

    Mark Cuban told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he will vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over President Trump in November, arguing that Trump "only wants to run a campaign" while Biden "wants to run a country." The endorsement comes as Biden continues to expand his lead over the incumbent in recent polling, including a New York Times-Sienna College national poll finding the former vice president enjoying a 14-point edge, 50 percent to 36 percent. "Donald Trump doesn't want to run a country. He wants to run a campaign," Cuban told Hannity on Tuesday night. "Joe Biden...
  • Mark Cuban on if Mavericks kneel during national anthem: ‘Hopefully, I’d join them’

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said kneeling during the national anthem wouldn’t have kept Colin Kaepernick off an NBA roster. That was a questionable claim that nobody tested. No NBA players emulated Kaepernick’s controversial demonstration (which protested racism, particularly through police brutality). But Cuban is now even more directly supporting players – particularly on Dallas – if they kneel during the anthem. Cuban, via ESPN: “If they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them. Hopefully I’d join them,” Cuban said. NBA rules state that players and coaches must stand for the national anthem, but...

Lee Pelton and wrote that white people need to make a change in their lives. “Dear White People: We are the ones that need to change. This is not one man's story. This is almost every black man's story. Which is why the problem is...
