Mark Cuban: Good to Hate HEAT
Hatred for the Miami Heat is healthy for the NBA, according to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Cuban, whose Mavs’ 2011 Finals victory is the lone time the Heat have been beaten in a playoff series since LeBron James’ migration to Miami, believes the league benefits from the polarizing nature of the two-time defending champions.
“With the two titles, they’re still like the bad guys,” Cuban told reporters Friday. “There’s a confidence bordering on arrogance that is good for them as a team and good for us as a league because it also makes them the team that everybody wants to knock off.
