Mark Cuban: NBA Players Should Be Paid to Play in the Olympics

Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban to Fox’s Greg Couch:

“It’s the biggest mistake the NBA makes,’’ he said. “If you look up stupid in the dictionary, you see a picture of the USA Dream Team playing for free for corporate America so the U.S. Olympic Committee can make millions of dollars. If you come up with something that you own, that you give it to me for free so I can make billions of dollars, I want it.

It’s 2012. Tough not to agree with Cuban. And D Wade. We’ll hear this same discussion from NHL Players eventually, right? That is, assuming NHL players leave mid-season again to play in the Olympics. [Fox Sports]
