Mark Cuban Quotes
- Sweat equity is the most valuable equity there is. Know your business and industry better than anyone else in the world. Love what you do or don’t do it.
- Work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it all away from you.
- Don’t start a company unless it’s an obsession and something you love. If you have an exit strategy, it’s not an obsession.
- What I do know, at least what I think I have learned from my experiences in business, is that when there is a rush for everyone to do the same thing, it becomes more difficult to do. Not easier. Harder. If you’re prepared and you know what it takes, it’s not a risk. You just have to figure out how to get there. There is always a way to get there.
It doesn’t matter how many times you have failed, you only have to be right once.

Mark Cuban NBA Team
He is the owner of the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Dallas Mavericks, co-owner of 2929 Entertainment, and chairman of AXS TV. He is also one of the main “shark” investors on the ABC reality television series, Shark Tank. He is also a partner in Synergy Sports Technology, a web-based basketball scouting, and video delivery tool, used by many NBA teams. On January 4, 2000, Cuban purchased a majority stake in the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks for $285 million from H. Ross Perot, Jr.
In the 20 years before Cuban bought the team, the Mavericks won only 40% of their games and a playoff record of 21–32. In the 10 years following, the team won 69 percent of their regular-season games and reached the playoffs in each of those seasons except for one. The Mavericks’ playoff record with Cuban is 49 wins and 57 losses, including their first trip to the NBA Finals in 2006, where they lost to the Miami Heat.
Historically, NBA team owners publicly play more passive roles and watch basketball games from skyboxes; Cuban sits alongside fans while donning team jerseys. Cuban travels in his private airplane—a Gulfstream V—to attend road games.
In May 2010, H. Ross Perot, Jr., who retained 5% ownership, filed a lawsuit against Cuban, alleging the franchise was insolvent or in imminent danger of insolvency. In June 2010, Cuban responded in a court filing maintaining Perot is wrongly seeking money to offset some $100 million in losses on the Victory Park real estate development. The lawsuit was dismissed in 2011, due in part to Cuban asserting proper management of the team due to its recent victory in the 2011 NBA Finals. In 2014, the 5th Circuit Court affirmed that decision on appeal. Following his initial defeat, Perot attempted to shut out Mavericks fans from the use of the parking lots he controlled near the American Airlines Center.
In January 2018, Cuban announced the Mavericks would be accepting Bitcoin as payment for tickets in the following season
