It's been a while since our last installment of "You Got Served," but this one is too good to ignore:
Trump said, "Mark Cuban is a guy who . . . puts so much pressure on the players. He wants to win so much, ya know, he wants to put himself in the position of the players. He wants to be a player, I guess. And he's not a player . . . [Cuban] probably always wanted to be a winner all his life, and if ya look like him, you can't be a winner. So he wants to put himself in the place of the players, so what happens is, the team choked." Trump then slammed Cuban about the Internet billionaire's short-lived reality show, "The Benefactor."
"Mark Cuban was extremely embarrassed when he copied 'The Apprentice' and failed," Trump raged. "They threw him off television like a dog. I wrote him a note and I said, 'Mark, you have absolutely no television persona. I wish you would have spoken to me previously or before you did this. I could have told you it was gonna fail.' And he failed. Same thing with the Mavericks. The Mavericks have a great team. They'll never win with Mark Cuban as the owner because he is not a winner."
Let's see you dance, sucka, you got nothin on me! Cuban's response:
Cuban responded to Trump's digs by e-mailing Page Six: "I guess Donald is still upset that he can't afford to buy an NBA team. No doubt the cash requirements of more than $10,000 created a problem for him. Hopefully he will sell enough Trump Steaks, Trump Perfume and Trump Dolls to save some money and buy a team. Then we can see how he does. Until then he is a wannabe that needs to get a new spiel."
Cuban stumbles at first -- I'm not sure making fun of Trump's financial situation is applicable, unless I'm missing something and Trump's developed an addiction to Faberge eggs. But he regains his footing by making fun of Trump's ability to throw his name on anything.
In this battle of billionaires, I side with Mark Cuban every day and twice on Sundays. As always, it's now on.
