Did you know that Cuban and Finley are going to be an Wheel of Fortune in May while they are in Texas? It's friend week or something. I saw it at dallasmavericks.com.

i caught the very end of it, when he was talking about Wang...was the entire interview quality?

The first little segment they basically talked about how he became a billionare. And then they talked about all the fines and suspensions. Didn't really talk about the team really but that's partly because Leno never really asked.

I'd say it was a good interview. Kinda funny i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .

"Cuban On Leno
Owner Looks Sloppier Than Camryn Manheim

By Mike Fisher – DallasBasketball.com

Luckily for Mavs owner Mark Cuban, a Tuesday guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,’’ he has a skill for overcoming first impressions.

“I’ll tell you one thing about billionaires,’’ said Leno upon greeting Cuban, who was wearing a long-sleeved Mavs T-shirt. “They know how to dress.’’

Cuban, though, got Leno and the Southern California audience on his side with his now-familiar lucky-regular guy routine. Cuban told the old story about his Indiana hoops passion and his radio-on-the Internet thing, and how he turned the concept and $3,000 into billionaire territory.

Leno did lead Cuban into some interesting areas, though:

Cuban on Wang Zhizhi: “The Big Wang. … The Big Wang. At first, he was like the deer in the headlights. His idea of excitement was going to the Hard Rock Café. Now he’s getting more familiar. … He’s thinking he’s cool with the women now.’’

Cuban on overpaying for the Mavs: “I was a huge Mavericks fans, and the Maverick sucked for so long. Before, for us to win 10 games…
(Cowboys owner) Jerry Jones called me up when I bought the Mavs and everybody in Dallas said I overpaid. He said, ‘Mark, when everybody told me I overpaid, I knew they were wrong.’ Next year, we’re at the new American Airlines Center, which is beautiful. We’re going to make some money, going to do well, have some fun.

Cuban on being fined, and Leno’s questioning whether the amounts are arbitrary: “Yeah, it’s like Wheel of Fortune. Anything they want. … Obviously, I pissed off David Stern. Pissed him off somewhere down the line…’’

Cuban on Dennis Rodman: “We had him for about a week. And he was also my roommate. … He’d sit around all day watching the Cartoon Network.’’

Cuban on Mavs-Jazz: “It’s going to be a battle, it’s a war. The first time we played them Karl Malone knocked out Dirk Nowitzki. … Hopefully we win, but I’m not predicting it.’’

Cuban’s overall performance? We give it a B. He was no Robin Williams, but he was good enough not to have to follow hefty actress Camryn Manheim anymore."
