Very normal and good to judge people on how they process grief. Everyone does it differently and it’s fine.

I agree that death isn't enough, but that's not why Cuban did it.
Yeah, I don't think dying after you've retired in a helicopter crash is a legitimate reason for a team not associated with him to retire his number. It's a stretch..a huge stretch. I'd be much more ok with them retiring Duncan's number...and no, he doesn't even have to die (and no, I'd never retire Duncan's number even if he died with a plane full of nuns carrying food to needy children in Africa). The battles between him and Dirk are legendary and will always be a part of Mavericks lore.

Well, it caught on around the league, so Cuban is coming out of this looking like the good guy. The optics are on his side.

It's not your place to "call out" anybody.

Besides, we're here to discuss basketball only, not make personal attacks rich with irony. The moderator people said so.

You do realize that the whole discussion started because the user repeatedly attacked Cuban for his personal decisions how to handle the death of one of the biggest NBA icons in the past 20 years, the guy Cuban also faced the past 20 years etc etc.

Attacking Cuban for Billboards outside the AAC etc, that is not really "discussing basketball", right?

So going after me because of "personal attacks" because i critizied a user for his non basketball-related attacks against the team owner....yeah, thats also rich with irony.

Talk basketball here. Don’t go after others personally. Cuban is a public figure. Feel free to criticize him, but please don't attack posters.
