Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, joined the “Morning Joe” on MSNBC this morning and had some interesting things to say about Phil Jackson
Cuban, was asked by one of the hosts, Willie Geist, about the possibility of a 2nd round match-up with the Lakers in this years NBA playoffs.
“Which would be a blast! Can you imagine the seventh game against the Lakers and Phil Jackson’s career, possibly the end of his career, comes down to a game with the Mavericks? I would love that!”
So you want to end Phil Jackson’s Career? Geist asked
“In a heartbeat!”
Both the Lakers and Mavericks have been, two of the top teams in the Western Conference for quite some time, yet they have never faced each other in the playoffs. Since losing to the Heat in the 2006 NBA finals the Mavs have only advanced to the 2nd round once (2009).
Dallas has been beat three of the last four seasons in the first round of the playoffs.
