Mark Cuban talks about commissioners

Cuban continued, “David is very self-aware. And I don’t think I can emphasize this enough: That’s a huge compliment when you tell someone in a position of authority that they’re self-aware. Look at Major League Baseball. Bud Selig has no self-awareness whatsoever. He goes on rants, he goes on missions, he takes people on. And he’s not self-reflective. I think David is the exact opposite. He will raise the hammer and be forceful, but if something isn’t working, he’ll back down.”

Apparently Cuban has given up on ever owning an MLB team.

I like Mark, but the next time any sport has a self-aware commissioner, it will be the first.

I don't know, did you see Stern calling for boos at his last draft?

Everything's relative. Compared to Bud, Stern probably is rather self-aware.

Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations!

I know, but seriously. I'm not sure I've ever seen someone lacking self-awareness quite as much as Bud does.

I think Bud's ideal for a sports commissioner is a combination of David Stern and Vince McMahon.

Bud should take a bunch of steroids himself and then rig the outcomes of games so he can become World Champion of Major League Baseball.
