Its Mavs Time !

I am so firedup for this season to start.  No predictions other than to say I think we are much better than last year and if we can stay healthy….

And of course off the court, we are always trying to do new fun things that create fun and value for our fans. From the new amazing VideoBoard (largest and highest resolution indoor board in the world !),  to the new soundsystem, because great sound matters ! And as always , we have lower ticket prices and great season ticket deals available. Some even include All  Star and Event tickets as well . has all the scoop.

You will also see continued improvements in the Mavs websites. ,,, all will have more original content,and we will be twittering and updating facebook pages with scoops, pictures, videos, everything and anything we can think of.  Most importantly, rather than the very limited AP post game reports that are the bane of the sports business, we will have complete write ups about every game minutes after the game is over.  So Mavs fans should make your starting point for all things Mavs !

We have also partnered with Hewlett Packard to create a really cool new opportunity for Mavs fans called The HP Insider (  We are going to be offering select Mavs fans the chance to go “deep inside” all things Mavs and become the ultimate insider. You will have access to pretty much everything that we are allowed to give you access to, and then some !  I dont want to give it all away, the scoop is on the Insider website, but lets just say you will not only get to sit next to me at a game, but we are going to take you with us on a road trip !

All you have to do is go to and upload a video showing me why you are the Mavs biggest fan.  If you are chosen, you get to go where no Mavs fans have gone before and HP is going to throw in a ton of really cool goodies to help you document your experience.  After all, you do need a new HP Touchsmart Laptop and an HP PhotoSmart printer to look all official and all when you travel with us and print up all the pics you take, dont you !

Thanks to  HP for coming up with this idea and supporting Mavs fans everywhere.  Its going to be a fun year !

  2. Mark,

    Big fan. Made it to about 5 games last year. Going to my 3rd this fall, tomorrow.

    I was in class tonight, and the topic of bioengineering came up. This thought struck me, and I instantly thought of you.

    According to my Computer Science professor, the cures to cancer, diabetes, and most other genetic mutations are not more than a decade or so from being discovered. It’s primarily a matter of a scientists collecting data (the process has begun) and a strong team of computer scientists and biogenetic engineers building software capable of analyzing the data and identifying the patterns that ultimately point to the cure.

    It’s still a very new field and bound to be a multi-billion (multi-trillian?) dollar industry — think about it, to have the cures to cancer and other genetic diseases?

    It just struck me that you could hire 250 of the BEST computer science and biogenetic researchers for what… $200k apiece? For a grand total of $50 mil / year. The cure’s just a matter of time. You get the best of them working for you, and that $50 mil / yr, even if it takes 10 years, is going to pale in comparison with the hundreds or thousands of BILLIONS of dollars the answers are worth to the healthcare industry.

    See, it’s not just the cure for cancer that’s going to be discovered. The system that can successfully analyze the data and discover the common patterns could be applied to ANY genetic mutation. Think about military (or even civilian) performance enhancers, healthcare products, designer babies, etc. What Hollywood portrays as science fiction is just a decade or so away from a realistic pharmaceutical mishap.

    I just thought, of all people to pave the way and reap the rewards, who better than you–who’ve already done it, on what will be a very small scale, looking back.

    And hey, if all fails… you’re out a whopping $0.5 billion after 10 years. I get the impression $0.5 billion isn’t going to drastically affect your quality of life. But to potentially be the mogul of the biggest industry we may see in our lifetimes….

    As for me, I’m just a web developer, but give me a shout-out if you like the idea.

    Go Mavs!

  3. Hi Mark,

    I realize this is not the best place for my topic but I couldn’t locate a direct email address for you.

    I am a software executive that has run into a problem with the SEC. Unfortunately, like you, I find myself being unfairly prosecuted by the SEC. I am fighting hard but ultimately I am finding it difficult to fight a powerful non-principal based and unjust regulatory body.

    It would be great if I could communicate with you directly (via email or phone) as I would like to run an idea by you that you might find intriguing and could potentially help me.

  4. Isn’t the Cowboys’ video board bigger? Hype is alright, but it’s even better when it’s true.

  5. New Additions Shawn Marion and lets not forget Drew Gooden will really help this team go from what appeared to be a lackluster upcoming season to an anything is possible season. If injuries do not slowly beset this team these new players will help Dirk and the crew surpass 50wins again!
    It was also good to see conscious of the Hard Cap and not a making himself a target during the recession.

  6. So I’m a Bobcats fan (lived in NC my whole life, got burned by the Hornets). Question: Does anyone think Bob Johnson is even 10% as excited for the NBA season? Do you think he knows it begins tonight? Also, I hope Michael Jordan finishes up his golf round this weekend in time to care about the team.

  8. Hell yeah!!

    So pumped for 8:30 tonight!!

    Ive never been to a basketball game, but I plan on going when we play NJ or philly, maybe Ill catch you at the game, we can have some brewskies and talk smack to their players, then we can get our asses kicked by all the fans in the stadium. 🙂

    as for the HP partnership,that would be great although there are probably better candidates for it, but I do love the mavs and would be ecstatic to do that,just might not be the best.

    Oh yeah, stress to the guys that they need to play as hard these first couple weeks as they will the last couple weeks because of josh’s injury, theyll want to get off to a fast start so they arent in a slump and have to rush josh back which wont help since I just read a report today that said josh has had a problem wit this ankle since college. So if thats the case, you should rest him as much as possible, and potentially you could be getting a brand new player back(hopefully improved) with proven skills just fresher and healtier than ever.

    Okay Im blabbing on and on, but damn it Ive waited long enough!

    GO MAVS!

  9. By the way in this article for your business plan you say the business must break even in 60 days and make a profit in 90 days.

    My business will break even in 40 days and will make a profit in 70.

  10. Dear Mr. Cuban

    Hello, my name is Brett Pollak. I am a business graduate school student at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. I am currently starting my own web site that will VASTLY improve the quality of life for all college students. I know you shot to the top and I respect that and want to emulate what you did. You are a serial entrepreneur and have had success in multiple industries. I think this is a project you will find very interesting and extremely profitable. The website is almost done and will be live in about two weeks. The start-up costs are next to nothing and the web site is guaranteed to break even in a matter of months and will make a huge profit not too long afterwards. I would love to share the idea with you and would love for you to be involved. Feel free to call me at 407-461-6103 or email me at if you are interested.

    Warm Regards,
