Audio: Cuban tones down the hate

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was on the Dan Patrick show this morning. When I heard he would be on, I make sure to listen, because you can always expect him to stir something up, especially during the playoffs.

After all, Cuban just recently told ESPN that he hates the Spurs.

This morning, though, Cuban was pretty tame and even complimentary to one Spur, Manu Ginobili.

“I like watching Ginobili too, as long as he’s not playing us,” Cuban said.

Dan Patrick also asked Cuban if he fired the person that decided to take Gordan Giricek over Manu, to which Cuban replied “I should have fired myself.”
