Former Cowboys Josh Adams scores 9 points in Mavericks' Summer League win

Former Cowboys Josh Adams scores 9 points in Mavericks' Summer League win”

At a Mavericks Summer League game on Sunday, Cuban sat down with the commentary team and shared an anecdote of one of his first conversations with the newest member of his team.

However, the veteran National Basketball Association owner did so reluctantly while immediately adding that his team would not be rebuilding if the Mavericks played in the lowly Eastern Conference instead.

"There's no question about it".

"Always (be) aware of what's going on around you", Cuban said, noted the ESPN clip. We'd be handling things completely different.

Speaking on ESPN, Cuban joked that he intends to kidnap NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, with a move to the Eastern Conference being the ransom.

Nowitzki became only the sixth player in National Basketball Association history to reach the 30,000-point mark this year when he broke the barrier in March. The Mavericks did win one championship (2011) and appeared in another (2006) but qualified for the Western Conference Finals only one other time (2003) in that stretch. Specifically, Cuban wanted the three National Basketball Association teams in Texas (Mavericks, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs) and the New Orleans Pelicans to be moved to the East.

The Mavericks are 2017 Orlando Pro Summer League champions and all thanks to Johnathan Motley, who made the game-winning jump shot with 0.3 seconds remaining to help the franchise to grab its first summer crown after an 83-81 overtime win against the Detroit Pistons on Thursday.

Playing in the East may just be the quickest ticket to success. And remember when the Atlanta Braves played in the NL West? If Cuban got his wish back in 2014, the National Basketball Association geographical map would be all out of whack anyway with the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves still stuck in the Western Conference, while teams west of them are playing in the East. Until then, Cuban's Mavs will have to settle with being in rebuilding mode.
