It’s Mark Cuban’s birthday. And apparently to celebrate, he’s considering a move to politics. According to Business Insider, which hit up Cuban on his Cyber Dust app, the Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank star would think about being Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate.
That doesn’t mean he’d actually do it though.
“Would I consider?” Cuban responded. “Yes.”
However, the “Shark Tank” star and outspoken investor said he would probably not end up accepting the hypothetical offer.
“Would I do it. Probably not,” he continued. “I’m not cut out for politics. At least [the] way they are now. Maybe in the future if Trump truly impacts how the game is played.”
Cuban doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind, getting out in public and doing just about anything he’s compelled to do. When you are a billionaire and own an NBA team, it’s perhaps easier to come out of your shell a little bit and take chances. And it doesn’t seem as though Mark lacks for self-confidence at all. Which is a good thing. We all should be ourselves as often as possible and wear who we are proudly.
But would potentially being Donald Trump’s vice president be the most absurd thing Cuban’s ever done? Hard to say. Here are just a few of the times Cuban did or said something pretty dang ridiculous.
