I'm going to willfully ignore the sad results of basketball games this weekend, and instead focus on a much more entertaining NBA story: Mark Cuban versus Donald Trump. Or, as I like to call it, rich people bitching at each other through the media.  From Page Six:

"Mark Cuban was extremely embarrassed when he copied 'The Apprentice' [with 'The Benefactor'] and failed," Trump raged. "They threw him off television like a dog. I wrote him a note and I said, 'Mark, you have absolutely no television persona. I wish you would have spoken to me previously or before you did this.  I could have told you it was gonna fail.'  And he failed.  Same thing with the Mavericks. The Mavericks have a great team. They'll never win with Mark Cuban as the owner because he is not a winner."

Cuban responded to Trump's digs by e-mailing Page Six: "I guess Donald is still upset that he can't afford to buy an NBA team. No doubt the cash requirements of more than $10,000 created a problem for him. Hopefully he will sell enough Trump Steaks, Trump Perfume and Trump Dolls to save some money and buy a team. Then we can see how he does. Until then he is a wannabe that needs to get a new spiel."

Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnnnnnn.  It's funny because Donald Trump is so poor.  Obviously, the Donald has gotten soft from his staged feud with Vince McMahon and from picking on mental weaklings like Rosie O'Donnell, who couldn't win a debate against an octogenarian with Alzheimer's. Unless maybe the debate was about "Why pie tastes more delicious after you deep-fry it."
