Mark Cuban On NBA Ref Scandal

Since former NBA ref Tim Donaghy has been investigated for betting on games he’s a officiated in, I’ve wondered what Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, would say.

Would he blast the NBA? He’s always been tough on NBA refs.

Cuban took the high road. Afterall, why slam the league since he is an owner. He wants fans and sponsors to know he is selling a credible product.

This is his take from his website

As bad as the allegations facing the NBA today are, its also an opportunity to face every allegation that has ever been directed towards the NBA and its officials and pre empt them from ever occuring in the future.

Calamity can be a catalyst for significant change.

There are any number of examples in the business world where calamity led to better management, better communications, greater transparency and even better products. As the proverb goes, Necessity is the Mother of Invention.

The NBA took a hit today. Behind that hit is a catalyst and opportunity for significant change that could make the NBA stronger than it ever has been. Its a chance to proactively put in place people, processes and transparency that will forever silence those who will question the NBA’s integrity.

I have complete confidence that David Stern and Adam Silver will do just that and the NBA and our officiating will be all the stronger for it.
