Mark Cuban Continues to Troll Trump By Saying Rival NBA Player Benefitted From All-Star ‘Voter Fraud’

When last we posted about Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban on the subject of President Donald Trump, it seemed as though he had given up on trolling Trump, as he had done throughout the general election campaign.

But now, it appears the brief detente has concluded, as Cuban is back on the offensive.

In remarks published by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Mavericks owner sarcastically
referenced Trump’s unsubstantiated voter fraud claims by mentioning the four NBA All-Star ballots cast for Golden State Warriors backup center JaVale McGee. McGee seldom sees playing time, which makes the All-Star votes for him difficult to explain.

But Cuban’s got the answer.

“There must have been voter fraud,” Cuban said. “Because I would have bet JaVale McGee really got three million, and him and A.J. Hammons (a Mavericks backup center who also seldom plays) probably split that. I know I was registered with five different teams, and I’m not eligible to vote.”

Cuban, presumably tongue-in-cheek, said he was calling for an “executive investigation,” and said he planned to meet with NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

“We’re going to get to the heart of this, I truly believe. If we can’t protect the integrity of All-Star voting, this league has serious problems. I think Space Ghost even got a vote in there.”
