Mark Cuban rips NBA over bracelets

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes that one of the NBA's marketing deals is "a scam," and he said Monday that he banned the product from the team's locker room.

Cuban made his opinion clear in a video he posted to YouTube last week in which he criticized Power Balance bracelets before throwing the display case that was in the Mavericks' locker room in the garbage.

"See this stuff?" Cuban said on the video, grabbing the display. "It was a scam when they were on 'Shark Tank.' It's still a scam. I don't care if the NBA was dumb enough to sign an agreement; this is going where it belongs."

1. He's an interesting individual

He claims to be a libertarian of sorts, but says paying taxes is patriotic and he voted for Obama. He gave Dan Rather his TV show on his network. His team also manages to win a lot of games.
