Outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is at it again. Cuban’s latest Inc.com rant comes ‘coincidentally’ at a time when the NBA is again at a hush. Last time Cuban was in the news, it was because of misconstrued comments about race, but now Cuban apparently believes the American economy is doomed.
First the NFL is heading towards its destruction by adding an extra primetime game every week, and now Cuban feels student loan debt will lead to economic disaster: “The problem is that bubble has led to over a trillion dollars in student loan debt, and it’s having a significant impact on the economy.” Cuban added, “And I think that’s a real problem for the economy — and I think that bubble is going to burst.”
You know, that’s interesting. Where was all this foresight three years ago when Cuban decided not to re-sign Tyson Chandler? Cuban’s crystal ball apparently only can see all the doom and gloom that awaits the economy: “You’re going to see a repeat of what we saw in the housing market…and that’s going to lead to colleges going out of business.”
Speaking of repeats, if the Mavericks had re-signed Chandler in 2011, Cuban’s team would have repeated as champions. Of course, Cuban will probably say that these latest apocalyptic opinions were only intended for fellow billionaires or something. The strangest thing about these serious takes from Cuban is that he comes off really sour, quite unlike the fun-loving and boisterous Cuban seen at Maverick games.
Maybe Cuban needs to hang out with the WWE‘s Adam Rose one of these days.
