It appears that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, upset about missing out on acquiring Deron Williams this offseason, has bought the Nets.com website domain and taken a swipe at the Nets franchise. If you go to Nets.com, you will see a picture of Mark Cuban sticking out his tongue and this message:
Looking for the New Jersey Nets?
Looking for the Brooklyn Nets?
They’re not here…but they SHOULD be!
After all, there’s just one team:
Also, at the bottom of the page, there is a message written in Russian that means “”Michael, have you noticed? Vilena wondered….” Of course, this message is directed toward Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and it references a Russian prostitute. In 2007, Prokhorov was arrested for arranging prostitutes for some of his guests. He was later cleared of the charges.
Mark Cuban is a very entertaining owner, but wow, this website is insulting. I wonder how long it will last. Nets – Mavs games were already going to be interesting and this website takes it to a whole other level. We shall await the Nets’ response, if indeed Mark Cuban did arrange to buy this website.
