Cuban Flattered 'Shark Tank' No-Show Could Have Factored In Williams' Decision

Mark Cuban responded to comments from Deron Williams that his absence from the Dallas Mavericks' meeting may have made a difference in his decision.

Cuban couldn't attend the meeting because he was taping an episode of 'Shark Tank'.

“I’m a big D-Will fan, but I’m kind of surprised that he would throw his front office under the bus like that by saying that I would make a difference,’’ Cuban said on Tuesday. “I would have expected him to say – like I’d expect one of our guys to say – ‘Hey I’m so thrilled with the front office and the moves we made and our team that it wouldn’t have mattered what he did.’

“That’s what I expect our guys to say and that’s the way I feel about our team. Again, I’m a big D-Will fan, but it’s not about individual players, it’s about building a team. And I really think we put together a good team for the current team and the future.

“He’s a superstar point guard, but my goal is to build a team. That’s the important thing, to try to win championships.

“I’m flattered that he thought my presence would have made more of a difference than what the Nets’ management did.’’
