Dwight Powell gets more fouls called on him for doing nothing than anyone in the nba.— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) March 26, 2016
It's been a minute, but of course, this isn't the first time the Mavs' owner has used his platform -- whether Twitter or interviews -- to make clear his opinions about NBA officiating or rule changes that need to happen. His last fine was back in July during DeAndreGate -- $25,000 for comments made during the moratorium but before Jordan had reneged. We can probably anticipate that these comments will not go without notice by the NBA's League offices.
The Mavericks have been involved in a couple of games lately where calls or non-calls have meant the difference in the game. And Cuban doesn't usually comment on something this loudly without an ulterior motive, so we'll see what, if anything, comes of these comments. Either way, I'd expect Cuban's next fine to be coming down the pipeline soon.
