Mark Cuban admits Mavericks tanked after missing NBA playoffs

NBC Sports

The Dallas Mavericks owner is at it again-and this time it could get him in trouble.

Cuban admitted on “The Dan Patrick Show” that the Mavs intentionally lost games after being eliminated from the NBA postseason.

“Once we were eliminated from the playoffs, we did everything we could to lose games,” Cuban told Patrick.

When asked how a team goes about tanking, Cuban indicated that they would play younger players because they have something to prove.
