Browsing about some time ago, I came across Mark Cuban’s blog at . I’ve always found him to be a refreshing character in an otherwise bland field. He’s what you get when a truly passionate fan takes the reigns of his/her favourite team and makes things happen.

I’ve always been a big supporter of former players heading into coaching and management. Throughout the years, we’ve seen many former greats take up a position behind the bench or in the front office. I thought it was great to see the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Michael Jordan take up ownership of the Phoenix Coyotes, Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Wizards respectively.

But when Cuban came about and purchased the Dallas Mavericks, he really changed how things worked. He pampered his players. He protected his players. He was out-spoken about the problems in the league. And, he loved the game. You can see it when he’s out there courtside. I think he’s a prime example why we needs more ‘fans’ in the league.
