Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban doesn’t have a sense of humor as he gets Bleacher Report to delete Dirk Nowitzki tweet.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban isn’t happy with Bleacher Report after what they did over the weekend.
On Saturday, Bleacher Report tweeted a video of Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki air-balling a three-pointer with the caption Dirk Forever. Cuban then sent an email to David Levy, the president of Bleacher Report’s parent company Turner. With the subject line “Are you F–king kidding me?”
“I expect an apology immediately or you can expect me to take a very strong stand in support of one of the greatest players of all time,” he said in the email. “Who the f–k thinks this is remotely acceptable?”
Levy responded by saying that Dirk is one of the best out there and that Bleacher Report’s social media team uses bloopers sometimes. Cuban responded by saying that is wasn’t a blooper.
Bleacher Report has deleted the Nowitzski tweet.
Earlier today we deleted a tweet about Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk is an NBA legend in our eyes and will be forever.

The Mavericks are currently 22-35 during this disappointing NBA season for Mr. Cuban.
