Cuban recently said that he wanted to be fined one last time before league commissioner David Stern retires in February, and he got his wish.
I couldnt let the commish go without a proper farewell. Its been a fun 14 years of trying to create change and donating to the donut fund !—

For those keeping score at home, Cuban is not far away from totaling $2 million in fines from the league since he took over as majority owner of the Mavericks in January 2000.
Dallas entered the weekend with a 24-17 record in seventh place in the Western Conference standings.
