Traditionally, football, basketball, baseball, and lacrosse teams that win championships in their respective leagues, take a visit to the White House, and meet the president.
But the NBA neglected to plan an easy trip for the Mavericks this year, so owner Mark Cuban took matters into his own hands. Cuban told ESPN:
“There’s no point in calling them. It’s bull—- by the league not to schedule it. I figured I’d do it myself since the league wasn’t smart enough to figure it out. How can you be that stupid? All you’ve got to do is when you’re putting in the scheduling software, say Dallas at Washington, yes. They managed to get Dallas and Miami and all the games set on certain days.”
The Mavericks will head to the White House next Monday before they travel to Detroit and Boston for games.
