One of the most outspoken and popular NBA owners, Mark Cuban from the Dallas Mavericks, said that he’s willing to become Hillary Clinton’s running mate in her United States presidential bid if the latter offered the position.
“Absolutely,” Cuban said via NBC’s Meet the Press when asked about the possibility of being the vice president of the potential Democratic presidential candidate. Cuban also said that he likes that Clinton is clear on her “thought out proposals” on various issues but that he’s glad that she’s clear on her “stand on issues.”
“If she’s willing to listen, if she’s willing to, you know, hear other sides of things, then I’m wide open to discussing it,” Cuban added.
Cuban made clear his stand as an anti-Donald Trump in a previous interview.
“There’s that guy who’ll walk into the bar and say anything to get laid. That’s Donald Trump right now to a T. But it’s all of us who are going to get f—–,” Cuban said in another interview via recode.net.
Mark Cuban took ownership of the Dallas Mavericks since 2000. The Mavericks featuring Dirk Nowitzki won a title in 2011 when the Mavericks came back in the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat led by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
Mark Cuban was also asked about the question of being the US presidential candidate in 2022. The Mavericks owner answered a “no comment”, which means Mark Cuban could be considering running for the job in the future.
