Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was on hand Tuesday night for his team's visit to Staples Center to play the Lakers. After taking a moment to reminisce about Shaquille O'Neal, who will have his jersey retired by the Lakers at halftime, Cuban gave a jab to former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. "I have great respect for Phil, Jeanie's husband, as he'll be now be known," Cuban said.  "Someone's got to be the first housewife of the Lakers. " Jackson and Jeanie [Buss] became engaged to marry in January, although they've yet to officially tie the knot.

It came as no surprise that the NBA on Saturday levied a $100,000 fine on Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban after he walked onto the Staples Center court following his team's late collapse in a 129-127 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday to give the officials a piece of his mind. With about five minutes to play, the Mavericks were on the verge of blowing out the Clippers, having built a 17-point lead. Dallas went into a funk, the Clippers got hot and Cuban was obviously bothered by the outcome.

When a reality TV show is titled "Shark Tank," it's only reasonable for the judges to have some teeth. Mark Cuban, for one, is happy to oblige. At a recent Envelope Emmy Round Table, Cuban and his three fellow panelists - Carson Daly of "The Voice," Cat Deeley of "So You Think You Can Dance" and Jeff Probst of "Survivor" - talked about calling out too-clever contestants. "Sometimes a company will come [on 'Shark Tank'] and they're relatively successful, and they're trying to play us," Cuban said.

Leave it to TMZ to get former Lakers legend and the face of Dodgers ownership, Magic Johnson, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban on the record in support of gay athletes. In the wake of Johnson giving interviews in support of his gay son, Earvin Johnson III, the celebrity gossip website asked pointed questions of the basketball great. "If that ever happened, I would support them 150 percent," Johnson said when asked what he'd do if a player on the Dodgers announced that he was gay. "First of all, as an owner, you really have to support the person, you really do, and then help educate the public," Johnson added.

The moment Matt Barnes jumped, the Dallas Mavericks bench went crazy. Pau Gasol had just launched a corner three-pointer, and Barnes jumped so he could tip in a possible putback. It wasn't needed. Gasol's three-pointer swished into the net and marked one of many clutch plays that led to the Lakers' 112-108 overtime victory Sunday over the Dallas Mavericks.  The play gave the Lakers a 103-101 lead with 3:48 left in overtime, but the Mavericks believe the basket shouldn't have counted.

Talked on Monday night to Mark Cuban , owner of the Dallas Mavericks, and the guy many fans believe can save the Dodgers if allowed to buy the team. If Cuban lives up to the hype, he's gets his own TV show here. He's more Hollywood than Frank & Jamie ever were, and they were really working at it. Cuban also has lots of money, which makes him different too. Forbes recently ranked him the 459th richest person in the world. Someone needs to breathe some life into the Dodgers, and who better than someone with a big mouth, big pockets and who would be a big pain for Bud Selig ?

Imagine a Grammy trip for the Lakers that starts in London before going on to Paris, Rome, Madrid and Berlin. Maybe they would rename it the Royal Albert Hall trip. Incoming NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said this week he was open to the idea of European expansion, provided the global economy recovers and potential host cities construct modern arenas. And if the NBA goes overseas, it would probably go all in. "It's most likely that if we were to come to Europe," Silver told reporters before the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Atlanta Hawks at a sold-out O2 Arena in London on Thursday night, "it would be with a division rather than a single team, for the sake of logistics.

Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, won a lengthy fight with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday when a Texas jury cleared him of insider-trading charges. The SEC had accused Cuban of using non-public information about Mamma.com, a Canadian Internet company, to make trades that helped him avoid about $750,000 in losses. Cuban, 55, denied the charges during testimony at the federal courthouse in Dallas. A nine-member jury deliberated about four hours before clearing Cuban.

The Lakers weren't the only team that unsuccessfully bid on the services of free agent center Dwight Howard. The Dallas Mavericks made the full pitch, including an animated video promising the Mavs as the key to global domination. On Saturday, Dallas owner Mark Cuban blogged about the state of his team and the failed Howard pursuit. "I do have to say the meeting with Dwight was very interesting. He is a smart guy. Much smarter than people give him credit for," wrote Cuban.  "He is also a very, very good listener.

Reality TV bestows upon the viewing public a glut of entertainments: dancers portraying flitting hummingbirds trying to seduce a blooming flower; entrepreneurs who've found an extra use for pillow cases by making them into dresses; adventurers threatening to urinate on rice (and beans); even four of music's top performers swirling in big red chairs. And the ratings come pouring in. The Envelope gathered four faces of reality TV (some of whom double as executive producers) - Carson Daly of NBC's "The Voice," Cat Deeley of Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," Jeff Probst of CBS' "Survivor" and Mark Cuban of ABC's "Shark Tank" - to talk about longevity in the genre, the push and pull of dealing with contestants and the waning power of "American Idol.

Frank McCourt contends he is the sole owner of the Dodgers and insists the team is not for sale. Jamie McCourt contends she is a co-owner, and her lawyer has said she has lined up financing for a possible bid to buy out her estranged husband.

It's easy enough to pick out the star of a sitcom or drama: Just look for the person whose character the title refers to or whose name comes up first in the credits. Reality TV, however, can be trickier. Is it the host? One of the judges? A contestant? At a recent Envelope Emmy Roundtable about reality TV, longtime "Survivor" host Jeff Probst offered his own theory. "The star of 'Survivor' is the format," Probst said. "It works. It works all over the world. " He added that the same could be said of his fellow panelists' shows: Carson Daly's "The Voice," Mark Cuban's "Shark Tank" and Cat Deeley's "So You Think You Can Dance?"
