[QUOTE=Olympiacos;707557]US sports media at it again, pushing for whatever Stern and Cuban want.
He wants the NBA to own, operate and profit on a global tournament using the league’s stars.
"The question is: Why would we partner with a current tournament rather than start our own?" Cuban said. "If done correctly, it can be NBA-owned and operated and have the potential to be just as large as the World Cup of soccer. That is a product, in my opinion, we want to own, not share.
“I don’t know what the NBA plan is, but the above is what I will be pushing for."
Mark Cuban is Mark Cuban.
He can say whatever he wants but forming a new world cup will become a complete joke unless the NBA is contracting all the players from all national-teams around the globe. There is little sense in what Cuban is saying and I doubt that there is much substance behind it. The NBA tried many times to control things and failed. Look to China as an example. The CBA did not fell for Stern's visions.
