08:58 AM ET 12.11 | In a back-and-forth between billionaires that is reminiscent of a WWE plotline - equipped with scripted animosity, over-the-top personalities and Cold War undertones - Mikhail Prokhorov injected his dry humor into a public ribbing match with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. A day after Cuban called the Nets owner "a p---y," Prokhorov issued a response in the form of a pun from Russia. "I think Mark has it wrong," Prokhorov said. "I don't like cats."

A good defense is a good offense. Call him a **** ******. You'll be glad you did.

Typical Cuban, but then he can afford the six figure fines that go with shooting his mouth off

DWade is playing really good since the Dallas game. He has become the leader and the bigger voice in the team. There was one post conference I watched and DWade was sitting in the middle and was doing most of the talking. It's really showing on the floor also. Dampier is actually making a big difference. It seems as though he was the saviour. lol ... Anyways, enjoy the wins now but don't be dissapointed in the playoffs when they get eliminated because they're style will not work in the playoffs. They're winning by playing a fast game and we all know that the games slows down in the playoffs...

OPINIONS VARY AND DON'T REALLY MEAN MUCH. ANYONE CAN SPECULATE. ONLY RESULTS MATTER.

THAT'S WHY MY SPURS HAVE THE MOST CHAMPIONSHIPS SINCE 2003. THREE! MAYBE 4 BY 2012.

Prokorov is like 6'8.......He'd pummel cuban

Cuban is a 6'4 240-pound former rugby player. He would pwn that Russkie.

Which he does every chance he gets. Too bad he's not a winner. There is another loud mouth in Miami with the same problem.
