08:13 AM ET 01.05 | Phil Jackson may be too distracted by his team's issues to notice, but Mark Cuban is name-calling. Cuban was asked what he thought of Jackson saying that the Mavericks would have a tough time overcoming the loss of Caron Butler -- which by the way was a pretty benign comment in and of itself. That didn't stop Cuban from throwing some jabs Jackson's way. "I love that Jeanie Buss' boy toy had something to say about us," Cuban said of Jackson, who dates the Lakers' owner's daughter. "I don't know if it was his thought or Jeanie's thought, but it's nice to know she lets him speak in public about other teams."

Damn!

Thats a way to get black balled in the next Owners meeting.

I wonder if Phil has Bret Harts number.

Cuban is giving Phil Buss a little of his own medicine. Mavs all the way.

Go Heels!!!!

Hey with all the mind games and such Phil pulls nice to see someone took the bait. That is one of the funniest lines I heard of in awhile.

Cuban can throw all the barbs he wants. Without Butler, Dallas is done....period

Never had a problem before with Cuban's antics and crazy babbling until now. What Jackson said is true..I remember Butler was great for the LAKERS, Wizards and has been nothing but stellar for the MAVS. Overcoming his loss will be tough.

Cuban has been after Jackson for years to coach his underachieving squad and each time Phil has dissed him. All that money and no brains!!!!!!!! Grow up, dude!

Cuban cracks me up. Wish I was Jeanie Buss' boy toy!

I agree. A lot of people don't like Cuban, but he entertains me. And the Buss lady is certainly easy on the eyes.

Cuban can't spar with Phil in any form of intellectual dialogue and is supremely jealous of his success so he makes sohomoric comments like these....pathetic, get a life Mark and work on your team and try for just once to win something
