08:06 AM ET 07.26 | The CBA is certainly behind Mark Cuban's approach to building the Mavericks, but not necessarily to the degree some critics -- and fans -- may have painted. At some point, the Mavs believe, their ability to absorb contracts with cap space will facilitate a major trade, or being a rare big-market team with cap space will ultimately land a big fish in free agency. If either occurs, be sure that Cuban won't be afraid to cross the luxury tax line on a year-to-year basis to build a contender around a superstar with an eye on only the four-in-five chronic taxpayer crackdown. "I expect to go into the luxury tax in the future," Cuban said, although declining to specify the obvious scenario in which he would. "I'm not going to lay down my cards in public."

Cuban sees luxury tax in Mavs' future...

Funny how not spending to repeat will suddenly cause one to spend in hope of a dream!

Forgot to add the below to the Met's woes:Be involved in a Ponzi scheme and pay back millions...

James Dolan, Woody Johnson, Fred Wilpon are disgraces. The only difference is that the Knicks don't diserve this dishonor......can't say the same for the Jets....Tebow, wow, or the Mets.....can you name someone on that team asides from David Wright?.......that says it all and have been for that joke of a team.

People on FanNation just like to complain I've noticed. They don't even care if they are correct they just let loose with criticism.

People like to have fun in different ways... criticizing for the pleasure of being a critic is fun. It's a full time job for some people so don't take it in a negative way. By the way how do you feel about Dwight saying... 'get me outta Borelando'?

Trade Dirks a-ss while he still has value it cant hurt he traded the heart of team. Cuban gave up Chandler, Terry, Kidd, I cant think of his name but I know hes from NC and played SG

Dirk was a big disappointment last year and Dallas shouldve sued the Lakers for trading for the dead weight with Odom

Jesus Christ!!!!! If you keep up with Basketball at all you would know that Dirk has a No Trade clause in his contract. And he wants to retire as a Dallas Maverick. And Dallas showed that they can build a Championship team out of spare parts and Dirk. In hindsight they should of kept Chandler somehow or another. But they have replaced everyone one else you mentioned with someone of at least equal talent during this offseason. Except for the phantom SG from NC?
