07:58 AM ET 03.08 | An unnerving midair incident over the weekend for the Bulls ended in a nice gesture from Mark Cuban. On Saturday night, the Bulls were flying to Indianapolis for Sunday's game against the Pacers. "Apparently a compressor in engine No. 3 had some trouble, and it sounded like it exploded, but I guess it's like a jet engine backfire, which is very loud," Bulls radio analyst Bill Wennington said Monday on ESPN 1000's "Waddle & Silvy Show." ... "Honestly, it was really scary," Bulls television analyst Stacey King told "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on Tuesday. "We thought we were going to go down." ... [Cuban] lent the Bulls the Mavs' plane to fly to San Antonio on Monday night and to return after Wednesday's game.

Typical of the unwashed masses. A compressor stall (which amounts to pretty much absolutely nothing) on a modern airliner equates to "Honestly, it was really scary. We thought we were going to go down."

Idiots, all.

That's one thing really great about Cuban. He is very generous and does a lot of great things for the community. We know what he does for the wounded soldiers but he does other things such as giving discounts to local schools for students to attend games...

for sure.

Then Cuban got rid of all his planes because he thought he was going to get the Millenium Falcon and the starship Enterprise.
