07:07 AM ET 07.23 | Leave it to Mark Cuban to take a concept to a new level. Listening to [Cuban] explain the hiring of new general manager Gerrson Rosas, it's difficult to tell whether Cuban is restructuring his front office or opening a sports science clinic. ... An exuberant Cuban said Rosas, 35, will provide day-to-day organization and management to the front office as the owner seeks to "push the envelope" in new technology areas, including an expansion of traditional analytics to what Cuban termed "bio-analytics." Cuban said that means exploration into areas such as "genetic testing to blood analysis and performance technology," apparently in an effort to better evaluate players. "If you want to keep pushing the envelope in new technology areas to give us an edge, you've got to hire somebody who has experience in managing those kinds of things," Cuban said.

No wonder they didn't sign D-Wil or Howard, their pee test failed.

Pee in a cup to evaluate players? Yeah..the fans are really going to buy into that load of crap. Just like they won't buy into the pile of crap that they will put on the floor again this year.

Cuban must be dropping the ball for a Texas fan to be this honest and disappointed. This past and next season have me feeling the same way about Jimmy and my Lakers.

Thank you for your candor...

I'm beginning to doubt what his priorities are. He is an attention-getter...

If bio-analytical data will mean better drafts, then I'm in favor of this.

The joke called Cuban continues. Ths is headed the Joe Dumars route folks. One ring, and a whole host of stupid decisions.
Who needs CP3 or DH12 when you got a cup full of pee!

The problem is that his experiments have failed. There are no shortcuts.

This will get as far as the 1st test - when the Players Union rep will show up with the Lawyers
