I just finished watching the Dallas Mavericks vanquish the Lebron-led (or not led) Miami Heat. I can tell you that there is a stark difference in class. First, you’ve got the mega-hyped, Lebron James who held “The Announcement” last year to bolt from Cleveland. Everyone outside of South Beach was rooting against him.

Mark Cuban is the bombastic owner of the Dallas Mavericks. He just won his first NBS championship and what’s he do? He invites the club’s original owner, Donald Carter, to receive the championship trophy on stage. That’s class.

Leadership is about actions. Mark Cuban showed tremendous leadership, character, and class tonight.
