NBA: Mark Cuban Still Doesn’t Believe Russell Westbrook Is A Superstar

photo credit Mark Cuban definitely didn’t become a billionaire by being a dummy yet he seems to be one of the only people who isn’t smart enough to realize how much of a superstar player that Russell Westbrook is. You may remember back in April when the Thunder were facing the Mavs in the first round of the playoffs, Cuban said a true superstar can carry a mediocre roster to 50 wins and a postseason series win. He noted that the Thunder failed to make the playoffs in 2014-15, when Kevin Durant missed most of the season because of a foot injury. Cuban was wrong then and is still wrong now for trying to stand behind his original comments.

(Video) NBA: Mark Cuban Says The NBA Needs More Villains

Despite the Warriors record pace this season and Steph Curry hitting shots from the parking lot, the NBA as a whole hasn’t been that exciting. There are only a handful of teams that are legit contenders and most of the players seem more interested in being friends instead of hardcore competitors. Mavs owner Mark Cuban says what the NBA is missing to get the edge back and bring some excitement is having villains in the league. He referenced how when Lebron went to Miami they were looked at as villains and overall it was good for the league. Since nobody seems to be able to beat the Warriors I guess they could be considered villains to the rest of the league.
