Last week, the Dallas Mavericks organization came out with the mother of all mea culpa after owner Mark Cuban ducked punishment from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for gross sexual misconduct and a hostile-to-women workplace culture in the business office.
Cuban’s excuse, that he was wrapped up in the basketball operations side and had left the day-to-day business to his underlings, became a demonstration of why you should avoid doing exactly that if you’re the top guy on the pyramid.
Now, it’s time to find out whether Cuban can put his money where his mouth is because a new heap of allegations just arrived courtesy of The Dallas Morning News, and how Cuban and the Mavericks respond will go a long way toward how the NBA treats them going forward.
ESPN reported Friday that the league office indeed has a very close eye on the team as new threats of scandal loom.
This time, it’s longtime team photographer Danny Bollinger who is at the center of the controversy.
