Video: Mark Cuban rips NBA bracelet sponsor, trashes display


Mark Cuban has never been one to keep his mouth shut about something he disagrees with. So now that the NBA has signed a sponsorship deal with a product Cuban previously called a scam, there was only ever one outcome.

As reported by ESPN Dallas, Cuban took to YouTube last week with a message for the NBA and its sponsor Power Balance bracelets – one of a few companies that make similar rubber bracelets that claim to improve athletes’ performance. He didn’t mince words…or actions:

Cuban had previously been pitched an idea similar to Power Balance bracelets on “Shark Tank,” an ABC reality show for aspiring entrepreneurs for which Cuban is a judge. Cuban dismissed the idea as a scam then, as well.

NBA team branded Power Balance bracelets currently sell for $32.99 at the NBA store.

He's right, just like all that crap they sell to golfers.  Either you got it or you don't.  People will buy the latest tonic or magic water.  


Good for Cuban, he stands up for what he believes in even if it might hurt his bottom line and/or for which he might get fined!
