Mavericks owner Mark Cuban jokes about wanting to sign Justin BieberPosted by Inside Hoops
Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports:
“If I signed Dennis Rodman, I’m not above signing Justin Bieber — if he’s old enough to play,’’ owner Mark Cuban said Wednesday night. “I don’t know if he’s eligible.
“Could you check on that for me, because I’ll sign him. We can ask for an exception for Bieber Fever. Get the Bieber Fever NBA exception.’’
Bieber, who turns 17 on Tuesday, was voted the Most Valuable Player of the NBA Celebrity All-Star game last Friday in Los Angeles. He scored eight points and distributed four assists, but his East team lost to the West, 54-45.
“That guy can play,’’ Cuban said. “If we’re down a man, he’s the one I’ll sign.
“You’re talking about selling tickets.’’
