Bitch Slap of the Week

In an Ali-Liston sized upset, it's not Harry Reid kicking ass and (secretly, behind closed doors) namingtaking names. It's the Mavnificient Benefecator telling Chuckie and the Jet what's what, and then, just in case we didn't get it the first time, doing it again.

A sample:

Let me just say this. There is a reason why Kenny and Charles haven't gotten head coaching jobs. There is more to running a team these days then thinking you know what you are talking about. Kenny, if you want to bust on us for switching on the pick and roll, get some stats to back it up. We track conversion rates on everything we do. High pick and roll, elbow pick and roll, whatever, we track it. If its not working Kenny, we adjust. I know that is probably a new concept to you and Charlie B, but thats the NBA of 2006. With all that money you guys make (hey if you are going to talk salaries, lets see how you like it), go out and hire some kids to track what actually happens in a game rather than having TNT bring in kids to go out and get donuts.

(emphasis mine)

As Simmons might say..."Th-that's Mark Cuban's Music!

Update: Intern Guy, Intern Guy, Look-at-me, Look-at-me beat me to the link. And claims that Woe will befall Cuban for taking on Messr. Smith. Steel cage match anyone?
