Mark Cuban trolls Trump at All-Star Celebrity Game

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wore jersey No. 46 in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in an apparent shot at President Donald Trump. So naturally, when choosing his number for the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Cuban went for number 46, apparently in response to the ongoing feud according to ESPN.

I know Mark Cuban well.

Cuban was asked on ESPN if he was trying to make a statement with the number and laughed off the question, claiming that he settled for 46 because 23 was taken. There has been talk of the Democratic Party recruiting Cuban to run opposite Trump in 2020.

Initially, Mark Cuban explained his number choice as being a shout out to Michael Jordan. He wore number 46 during the game.

Former Chief Branden Albert released by Dolphins
That being said, don't be shocked if the veteran is considering retirement after battling injuries for several years. Williams, 32, signed with the Dolphins last offseason after he was released by the Buffalo Bills.

The move seems to have been a jab at Trump, since the jersey number represents the number of the next US president.

"You've got to have fun with it". Last Friday, Cuban posted a series of six tweets in which he thumped Trump's plans and leadership style.

Cuban, who has never held public office, was a vocal supporter of Democrat Hillary Clinton, and trolled the #MakeAmericaGreatAgain Republican by showing up in the front row at one of their debates. Cuban, who loves Twitter as much as Trump, tweeted often during the election about his disdain for Donald Trump and pleaded with anyone reading his tweets not to vote for him. He became controversial because he wore a No.46 jersey in the game as a form of criticism for USA president Donald Trump.

Cuban finished the celebrity game scoreless with one rebound in 11 minutes of court time as his West team were well-beaten 90-57 by the East.
