Mark Cuban is not your typical NBA owner. You knew this already. Not every suit wants their hands on every aspect of the organization and provide input on personnel decisions. Many find Cuban's style appalling, but one owner in particular could learn a thing or two from the Maverick.
Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley has just now decided to question the value he got in exchange for Pau Gasol.
“I don’t know if I got the most value,” Heisley confessed. “Maybe our people should’ve shopped (Gasol) more and maybe we would’ve gotten more, done a better deal. Maybe Chris did call every team in the league. I don’t think he did, but maybe he should’ve…”As you can see, they're really on top of things in Memphis.
It doesn't take an NBA die-hard to see which team got hosed in the Pau Gasol for scraps trade that Lakers GM
Heisley, who claims to be great friends with Jerry West, is certain Mr. Logo had nothing to do with the trade. Whether he did (which he did) or not isn't even the issue anymore. The concern for Griz fans should be with the intelligence of the front office.
Meanwhile, I'll await word from Heisley confirming that he believes the Lakers will make the NBA Finals. He's quick like that.
