Mark Cuban has long been a popular owner among fans, but ever since the Mavericks won the NBA Championship, it seems nearly every fan base clamors for him as an owner. Mets fan and comedian Bill Maher is no different. Recently, Cuban was on Real Talk with Bill Maher on HBO. Maher, a Mets fan, noted Cuban's potential interest on becoming an owner of the Dodgers, but asked him to "please buy the Mets."

Now, with David Einhorn coming on board for the Mets, it's hard to see a complete ownership change. Still, it just goes to show how universally wanted Cuban is becoming as an owner.

Watch the short clip below.

Mark Cuban could help out any MLB team if he owned it by making that team more relevant in American pop culture.  The Dallas Mavericks would be my favorite NBA team if Mark Cuban owned my favorite MLB team since I was 4 years old  (which was 23 years ago) the M-E-T-S! METS! METS!! METS!!!

the mets and dodgers will by default get owners with deep pockets because they are in NY and LA.
Um, NO, they won't.  Why are they both in the shape they're currently in?  Because the fools who bought both the Mets and the Dodgers were all hat and no cattle.

Franchises in the big TV markets are over-valued.  There just aren't that many Zillionaires available to buy teams like the Mets, Dodgers, Cubs, etc.  It usually takes an ownership team or committee.

Like others have posted, I wish the Pirates ownership would have sold the team to him. I am a Pittsburgh native who lives in Dallas, and I'd love to see Cuban (another Pittsburgh native) do something great with that team. Then again, would his high-energy personality translate into the slow-moving game of baseball - NBA and NFL, yes - baseball, I'm not sure.

Bsam...couldnt agree more with your post. Cuban buying a team like the pirates that he could return to their once proud form would be excellent. I know that baseball has been opposed to Cuban before, but if something like this were ever possible, it would be irresponsible of baseball to not allow it to happen.
