Mark Cuban: Blog Maverick

Here is the personal blog of Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban. I have heard a lot of people talk about this one, but I hesitated to look at it because I figured it would be almost exclusively about basketball and that didn’t particularly appeal to me. While he does talk about the NBA at times, this is definitely a site that non basketball fans (or even non sports fans, for that matter) can get something out of.

Mark Cuban has a lot of interesting things to say; probably because he is an interesting guy. He is a self-made billionaire. He is the owner of an NBA team. He is the chairman of an HD cable network. He is an eccentric personality; always yelling at referees and making fun of NBA officials in the press. He is an extremely clever and intelligent guy, and his blog follows suit.

There are some really good posts about the cable industry, about the internet and how it has evolved, about international business, about basketball, about advertising and the entertainment industry. You name it and he probably knows more about it than most people and has probably made millions of dollars through investing in it.

It’s a lot different than the other blogs I have been linking to, in that you won’t get a ton of humor out of it probably. But it will give you insights into large-scale things that you might not know anything about. I know I enjoy it, maybe some of you will too.
