The enigmatic owner of the Dallas Mavericks
Travels from TX

When Mark Cuban purchased the Dallas Mavericks in January of 2000, he got the attention of the sports world with his whatever-it-takes attitude to win. The team responded with a trip to the playoffs in 2001, which was their first time since 1988. Prior to the Mavericks, Cuban founded MicroSolutions, which he sold to CompuServe. He then co-founded Broadcast.com, which was sold to Yahoo! in July of 1999. An active investor in leading and cutting-edge technologies, Cuban is a sought-after speaker for corporate events.
