Devil's Advocate for Mark Cuban

That Dirk injury today is pretty great for us suns fans right now.  Granted, I'd prefer spanking them at full strength, but this late in the season and this tight a playoff race merits at least some joy from this outcome.  Mark Cuban is in a tricky spot right now.  His centerpiece is gone, and a recent argument with Coach Avery Johnson must have him reeling.  I liked that he wore that shirt today that said Avery's team.  In regards to why he wore that shirt.....Look most of us probably think he is an ahole, would hate to work for a boss like that, and would despise having someone trying to do your job from the bench by shouting plays and matchups.  He wore that shirt today as a public apology, he knows hes wrong, but that intense passion for the game and the fact that its his money usually gets the best of him.  All this aside, is what we hate most about this guy all stem from his desire to win.  Maybe he is some basketball-junkie, good but not good enough type who happens to be a billionaire and bought a team to satisfy his shortcomings.  If not, can we really blame him for wanting to win and being emotional about it.  You can argue that if he wants to win he should let the coach do his job and let the players focus, but how can one stay mum about something they feel so passionately for?  He doesn't sit there in a suit or in a box in the rafters, he is right behind his team wearing a different jersey or t-shirt to show off his colors every night.  How helpless does he feel, especially when his team embodies meltdown?  Charles Barkley said pre-Shaq that the toughest guy for the suns was the kicker ala Nash.  Who do the Mavs have?  At least we had a player that was the toughest guy on our team, the mavs have the owner.....or Jerry Jones to continue with the football analogy.  Should we perhaps give Cuban a break just cause he wants to win and be part of his team other than paying the bills?  Or do you still just think he is garbage for meddling?
