Dallas Mavericks owner reveals hate for the Miami Heat

If you’re the best at anything you’re always likely to have a certain amount of haters ready to drag you down.

As much as it shouldn't really be 'part of the territory', it can generally be considered to be the norm in modern day sport… Manchester United are widely loved and hated in equal measures in soccer, Floyd Mayweather boasts an ever-growing entourage of fans who would pay to see him beaten in a boxing ring and the Miami Heat can profess to having their fair share of naysayers in the world of basketball.

One man who definitely falls into the latter category is Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban- an outspoken individual who is never shy of voicing his own opinions.

And it would seem that the hatchet has never really been buried between himself and the Heat, ever since his Dallas side were beaten in the NBA finals against the Miami outfit back in 2006.

The Mavs may have had their revenge in 2011, when they came out on top against LeBron James and co. but that hasn’t stopped Cuban from retaining a level of detest for the reigning NBA champions.

He’s quoted by Dallas Morning News as having said, when asked about his opinions of the Heat: “Hate’s a strong word, but it’s probably not strong enough.

“It’s not the individual players at all. It’s just the whole representation of 2006 still sticks with me.”

Now we’re all for a bit of fanciful hype, but surely Cuban has bigger fish to fry?
