Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says President Bill Clinton is bigger NBA fan than him


Former President Bill Clinton is a fan of many things – especially sports. So it shouldn’t come as much of a shock that Clinton enjoyed taking in an NBA game here or there.

However, according to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, not only is Clinton a fan of the NBA – he might be one of the biggest NBA fans in history, suggesting that Clinton is even a bigger fan that Cuban himself.

Speaking on the Jay Leno show recently, Cuban hinted that Clinton puts him to shame in terms of their fandom.

Per the Dallas Morning News:

Jay Leno: You also saw President Clinton.

Mark Cuban: Yeah, the day got ever weirder. I have lunch with President Obama, then I’m supposed to go to Chicago to give a speech at this thing called the Global Initiative. That’s when the NBA Finals are going on. I’m thinking, OK I’m going to get to Chicago … where am I going to watch the game? I get another e-mail … it’s like President Clinton is going to be at the hotel, would you like to watch the game with him? Let me just tell you, people think I’m crazy watching a game. President Clinton puts me to shame. Oh, my god. He’s crazy, until Hillary walked in.
