Mark Cuban (Jokingly) Called Mikhail Prokhorov a Bad Word Last Night

The Mavs beat the Nets 102–89 in Dallas last night, and Mark Cuban took the opportunity to needle Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Before the game, Cuban talked about how Prokhorov doesn't make trades or attend all of his team's games, and things took a turn for the vulgar. Said Cuban, jokingly, via the News (censoring theirs): "He's a p—y." Just in case it wasn't obvious the comment was in jest, Cuban later clarified that he "said it jokingly," adding: "The guy is like a Russian Ninja and trains with every weapon known to man." In any case, Prokhorov is surely crafting his verbal response — or, who knows, maybe some sort of Russian ninja response — as we speak. [NYDN, NYP]
