National Basketball Association fines Mark Cuban $600000 for tanking talk

24 February 2018

Sports Illustrated's bombshell story Tuesday night on the Dallas Mavericks' "corrosive workplace culture" included allegations of serial sexual harassment against former team president Terdema Ussery, plus discussion of how the Mavericks kept employing beat writer Earl K. Sneed until Tuesday.

Cowlishaw: What he said on your show was, "once we were eliminated" so you can kind of tolerate that. He spent 18 years with the team.

A recent flood of sexual harassment allegations against organizations and their higher-ups across various industries got deeper with scandals in the Dallas Mavericks workplace. It's heartbreaking. I'm glad it's all coming out.

"I read it this morning, I haven't talked to Mark about it yet and I'm probably going to hold off comments until I understand it", said Mayor Rawlings. "I was shocked. that our franchise, my franchise, that stuff like that was going on".

Buddy Pittman was brought in to head the Mavericks' HR after the initial investigation of Ussery in 1998.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said he trusted the outside investigators Cuban had hired would be allowed to get to the bottom of the allegations and provide recommendations to help the franchise move forward. The New York firm is headed by Evan Krutoy, a specialist in sex crimes.

Starting with the 2019 draft, the National Basketball Association will introduce new rules that will give each of the league's worst three times a 14% change of earning the top pick in the draft lottery, down from the 25% chance the worst team now has. The league said it would "closely monitor" the investigation. At the same time, the report says the organization continued to protect men.

Cuban has vowed to clean up the organization. "I was like, "Look, losing is our best option"," said Cuban. 'I'm embarrassed, to be honest with you, that it happened under my ownership, and it needs to be fixed'.

As Whedon said himself, it's a fascinating project and could serve as an excellent stepping-stone for a young female director . I do not feel that with the track record Warner Bros . now has with it's films, that it's a proper time for a Batgirl film.

Nobody interviewed in the investigations since Cuban became the owner in 2000 claimed he was involved in any way.

"Ussery, who left the Mavericks in 2015, was hardly alone".

There would be no reason that Nowitzki and other players would have or should have had any idea what was going on over on the business side of the Mavericks organization. "It came down to my final decision that I made". I abided by the details of that contract for four years, and received counseling during that period to avoid future instances.

Employees conducting themselves in an inappropriate manner, including one who watched pornography in the open, received "unsupportive or even intimidating responses from superiors".
