Cuban Hopes Lakers are Noncompetitive Forever

Mark Cuban, billionaire entrepreneur and the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, joined The Fred Roggin Show to talk about Roger Goodell’s suspension of Adrian Peterson, looking the other way on off-the-court problems, competitive balance in the NBA, and more. While Cuban admits that 36 years old is not as old as it once was, thanks to better training programs and advanced in medical science, he also says that he hopes Kobe Bryant’s Lakers stay noncompetitive for a long time.

(Said Cuban:) As far as the Lakers go, I think there are going to be a lot of teams that are saying, “I’ve got a ton of cap room,” and signing three big free agents to come play for them. Los Angeles has always been considered a destination city, so maybe they feel that’s a valid strategy. You know me, Fred. Personally, I just hope they suck forever.

Ben Simmons on NBA Debut: ‘It felt like I was playing 2K’

Ben Simmons finally made his long-awaited NBA regular-season debut against the Wizards in Washington on Wednesday night. And after his extended wait to wear the Philadelphia 76ers jersey in a meaningful game, he said he felt initially like he was in a video game.

“It felt like I was playing 2K, honestly,” Simmons said postgame.

“Just looking at Joel Embiid out there with the lights on his jersey. I was like, ‘man, I’m actually here.'”

Simmons was drafted with the first overall pick by the Sixers in the 2016 draft, but he missed the entire 2016-17 season while recovering from foot surgery to repair a Jones fracture. He suffered the injury on Sept. 30, 2016, less than a month before the start of the regular season. The Australian was originally expected to miss three months, but was eventually ruled out for the entire season.
