Trump clearly took exception to Cuban’s comments on Bills buy-out.
Wealthy businessman Donald Trump has hit back at comments made by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban regarding his possible purchase of the Buffalo Bills.
Cuban responded to questions regarding Trump’s potential interest in the NFL franchise and insisted that he wouldn’t be able to afford them by himself.
The outspoken Mavs owner believed that he would have to put together a group in order to buy them and then it would be interesting to see what they did with the franchise.
However, Trump has undoubtedly taken exception to his comments and hit back by addressing the fact that he is worth more and believes that Cuban is better served looking in-house and considering how he has been rejected by other teams in the past.
“Mark Cuban is a lightweight whose net worth is a fraction of mine. He was rejected by baseball and probably plenty of others! By the way, I watched him play golf and he is a total non-athlete – zero clubhead speed. He lives vicariously through his basketball players,” Trump said, according to TMZ.
“By the way, the Dallas Mavericks deal is syndicated and his partners have been fighting him over poor management. While the Bills deal would be easily handled by me, if I chose to do it, almost all sports deals are syndicated.”
Trump was clearly irritated by the suggestion that his bank account isn’t big enough to cater for the purchase of an NFL franchise, and for some reason or other he also got personal in his attack as it becomes apparent he probably doesn’t like Cuban too much.
Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether or not the NBA franchise owner has a point, as it will become clear in time if Trump doesn’t need any help in taking over in Buffalo.
