Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has insisted that he could beat Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant 1-on-1 and is willing to make it reality.
After receiving criticism regarding his All-Star selection, Durant told NewsOK.com that “whoever want my spot can play me one-on-one for it”.
It came as Durant was selected to participate in the game despite missing numerous games through injury this season, with the likes of Damian Lillard snubbed in his place.
However, Cuban has emerged as an unlikely rival and further he is confident that he would actually beat the Thunder star.
“I can beat Dirk [Nowitzki], I can beat him,” Cuban said, according to Earl K Sneed of Mavs.com.
While this would certainly be interesting and highly entertaining to watch, Cuban’s confidence is admirable but he must surely know that this is several steps too far for him even despite his outspoken past.
Cuban already riled up Durant earlier this year when he questioned whether or not the Thunder should consider tanking this season given their poor start after both the reigning MVP and Russell Westbrook were absent with injury.
OKC are still struggling this season at 25-25 as they continue to chase down the likes of the Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Pelicans for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
