Mark Cuban Tries To Get Under Trump's Skin With No. 46 NBA All-Star Jersey

Marc Cuban wears no. 46 jersey during NBA game in apparent nod to Trump feud

Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, is trying to get under President Trump's skin again.

The site also points out that perhaps the broadcast team didn't push Cuban because of they learned their lesson previous year at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game when Arcade Fire lead singer Win Butler made a political statement.

Mark Cuban has been a very vocal critic of President Trump.


Initially, Mark Cuban explained his number choice as being a shout out to Michael Jordan.

Speaking to ESPN, Cuban first said that 46 was his favorite number 23 times two.

Cuban had hinted about his uniform number earlier Friday, ESPN reported.

Trump, the 45th president of the United States, has been waged in a war with Cuban over Twitter.

He later said with a smile that the number choice was "to tweak the s-- out of everybody".

Trump, the 45th President of the United States, tweeted on February 12: "I know Mark Cuban well".

Cuban finished the game with no points, going 0-for-3 from the floor, and one rebound in 11 minutes as the West fell 90-57.

"You've got to have fun with it".

Trump unleashed a series of tweets targeting Cuban last Sunday morning, writing, "I know Mark Cuban well". He backed me big-time, but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.

Cuban campaigned heavily with Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election and often criticized Trump's policy positions and lack of transparency.

Mark Cuban wanted to send President Donald Trump a message, and found a hilarious way to do so.

For his part, Cuban played down the significance of his jersey number.
