Cuban:

No Hip, No Problem!

9/24/2007 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark CubanWhile several "Dancing With the Stars" contestants are limited in one way or another (Mel B. just had a baby, Wayne Newton has been stretched to the limit for some time), it's doubtful any of them have endured what Mark Cuban has.

The outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner had his hip replaced less than seven weeks before he started practicing for "Dancing With the Stars." Ay caramba!

But it's not all bad news for Cuban -- turns out that before he was mega-rich, he gave disco lessons at sorority houses for $25 an hour -- bet the benefits were spectacular!

Hi!! I, TOO, wish Mark all the best in his dancing endeavors. I used to live in Texas and the feeling abt him was mucho mixed. You love him, you hate him and there wasn't much in-bwtween there. I DO remember seeing him in a couple of "Walker: Texas Ranger" episodes, one where he danced and one where he was "super" generous to a character on one of the episodes. He can be VERY FUNNY!!! IF you e-mail him at the Dallas Mavericks site and ask him a question, he'll most likely answer it--either on the website or privately, if you leave your e-mail address. I DON'T REMEMBER what the name of it is but HE DOES have a "give back to the veterans" website and does well with it and will also answer e-mails there as well. Hope he does well tonight--I WON'T be able to see it b-cause of NO TV!!! Take care.

Mark Cuban is an antiAmerican, anti-American troops, egocentric...the male version of Jane Fonda. I don't care if he outdances Apollo, I hope he is the first to be eliminated...he is one of the most vile and mentally unbalanced men in America. An embarressment to his sports team and his nation.

Anti-troops?????? Put the crack pipe down, grab your ears, and pull your head out of your arse. He as one of the first "celebrity/famous" people to provide assistance to wounded or killed soldiers and their families when he started the Fallen Patriot Fund in 2003.
