NBA Owner:

'Two Jets' Fueled for

Free Agency Race

6/29/2010 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In just two days, NBA teams will officially get the green light to go after free agents -- like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh -- and one NBA owner claims he's already got TWO private jets gassed up and ready to go ... just in case he needs 'em.

TMZ spoke with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban -- who tells us he doesn't think he'll have to pull any crazy stunts to get players to want to sign with the Mavs this year ... saying, "This crop of free agents is taking a much more sophisticated approach than other years. I think that helps the Mavs."

Cuban adds, "Less BS and more business."

But Cube wasn't joking about the jet-setting -- saying, "Since we can't talk to agents 'til [Thursday] it's up in the air, but I have two jets fueled and ready to go if we need to."

He's very annoying! But, I rather see him win than the Lakers! So, go get all the best players just so the Lakers won't ever go back to the Finals.

Dallas doesn't have state taxes for one. That's why California firms come here LOL. The Dallas mavericks have enough money to pay their bill. All of the other bills such as free agency, sign ups from 50th pick on the draft jumped to number 25th, is all of Mark Cubans money LOL. Can I say minority owner Ross Perot @#$% on this deal LOL. Anyways, this guy is above the norm. He's smart and has friends that are smart. What can you say. You either hate him or you love him. As for myself. I love the dude.



Keep hating or keep loving, but as for Mark he'll always be a MAVS fan LOL.
