Mark Cuban

Files MOST BADASS

Legal Doc EVER

6/22/2011 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban just dropped the ultimate "IN YOUR FACE" statement to a minority owner of the team ... who tried to take control away from Mark last year.

Long story short -- the minority owner, a company owned by Ross Perot Jr. -- filed legal papers in May 2010 calling Cuban a "careless and reckless" owner who was running the team into the ground.

Perot begged a judge to remove Cuban from operational control of the squad before it was too late.

Now, Cuban has responded in legal docs with the greatest statement ever ... a photo of the Mavs hoisting the NBA championship trophy.

In the docs, Cuban adds, "Under Cuban's stewardship, the Mavericks have become one of the league's most successful teams and are now NBA champions."

He adds, "Accordingly, there can be no genuine question that [Perot's] claims of mismanagement lack merit and .... should be disposed of."

Hail to the champ.

I don't know much about Cuban. Over the years, I have liked him and disliked him some of his antics. I very much enjoyed his TMZ interview yesterday. I would love to see someone who is passionate about sports buy the Dodgers, a I would support Cuban and the team if he did so. I will never attend another game as long as Frank McCourt owns the team.

Good for Mark Cuban. There is always someone out there willing to knock the king off of his throne, and this court jester, Perot JR. took it in the rump with Cuban's statement. Here's to the next Dodger owner. Cheers!!

perot just wanted money in order to offset some terrible real estate deals that went south. Cuban is by far one of the best owenrs in the entire sports industry, including european soccer. He's certainly the most enthusiastic!

Mavs > Heat. Thats all that matters. Lebron is a joke. Cuban is a genius.

Now maybe Mark Cuban can focus on the more important things .....like getting a better head-rug than the pathetic hair he has now. Million Dollar NBA Team owner with a $10 head of hair.

Pathetic.

He should also send a copy to the a-hole Trump who has said similar things about Cuban.

And Major League Baseball should get the memo, too. Then, maybe they'd change their tune and start doing backflips to get Mr. Cuban to buy a team.

Maybe if Ross Jr. pulls out some of his dad's pie charts and says "Can I finish? Can I finish?" he'll be able to change the judge's mind.

Way to crib the Dallas Observer's Unfair Park blog.
