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.

What were Perot Jr.'s issues with Cuban? To be fair, maybe we should see what they were before automatically taking Cuban's side. I'm no fan of either, by the way.

The only thing that Mark has brought to the Mavs is money. Oh and a bunch of ticky tack fouls for the Mavs several years because he couldn't manage to keep his pie hole shut. I'm a long time Mavs fan in and out of season and am SO glad for their time as Champions but share a strong dislike of Mark like so many Dallas residents. He's new money and it shows. No class.

Perots gave us 8 years of Slick Willie, *******s in the Oval Office and massive declines in our culture. Enough of the little man with a bad haircut.

During his father's presidential bid, I never heard Junior once refer to his father as 'dad'. His son called him "H. Ross Perot". My kids call me dad. See what too much money will do to ya?

I hope Mark Cuban buys our Dodgers. It has been nothing but drama, drama, drama out here with the McCourts, and the Dodgers have become a dump of a team.

Perot Jr is a tool.

I attended the first game the Mavs played in 1980 against The Iceman and San Antonio. This victory was so sweet!

Mark Cuban is not the easiest person to like if you're not a peer. (And his wife probably has her own life as he doesn't seem much of a husband) but peer-to-peer, in business, he's good.

I just wouldn't give you two cents for his family life. But since we really don't value family life, then by our standards, he's a total success.
