Mark Cuban

NBA's No Place for a Lady ... Yet

12/16/2011 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

121611_tmzlive

A woman WILL coach an NBA team ... just not yet, according to Mark Cuban. The Dallas Mavericks owner joined us today, and actually thinks there will be an openly gay NBA player before a woman coaches ... and you'll never guess why.

Plus, we break details on Britney Spears' swanky Las Vegas engagement party -- and explain why marriage to Jason Trawick is going to have a huge effect on her future.

Also, KLM Airlines "social" seating -- great idea for lonely guys, but nuisance for hot chicks? And Whoopi Goldberg's chemical warfare at "The View" leads to some gassy confessions here in our newsroom.

No. Rick Perry doesn't have so much as aPrayer.
Not to mention Rick Perry is not a quick study, or smart enough to be President.
Also, Rick Perry fibs. A lot. Read Molly Ivins, who referred to him as "Gov. Goodhair."

PAT SUMMITT
1071 wins
Tennessee (1974-present)

You drop the ball on this one. If a male coach had said the same thing it would have been ,"Well he is probably right..." I do not think Harvey knows who Pat Summitt is. She is not JUST a basketball coach She is THE winningest basketball coach in the nation!!

just sayin    

I love Mike, Mike all the way, I miss when he hosted for really the same reason you slam him. He gets into it, gives opinions I like to hear, and is way more involved, much like you HARVEY.

Nurse!!    

Okay I just had to get in on the fart thing. Guys, the gas pills only soften up the bubbles to enable them to slip out with ease. So enjoy! And also, that's one of the perks of being a nurse. Got gas? Just volunteer to take care of the patient with the GI issues. Who the hell will care if you fart in their room?
