Mark Cuban

Trump Can't Afford Buffalo Bills Alone

Donald Fires Back HARD

4/5/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0404_mark_cuban_donald_trump_bills_gettyMark Cuban tells TMZ Sports he does NOT believe Donald Trump can afford to purchase the Buffalo Bills all by himself ... a statement that Trump says is DEAD WRONG. 

Trump also says Cuban's a "lightweight whose net worth is a fraction of mine" ... and claims he has first-hand knowledge that Mark sucks at golf.

Here's how it all began ... we reached out to Mark (who owns the NBA's Dallas Mavericks) to get his thoughts about Trump's interest in buying the Bills. 

His response: "He cant afford them by himself. So it would be interesting to see what group he put together to buy them. It would make things interesting."

Donald, to put it lightly, disagreed ... and fired back hard at the insinuation his bank account couldn't handle the purchase. 

"Mark Cuban is a lightweight whose net worth is a fraction of mine. He was rejected by baseball and probably plenty of others! By the way, I watched him play golf and he is a total non-athlete – zero clubhead speed. He lives vicariously through his basketball players."

Trump added, "By the way, the Dallas Mavericks deal is syndicated and his partners have been fighting him over poor management. While the Bills deal would be easily handled by me, if I chose to do it, almost all sports deals are syndicated." 

Sounds like fightin' words to us.

WHY WOULD CUBAN SAY THAT? WHY WOULD TRUMP RESPOND? WHY ARE TWO RICH PEOPLE ARGUING ABOUT WHO CAN AND CANT AFFORD A PRO TEAM? WHY IS IT THAT HUMANS FIND ANYTHING TO FIGHT ABOUT? WHY DO PEOPLE HATE PEOPLE THEY DONT EVEN KNOW AND WHY DO PEOPLE HATE PEOPLE THEY KNOW ISNT IT A WASTE OF TIME TO HATE PEOPLE? WHY IS IT THAT THE WORLD HAS BECOME SO IMAGE AWARE AND CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE CAN AFFORD AND CANT? WHY IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO BE A RICH PERSON AND NOT A GOOD PERSON? WHY ISNT IT 1ST IMPORTANT TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND 2ND A RICH PERSON? IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND BE RICH, LEGALLY OR WITHOUT HURTING PEOPLE ON YOUR WAY UP(ASIDE FROM LOTTERY WINNERS< IM SPEAKING OF PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE WAY UP TO RICHES, NO DISRESPECT TO LOTTERY WINNERS, MONEY IS MONEY)!!!! WHY COMMENT IN A NEGATIVE WAY PERIOD. WHY RESPOND TO NEGATIVITY PERIOD> WHY NOT JUST SAY <"I HOPE TRUMP GETS THE TEAM, IT WILL BE GOOD FOR SPORTS, TRUMPS A GREAT BUSINESSMAN"! I MEAN, TRUMP HAS DONE ALOT OF GOOD! WHY NOT SAY,"I RESPECT MARK CUBANS OPINION REGARDING MY WEALTH OR LACK THEREOF AND THATS FINE BUT, I LOVE HIM AND ALL PEOPLE. MY FINANCES DONT DEFINE ME NOR MAKE ME A BETTER MAN, MY CHARACTER DOES, IT DOESNT BOTHER ME THAT HE THINKS I CANT AFFORD THE DEAL ALONE, IT WOULD ONLY BOTHER ME IF GOD FELT I WASNT DOING RIGHT AS A HUMAN IN BEING A GOOD STEWARD OVER ALL IVE BEEN GIVEN MAINLY A GOOD HEART AND LOVE AND KINDNESS". SOMETIMES, ITS BEST TO RESPOND WITH LOVE, I MEAN, WHATS HARDER TO RESPOND TO, HATE OR LOVE?LGNM

Trump is mortgaged to the hilt, he's bankrupted more companies than I can count, and the owner of a professional sports team can't own and part of a casino.

Cuban may be goading Trump along, but Trump has about as much chance of owning the Bills as any of us do.

Rethink that Mark. Donald Trump can simply declare his third, maybe fourth bankruptcy and then he will be able to buy anything he wants to.

Donald Trump is always full of BS when it comes to his fortune, that is why he is a Reality TV Host. Donald Trumps Wealth is all Assets and there he is Richer then Mark Cuban. Mark Cuban is Wealthier then Donald because his wealth is more Liquid Assets then Assets. Mark would be able to afford to buy the Bills before Donald Trump. Besides would The NFL want Donald who sued them for a Billion Dollars and only one $1 in Punitive and Compensatory Damages?

Donald Trump is going to buy the Buffalo Bills like he is going to Run for President of the United States or Governor of New York. Trump is All talk that is just full of BS that the only people that believe him are Mike Walters and Harvey Levin of TMZ.
