It doesn't sound like Donald Trump and Mark Cuban are exactly close friends. reached out to the owner of the Dallas Mavericks to ask him about Trump's potential interest in purchasing the Buffalo Bills. Cuban reportedly responded by saying, "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."

Apparently, Trump wasn't too happy with those comments, and fired back at Cuban accordingly:

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.

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.
