Dirk Nowitzki On Mavs Sexual Misconduct Allegations:

'And here we are. We weren't competing for the playoffs.

Adam Silver indeed hating hearing. This is like a year and a half of tanking. I've been around too long. The players for the Dallas Mavericks have been openly praised from all those who have reported the scandal so far, saying that the Mavs locker room acted as a "safe haven" for numerous women who were being harassed in other areas of the work place.

And that certainly appears to be the trend in Dallas.

Starting with the 2019 draft, the three teams with the worst records will share a 14 percent chance of getting the No. 1 overall pick, lessening the incentive to lose at the end of the season.

They drafted rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr., one of the league's rising stars. The problem with Cuban's comments is that those plans aren't supposed to be said out in the open.

The Mavericks next game is Friday night in Los Angeles against the Lakers.

"The Mavericks organization takes these allegations extremely seriously", the statement says, in part.

'Players never play to lose, ' said Nowitzki, the franchise leader in almost every significant category. 'I'm embarrassed, to be honest with you, that it happened under my ownership, and it needs to be fixed'.

"I want to deal with this issue", Cuban told SI. I'll try to give them a chance to improve themselves because I think helping people improve their lives, helping people engage with people they may fear or may not understand, and helping people realize that while we all have our prejudices and bigotries ...

Multiple Mavericks and arena employees quit as a direct result of Ussery's actions, claiming that there is a system within sports to protect men who misbehave. The NBA commissioner came down hard against Cuban, fining the outspoken owner $600,000.

"It's not a situation we condone", Cuban told Sports Illustrated in a separate interview. 'I got excited talking to Dr. J and said something I shouldn't have'.

Days after a Sports Illustrated report detailed a culture "rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior" within the Mavericks' organization, the National Basketball Association announced it is establishing a confidential hotline for league and team employees to report concerns about misconduct in their workplace. Cuban played kiss and tell, instead of having the organizations back.

Cuban was never accused of harassing any employees himself by anyone the SI reporters spoke with. The NBA has said it will monitor the investigation closely.

The report said team website reporter Earl Sneed was twice accused of domestic assault while working for the Mavericks, including a guilty plea in a case that was dismissed when he met the conditions of the agreement. Cuban said "in hindsight", he would have fired Sneed and made him still go to counseling after the first incident.
