Report: Cuban called Martin a 'thug'

The NBA is reviewing a postgame confrontation between Mark Cuban and the mother of
Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin during which the Dallas Mavericks owner referred to Martin as a "thug" or a "punk," according to a report in The Denver Post.

Cuban told the Denver newspaper by e-mail that as he walked off the court after the Mavericks' Saturday night loss in Dallas, he saw Martin's mother, Lydia Moore, as a fan was yelling that the Nuggets were "thugs."

"That includes your son," Cuban said to Moore, according to his e-mail to The Post.

It takes a special someone to insult a guy's mother, but in Cuban's defense, he has apparently stopped front-running his short reports.

I am a Nuggets fan and have sat near Ms. Moore during several games. I would not mess with her even if I had a billionaire's security entourage. That is a fight Cuban would be smart to avoid.
