Transcript for Darren Rovell's Twitter Faceoff with Mark Cuban
And you're here -- react to it because obviously you know this -- pretty well. I had a little Twitter battle with him -- We actually at the -- relation -- -- mark human spirit obviously bought the Dallas Mavericks in 2000. But when he called Eddie Rush and -- officials -- he said he couldn't manage a dairy queen. I was the one who asked Mark Cuban if he could manage a dairy queen. Which led to Mark Cuban going to dairy queen and managing one offered a blizzard yet so yes so -- this is what I love about mark not only does he. Do what he does and when he he sees problem he looks for -- opportunity. Like cyber -- But he also goes -- -- so on Twitter. He had said that the Milwaukee Bucks at 550 million dollars sold last week that two hedge fund guys was a bargain. And so -- kind of sub between him. You know what that means sky it's kind of like you're not tweeting act what you're like you're you're kind of mentioning it -- -- he said. I have not found one sports anchor who is said this is a bargain. To which mark then responded back to me. And basically say do you think that bankers know more tonight. And you do you. I think -- some of the ones that I've I've talked who have done fifty or sixty -- deals they should know as much. And he he then pointed out look at LA Dodgers deal. The TV deal that you -- and -- bought for two point 15 billion. So was -- he goes back and -- this is what's really agree about -- -- mean he he's willing to getting it. He he said he would only be himself he would be someone else -- he loves doing when he isn't. 100% himself -- even about privacy and I just have to give him props for the fact that. Our executive producer real -- sandy -- had his kids here that day his two boys. And they had an idea they pitched it to mark and not only did mark listen to the idea but he even gave them advice so some people you know maybe they would give. The listen to the kids pitching their idea but very few would actually take -- time to advise them and give the really good business yet and -- that gets bigger and that's his. Passion that's that's Mark Cuban and loving what he does and also knowing it the more effort he puts into it. The more that -- kids are gonna remember it. And I guarantee you if kids -- -- remember about experience. What surprised you the most about the interview what was the response that caught your attention. The 65 games thing because I always contend there should be fewer games. I understand that he wants more volume. But it. I don't know I think attention spans I think that you know the key is it's not the people that show up 99.9. Percent of people watching -- game on TV. To the TV networks. You know -- they are all seeking more inventories I think it's it's less about that people enjoy them and they show up. And more about competing TV networks who need more inventory and that's the reason I feel why. They can't go from 82 to six. When it comes to making money though. How much money they make up of the TV -- verses that ticket sales and everything that goes a lot with that including all the merchandise well what what's happening is a couple things that mark mark. Has been the number one advocate of the bad deal that he -- he he hates the deal he gets with the NBA which is kind of this socialistic deal that all teams split the merchandise sales equally. Only if -- number one you don't get it over the benefits and then right exactly. The only thing you reap benefits of his only your teen store in the in the in the arena that's the only. PT -- but I spoken -- mark about. Tickets being in declining. Piece of the their revenues and that TV is so big now in the -- coming up on a new TV -- next year. That TV is so big that tickets mean less and less and this unity. You kind of sold out the TV but. It's if it's a good deal. Which it very interestingly. Is part of his thesis on why he's investing in access TV because basically access is all about live -- -- at Coachella playing. You know for multiple hours on -- so that you could be in a place without Coachella happening next to you and you could be participating in the experience if you have access and his TV his TV. -- -- I remember in 2004. At the end VA tech summit which is the all star game. He -- in a fight with David Hill who's at fox sports and David Hill said 3-D TV is next. And mark said HDTV is next hand three he's gonna go bust and that's another bet -- Mark Cuban was right. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- This is really fascinating and mean long one of the first by the -- quick strike pointed out Yahoo! are okay act pointed out before. Everyone was on it okay so let me tell you about the lines. And I I just noticed -- I noticed it through that a bargain outline just kind anecdotally so forty ounce box of lines okay. That months ago would cost twenty dollars now but the 120 dollars you are in a bad situation in that. You have. More like everyone wants lines is more line -- and and this is the crazy -- 97%. Lines that we had in the US. Are from Mexico so -- and. And -- and you did my understanding is some of the farmers and their -- of multiple reasons for this but you have a shortage because the weather track. We also have the farmers. In some places where lives are really hot they got together -- they. -- -- -- -- -- But that's the thing when you're 97%. Of one product in one place I mean the -- and the problem is that there was a line business in California but they just couldn't match the prices so. The prices were low that cause it to go out of California and now there are so high I mean it's you know I mean this is. Here's the prices going up there are you going to be able to get your hands -- -- -- There is concern about cinco -- mile there is concern that you -- -- think that there. There is concern that should be trending two record the DC a serious -- -- if you have to put women in your Margarita that's just that's just not right. Go -- there there is a traditionally called true lemon in truth line which I enjoy it's like a line salt and online and you put it in your drink. Sponsored there's not -- that's fine YE IE I truly enjoy it and not a paid endorsers. It takes up what do you think of the Boston Marathon yesterday while men who really. And that the -- was the winning is just cool and and the business story in him being thirty years old. Him wearing Skechers because ninety really want to know when in the industry really wanted him and to see the stock go up a little bit yesterday you kind of wonder. Are people gonna go because running is a huge category Skechers really hasn't benefited from it so you wonder if if -- give them a pop. Brooks got so big into that category shifted their entire business model. From all that protects sneakers into specifically running -- yet I performance yet and I'm -- -- we're running market is is the fastest growing market. It's -- it's ahead of these deaths -- market in the US and so CA I mean -- had that that issue with the FTC and I think his of the opportunity for them. Well what we love having you on -- -- of helping you so much for coming and you gotta keep us posted on those lines I will you'll be tweeting about it I don't care about that's right. Larry thanks so much Daryn and they so much to Mark Cuban who joined us here on real -- is.
