Mark Cuban Will Now Be Known As Narc Cuban

During Monday night’s snooze of a Game 7 Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics, Mark Cuban decided to hop on Twitter and bizarrely ask fans about illegal streaming.

“Got a personal question for everyone watching heats vs celtics right now. Who is watching on a pirated stream? I’m curious how prevalent it is,” the Dallas Mavericks and Shark Tank entrepreneur asked his over 8.8 million Twitter followers.

Sure, Mark.

I always hated when my dad would say “I was born at night, but not last night,” but now I know EXACTLY what he meant.

Two immediate red flags went up when people read Cuban’s tweet. “Got a personal question…” followed by “I’m curious…” is an immediate antenna-raising alert, especially when one is partaking in ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES like pirated streams.

You can’t fool me, Narc Cuban.

Honestly, Mark Cuban’s tweet was more entertaining last night than the game itself, which ended in the Miami Heat absolutely wrecking the Celtics 103-84.

The responses went exactly how you’d expect.

Then you had this genius who alerted the feds that he illegally streams pretty much… everything. Good luck with those legal bills, buddy.

Or this Mavs fan who asked why the team is still employing center Dwight Powell despite averaging just 6.7 pts per game and getting $33 million guranteed.


I have to admit I even got involved in the Cuban hazing last night by asking the serious questions… whatever happened to one of Cuban’s first Shark Tank acquisitions of the guy who draws cats for people?!

Hell, 535 likes on it so that people really want to know what happened to the cat guy. (After looking into it during the third quarter last night, I found out he’s booked out for a full YEAR in advance to draw people… a cat.)


Some fans however did try to be serious and were begging Cuban to do something about the ongoing Ballys Sports debacle currently going on.

It’s unclear what exactly Cuban’s intentions were when he asked about illegal streaming. I can say that the amount of people I know or see on socials pirating games and events seems to have risen tremendously in recent years – especially as cord cutting takes precedent. However, I mostly see it with NFL games as well as UFC or WWE events.

But as we’ve seen on Shark Tank, Cuban is always calculating something. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s announced as some head of a streaming media enterprise in the coming months.

Either that, or being given a medal by the FBI.
