Mark Cuban Ethers Ross Perot, Jr.

In 2009, Ross Perot, Jr.—who sold his stake in the Dallas Mavericks to Mark Cuban in 2000 but still retains five percent ownership over the team—and his company Hillwood Investment Properties filed a lawsuit against Cuban, saying Cubes had made a bunch of "questionable business, financial and personnel decisions" with the Mavs and had been "careless and reckless" in running the franchise. So, now that the Mavs won the NBA title? The Mavs owner is getting payback—and having a little bit fun at Perot, Jr.'s expense.

Cubes filed a legal response to Perot, Jr. on Wednesday that included eight mentions of the "World Champion Dallas Mavericks," a large color photo of the Mavs celebrating their championship victory, and the following statement: "Under Hillwood's ownership, the team was deemed the 'worst franchise' in all of professional sports. Under Cuban's stewardship the Mavericks have become one of the league's most successful and are now NBA champions. Accordingly, there can be no genuine question that Hillwood's claims of mismanagement lack merit and Hillwood's claims should be disposed of on summary judgment."

LMAO. This guy! [via ESPN Dallas]
