DATE: 2006
COMPLEX SAYS: The Mavericks owner's public criticism of the league and its referees had been documented for years but reached a boiling point after Game 5 of the 2006 NBA Finals. After the Mavs loss, Cuban reportedly turned to Stern and league officials yelling "Fuck you! Fuck you! Your league is rigged!" A report which Cuban later denied. However, that didn't stop Stern from slapping Cuban with a $250,000 fine. Since becoming an owner in 2000, Cuban has been fined for over $1.75 million. *Bumps Stern's soundtrack*
