The NBA wants Mark Cuban to STFU. The other night, Cubes appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and explained that the league has essentially banned him from talking about Kobe Bryant after what he said about him a few weeks ago.

So, please, please, please stop asking him about Kobe—unless, of course, you want to ante up and help him pay the fine.
