A huge giveaway, indeed. What’s curious, among other things, is that Cuban seems to be getting the credit for it. He didn’t buy the tickets, did he? American Airlines did.
Also, Cuban and Garton both said the tickets were for “every Mavs fan in the building.” What if you’re not a fan of the Mavs? What if you had a cousin on the Clippers and wouldn’t mind seeing them win? What if you knew Quinton Ross when he played at SMU and wanted to see him do well? Can you still get a free ticket to St. Louis?
