MAVERICKS OWNER Mark Cuban - no stranger to controversy - said during a radio interview Friday that the Lakers could reduce their salary-cap tax by releasing Kobe Bryant under the amnesty provision.
Not surprisingly, the Lakers were ticked off by that remark.
On Sunday, before the Mavs hosted the Lakers, Cuban reminded everyone that he had said he was speaking "hypothetically."
Bryant dropped 38 points to lead the Lakers to a 103-99 win, and then tweeted, "Amnesty THAT."
To his credit, Cuban took retort rather well. "Nice to know there is a least one team and their players, outside of the Mavs, that listen to everything I say," he tweeted.
