Why Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Shouldn’t ‘Do Dancing With The Stars’

First, there was his shift at Dairy Queen … Then there was his reality show mirrored after Donald Trump’s ‘The Apprentice’ … Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas’ Mavericks, is the next NBA star to make an appearance on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ …

CNNSI reports on the latest NBA personality to join ABC’s Dancing With The Stars:

Following in the illustrious footsteps of athletes Apolo Ohno, Clyde Drexler and Laila Ali, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will become the next cast member of Dancing With the Stars, a source told SI.com.

Cuban is the latest celebrity to join the wildly popular ABC reality show, based on the British BBC series Strictly Come Dancing. The new series will also reportedly feature former 90210 star Jennie Garth, former Spice Girl Melanie Brown and singer Wayne Newton.

The show features 10 couples competing in ballroom dancing in an elimination format. A celebrity is paired with a professional dancer, and their performances are live each week. Viewers and judges vote off one couple each week.The seventh series of Dancing With the Stars airs September 24.

My Quick Take: Has Cuban seen this?

I can just see Dallas’ owner complaining to the head of ABC about the judges having a bias against him and his partner.
