"Cuban has also expressed interest in owning a Major League Baseball team, such as the Pittsburgh Pirates or the Chicago Cubs. It was announced in April 2007 that the Cubs would go on sale once the Chicago Tribune's sale to Sam Zell is finalized, but Cuban refused to speculate on purchasing the club when it was not officially on the market. On July 12, 2007, Cuban sent in an application to MLB to purchase the Chicago Cubs, which along with Wrigley Field and the Cubs Television Contract could go as high as $1 billion. On October 8, 2007, he said he would likely bid on the team, calling it "an opportunity [he] couldn't let slip by" and also reiterated his interest in the team on The Jimmy Kimmel Show on November 3, 2007. In July 2008, he submitted an initial bid of $1.3 Billion to buy the Cubs and was invited to participate in a second round of bidding along with several other potential ownership groups. Cuban was not selected to participate in the final bidding process in January 2009."

Top O' the World, Ma!
(Final Top 10 rankings, including offseason moves)
1) L.A. Lakers: Kobe keeps his friends close and his perceived enemies closer. (Please note, again: these are the actual rankings of the teams, not offseason grades. Rankings. Not grades.)
2) Boston: Von Wafer is going to help the Celtics next season.
3) Orlando: Gave Otis Smith, Stan Van Gundy and head exec Alex Martins new titles -- and, presumably, raises -- keeping the Magic's braintrust together.
4) Miami: Eddie House? Sure, why not?
5) Dallas: Mark Cuban reportedly bidding on the Rangers after dallying with the Cubs the last couple of years; he's always said that baseball is his true love.
6) San Antonio: Gave swingman Gary Neal, who starred on the Spurs' summer league team, a three-year deal.
7) Oklahoma City: A July poll in The Oklahoman gave Kevin Durant the nod as the most popular athlete in the state, ahead of Sam Bradford, the University of Oklahoma quarterback who was the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft by the St. Louis Rams.
8) Atlanta: Good to see the Hawks add Kenny Gattison to their staff as an assistant. Gattison was on Byron Scott's staff in New Orleans before being unceremoniously dumped before the start of last season.
9) Utah: One never wants to make assumptions for good or ill about anyone without knowing them well, but Greg Miller seems like the kind of owner that every small-market team dreams of having.
10) Phoenix: Suns release Taylor Griffin, Blake's older brother, after one season.
