The Dallas Mavericks are definitely the dark horses of this year’s NBA championship run. Led by Luka Doncic, the Mavs knocked out the Phoenix Suns and the Utah Jazz and are currently in the Western Conference Finals. While the players deserve most of the credit, Billionaire owner Mark Cuban deserves a lot of credit as well.

His passion for the team and great business decisions have led the Mavs to where they are currently. Interestingly enough, he is not afraid to put up his thoughts on social media.

Billionaire owner roasts rapper who took shots at Luka Doncic

While Luka Doncic and the Suns faced each other on the court for game 4 of their playoffs matchup, Lil Wayne decided to have some fun. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, “Luka a ho.” This reaction by the rapper came after Luka torched the Suns with 26 points, 7 rebounds, and 11 assists.

He clapped back at Wayne saying, “It’s a shit show, put you front row.” For the uninitiated, these words are taken from the song “Uproar.” And guess what? It is Lil Wayne’s song!

Taking the disrespect to the next level, Cuban posted the tweet with an image of Wayne sitting courtside for Game 7 of the Suns vs Mavs matchup.

Luka Doncic once again put up a show as he led the Mavs to a historic win over Chris Paul and Devin Booker. He posted 35 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists in the blowout 123-90 win over the Suns.
