After Dallas Mavericks forward Caron Butler had season-ending knee surgery, Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson said that it will be tough for the team to overcome the loss.

When asked about Jackson's comment on Tuesday, Cuban fired back and jabbed the legendary coach's romantic relationship with Jeanie Buss, daughter of Lakers owner Jerry Buss.

"I love that Jeanie Buss' boy-toy had something to say about us," Cuban told ESPNDallas. "I don't know if it was his thought or Jeanie's thought, but it's nice to know that she lets him speak in public about other teams."

When Jackson was asked about the Cuban's comment, he said it was "terrific" to hear that he was considered a "boy toy."

Buss suggested that "maybe Mark just did it to make me giggle."
