Mark Cuban: Mikhail Prokhorov Is A 'P*ssy'

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban insulted New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov before Thursday night's game, according to The Last Angry Fan.

"He's a pussy," Cuban reportedly said when asked about the Russian owner. "(Prokhorov) doesn't come to games. Who the hell knows?"

Cuban also talked about Nets coach Avery Johnson and how the expectations of him are different from when he was the Mavericks coach.

"When (Johnson) was with us, the expectation was to win a championship," Cuban explained. "I don't think that's the situation right now with the Nets. I think he recognizes that his job is progress more than rings right now."

The Mavericks beat the Nets 102-89.
