FRISCO, Texas — Mark Cuban, Major League Soccer team owner?
Earlier on Saturday, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks was asked on reddit:
If you could own a team in any other sports league, what league would you choose?
“If you would have asked me this question 10 years ago, I would have said baseball, but things have changed,” Cuban replied
“I think the MLS has the best opportunity outside of the NBA. Their challenge is that the value of their franchsies are growing faster than their revenues, which makes it harder to invest in a franchise.
“But I think generally they are best positioned behind the NBA.”
Not surprisingly, that peaked the interest of MLS commissioner Don Garber, who earlier in the night was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame at Toyota Stadium.
“Mark should give me a call,” Garber said. “Ask him if he wants my email address.”
