Dallas Mavericks Being Investigated For Workplace Misconduct

Recommended Posts

It looks like the Panthers opened the flood gates.

 At this meal, with ESPN crew members seated nearby, Ussery struck up an unusual conversation. As the woman recalls the exchange, Ussery claimed that he knew what she was going to do over the coming weekend. When the woman asked, confusedly, what Ussery meant, he smiled.

“You’re going to get gang-banged,” he asserted, “aren’t you?”

The employee was startled but not entirely surprised. When she first accepted her job with the Mavericks in 2010, she’d shared the news with her local Dallas women’s running group. Instead of congrats, she recalls, she received warnings. “Watch out for the president,” one friend said. “Whatever you do, don’t get trapped in an elevator with him.

“It was a real life Animal House,” says one former organization employee who left recently after spending roughly five years with the Mavs. “And I only say ‘was’ because I’m not there anymore. I’m sure it’s still going on.”

Yeah, that could be pretty bad for Cuban, even if he's not guilty of anything himself.

Ugh. Only bright note in there is that at least the players acted like professionals and adults.

Which also, sadly, hardly surprises me. In my coaching life, the worst, most puerile, most offensive behavior I've seen has come from the athletic department lifers. There's plenty of good eggs, but also a lot of overgrown fratboys who never wanted to leave the frathouse - and, in a way, never did.

Players can obviously be just as bad, but it's easier to shut that sh*t down and train them out of bad habits and thinking. The natural seniority system helps a lot: When the oldest and most mature players get to set an example, and the youngest and (theoretically) most immature are just trying to belong, it's easier to stamp out stupidity.

SI is a terrible organization and will likely go out of business relatively soon.

Teams across all professional sports better be getting their poo together right about now because you best believe this type of poo is not isolated to the Panthers and Mavs.

The only way I could see this as a bad reflection on SI is if this sort of thing is also going on in their offices.

Gotta say, the main guy in this story sounds even worse than Jerry Richardson. And the domestic abuser, yeah...
