As it always is with Mark Cuban, there is a little bit of truth here, there’s a bit of bluster and there’s a righteous, knowing dig.
Just in time for the 2015 playoffs, with Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks set to take on the James Harden-led Houston Rockets, Cuban was asked to give his personal scouting report on Harden and his teammates by Grantland’s Kirk Goldsberry:
“[The biggest difference is] practice time. There’s no more predictable team than the Rockets. You know exactly what they’re gonna do,” he says. “But James Harden is so good. That’s what analytics have begot. Right? Predictability. If you know what the percentages are, in the playoffs, you have time to counter them. Whether you’re good enough to do it is another question.
