On October 8, Beijing time, according to US media reports, Dallas Mavericks boss Mark Cuban accepted an interview with reporters. He recalled how he let go of Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash back then, and claimed that he let Nash go. The biggest mistake is that Nash and Bibby are players of the same level.
Cuban said: "We gave what we thought was a great offer, but the sun jumped out and gave a better offer. I will never forget that day because he called me and said,'They gave me a better offer than Mike Bibby is even higher. You know that Bibby just got a new contract. At that time, I still felt that “Nash and Bibby have the same value.” This is the biggest mistake I have ever made. Nash is because of this hatred. For a long time."
In the 2004-05 season, Nash returned to the Suns and led the Suns to a good regular season record, and Nash also won the regular season MVP. If Cuban was able to keep Nash at that time, then perhaps the Lone Ranger might not have to wait until 2011 to get the first championship trophy in team history!
