Mark Cuban Wants Michael Finley?????

Just when I think Mark Cuban can't go any lower he ends up surprising me, and all of us. According to the Fort Worth based newspaper, the Star-Telegram, he said that he wants Michael Finley to consider coming back to the Dallas Mavericks after the 2007 expires. How ridiculous is this? Michael Finley, the backbone for the Mavs for the past decade, was basically stabbed in the back and was told to leave even though he would still be the highest paid Mav being that they still owe him around $18 million (more than good ol' dirk) for 2007. Good business decision Cubes.

This is Yahoo "NBA Rumors" take:

After all that's transpired between the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs guard Michael Finley – the Mavs releasing him after nine seasons to avoid paying a massive, self-induced salary-cap penalty, to Jason Terry's infamous punch to Finley's groin and Mavs owner Mark Cuban's reactionary endorsement to boo Finley – Cuban said he'd like Finley to consider a fresh start up north.
"I would hope that after his contract is over in San Antone, he would consider the Mavs as an option," Cuban said Monday. "I don't know that he would, but our entire organization has that much respect for him."
Finley has one season left on his deal, a player option, which calls for $18.6 million in Mavs money and $3.1 million from the Spurs.

Here are some interesting responses to this:

1. Oh now you want him. Well guess what? He's gonna get a Championship here in SA and he's goin to retire a champion here in SA. He deserves to retire from a classy organization, nothing less, and you Mr. Cuban are considerably less than that. The Mavs would have no class, if AJ weren't the head coach. Thanks but no thanks, Fin is here to stay...and win!

2. Mark Cuban has negated all of Avery Johnson's hard work, image-boosting, and character-building. Cuban has made would-be supporters into enemies, that's why everyone was going for Miami last year in the finals. I have heard over and over from Dallas fans that the Spurs "got the Mavs' trash" with Finley, and that he was "worthless." He has been put into a positive environment where he can excel as a player with San Antonio. I hope Finley retires with San Antonio.

This is pretty funny considering Avery is well known as one of the biggest hot-headed coaches ever to work for Dallas, the Mavs got their ring with the whole nation pulling for the as they were the epitome of class, AND Finley helped them out with pitching to Deron Williams. So...there's that...
