Mavs owner Cuban admits he was wrong about Rockets
Before the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets played in their opening-round matchup of this season’s playoffs, Mavs owner Mark Cuban said Houston was, besides James Harden, "not a very good team."
Well, the Rockets proceeded to beat the Mavericks in five games.
Then on Sunday, Houston advanced to the Western Conference Finals after beating the Los Angeles Clippers 113-100 in Game 7. The Rockets will face the West’s No. 1 seed in the Golden State Warriors starting Tuesday.
Many doubted the Rockets would advance, especially after falling into a 3-1 series hole to the Clippers.
After the game, Cuban sent out a congratulatory tweet to the Rockets and GM Daryl Morey and admitted *gulp* he was wrong.
Congrats to the Rockets. Gotta admit I was wrong. A lot.of guys stepped up. Congrats @dmorey

Morey and the Rockets should enjoy the apology. I have a feeling Cuban admitting he was wrong doesn’t happen that much.
@mcuban thank you Mark, as you know we have a long way to go because you have done it
