Mark Cuban sends message to President Trump with No. 46 jersey

22 February, 2017

The Mavericks owner sported a No. 46 jersey in New Orleans on Friday during the NBA All-Star celebrity game in response to Trump's recent tweet that Cuban is "not smart enough to run for president". So given the opportunity to tweak the leader of the free world during the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, he did not pass it up.

"I'm willing to bet that these companies building new plants. this will lead to fewer people being employed", Cuban told CNBC, adding that "people aren't going to have jobs".

Speaking to ESPN, Cuban first said that 46 was his favorite number 23 times two. There has been talk of the Democratic Party recruiting Cuban to run opposite Trump in 2020.

When asked by ESPN before the game about his jersey selection, Cuban made no mention of Trump, instead saying tongue-in-cheek, "I couldn't get 23".

In the mountains, between 1 and 2 feet of snow are possible above 8,000 feet and between 6 and 12 inches above 6,000 feet, the NWS said.

"You've got to have fun with it". No one on the West celebrity squad wore No. 23, however. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.He's not smart enough to run for president!

Only later did Cuban admit that there was more to his uniform number choice than just doubling Michael Jordan's number. Trump tweeted on February 12 that Cuban, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, is "not smart enough to run for president".

That had come after some critical remarks of Trump by Cuban, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter during the presidential campaign. Cuban, who loves Twitter as much as Trump, tweeted often during the election about his disdain for Donald Trump and pleaded with anyone reading his tweets not to vote for him.

Do you think Cuban's choice of jersey number was a direct jab at Trump?
