Dallas Owner Mark Cuban Tried To Recruit LeBron Via Text

Yeah, that's the way to talk down to his level. Text him! 

Here's the story from NBA.com.
When LeBron James was the coveted free agent last summer, he got a few text messages from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban before making his decision to go to Miami.

Before the Heat played in Dallas for the only time this season, James described Cuban as "a very sly guy" Saturday night.

"He wants to win, he wants best for his team," said James, who along with Dallas-born Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami.

Cuban said his texts to James and the player's business manager Maverick Carter had a simple message.

"When he was making his decision, what I told him, and I told Maverick, was that no team had ever blown up a team of all their core, then added a couple of free agents and won," Cuban said. "It's always taken someone to come into a good team to make it better and put them over the top. That's what I told him."

Sure he's sly. That's why we like him.
