It's amazing how an eight-minute phone call can cloud a charmed life. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, like Martha Stewart before him, is officially in hot water with the SEC. They allege that Cuban sold 600,000 shares in the search engine Inc. in June 2004, saving him $750,000. Cuban has responded publicly and angrily on his blog that the entire imbroglio is 'a product of gross abuse of prosecutorial discretion.' The entire story has generated as much buzz as a battalion of mosquitoes. That's due to the Dancing With the Stars alumnus at the center of it all. To some, he is a hero – the only true fan/owner in existence. To others, such as sportswriter Tony Kornheiser, he's just a 'preening schmo.' But almost everyone in the basketball universe gives the flamboyant 50-year-old billionaire a measure of respect.
