Mark Cuban's least favorite referee is the lead official for tonight's Game 3 in the Mavs-Spurs series.

Why doesn't Cuban like Danny Crawford? Well, the Mavs are 1-15 in playoff games officiated by Crawford during Cuban's ownership tenure.

Cuban has made it clear that he feels that the refs robbed the Mavs in the 2006 NBA Finals. Crawford worked a pair of tight losses during the Finals flop: Games 3 and 6, when Dwyane Wade combined to shoot 39 free throws.

It didn't help the credibility of Crawford, who will work with Dick Bavetta and Rodney Mott, when disgraced ref Tim Donaghy claimed that Crawford bragged about the Mavs' miserable record in his playoff games.
