8. Goodbye, Steve Nash (2004)

Angry fans wanted answers when Steve Nash departed for the desert. After the All-Star guard signed with Phoenix in free agency, Cuban cranked out a 4,400-word blog post explaining "all the logical, illogical, emotional and financial scenarios" the Mavs explored before declining to match the Suns' offer. After Nash won two MVP awards, it looked like Cuban's logic was flawed. (Glenn James /NBAE/Getty Images)
