Mark Cuban, money mogul on Shark Tank and recent kidney stone conqueror, bared it all on Christmas Eve over Reddit. The Mavericks owner decided that his Christmas presents to his fans would be to answer any question, big or small! What did he talk about? What did he have to say about Christmas? Read below to find out after the jump!
Mark Cuban took us all through his battle with a kidney stone a few weeks ago, and came out no worse for wear. However, he did decide to have an open question session with fans via Reddit. Fans asked him questions from a myriad of subjects. Here are just a few:
Q: On Shark Tank, how many of the deals get modified or cancelled after the cameras stop rolling? Also, have you ever decided to make a deal with someone after the cameras stop?
Cuban: we get the chance to do due diligence after the show. As a result you uncover things that were not brought up in the show , so its not unusual for a deal to fall through in the DD phase. I have had things like people who never paid their taxes, people who lied on the show, people who didnt think that if they spent money on their personal credit cards it should be considered an expense., you name it.
There is so much pressure on the entrepeneur during the show that sometimes they say what they think we want to hear rather than the truth. The DD helps us seperate the two.
Q: Hey Mark, how close did you come to buying the Cubs?
Cuban: not close at all. When I couldnt get the owner of the Cubs to sit in a room with me that pretty much told me it wasnt going to happen. I never made a final formal bid.
Q: How’s your relationship with Skip Bayless?
Cuban: who ?
Q: I hate to be so straight forward, but what does a billionaire buy his kids for Christmas?
Cuban: the same junk that everyone else buys.
And my personal favorite:
Q: Have you ever “made it rain”?
Cuban: no. thats dumb sh*t that people with real money dont do.
Cuban answered questions for quite awhile, and the fans were thankful for it! It’s always nice when celebrities offer to interact directly with fans. What do you think of his answers?
