NBA chief backs Cuban bid for Cubs: report
I'm not totally sure why Stern's support is news here. Still I would like to admire the passion Cuban could bring to the Cubs and Major League Baseball. Besides I should mention that his fellow NBA owner, Jerry Reinsdorf (who not only owns the NBA's Chicago Bulls but also MLB's Chicago White Sox), is not said to be a fan of his. It should be noted that a sale of the Cubs must meet the approval of the owners of 23 out of 30 MLB clubs and Cuban's level of support is said to be unknown at this point.
