Outspoken owner of the Dallas Mavericks (h/t Shark Tank) and major celebrity critic of President Donald Trump, Mark Cuban took another not-so-subtle jab at the current president.
Playing in Friday’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Cuban will wear the No. 46 on his jersey, which an anonymous source told ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk signifies a direct reference to Trump saying Cuban isn’t “smart enough” to run for president. Trump is the 45th Commander In Chief, and the 46 means Cuban’s looking ahead to the next president. Cuban has been commenting more in the political arena, and some even wonder if he will run in four years.
Source says Mark Cuban to wear 46 in Celebrity Game in response to President Trump tweeting he’s “not smart enough to run for president!”

Either way, this feud between very rich men and their egos will continue.
Expect a tweet from the President any moment now.
UPDATE: After the game, Cuban gave ESPN his official response to wearing the jersey.
“It was just to fuck with everybody, because that is what I do,” he said. “You’ve got to have fun with it. You can’t take it too seriously. So, we’ll see.”
