Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban swears on live television following his team's 2011 NBA Finals win. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been silent for weeks. He ended that silence with a bang. And a bleep.

During a live postgame interview following the Mavericks' 105-95 Game 6 win over the Miami Heat -- a win that clinched the 2011 NBA title -- Cuban profanely praised his team's fans.

"As much as our fans are maligned, this and that," Cuban said. "Our fans just punked the sh*t out of the Miami fans. You know, literally, that's the only way you can say it."

Cuban's comment was in reference to a vocal gathering of Mavericks fans that attended Game 6 in Miami's American Airlines Arena.

Now, we all wait to see whether the FCC will fine Cuban or the television network more harshly or less harshly than the NBA has fined him for complaining about the league's officiating over the years.

Here's video of Mark Cuban's S-bomb on live television.

I was at the game when the Heat hosted the Knicks and it was the same thing. You heard more Knicks fans than Miami fans. It's really kind of sad. Before lebron showed up, the heat had the lowest attendance of any playoff team. I'm not surprised

No Fine, learn the rules before posting such s-

Simple answer to Ben, no.  Since you are not aware of the rules and actual oversight of the FCC, they have no grounds on regulating the content and speech on ESPN.  If this is from ABC that would be another question.  ESPN is a satilite based broadcast network, out of the reach of the "decency standards" at the hand of the FCC.  ESPN (owned by the same company as ABC) works on their own principals and standards that they precieve their viewers and advertisers want them to operate.  

Nice try to drudge up something to actually add, or should I say detract, from Mark Cuban's accomplishment.

Gotcha journalism blogging at its best.  Too bad you are wrong like so many others.

Just one question: is "killerbee" a real person? or just an I-bot programmed to mispell and be grammatically incorrect?

who cares if you love him or hate him, but as a fan you want him as your owner...how many owners just sit behind close doors really dont even care about the team, but just turning a small profit even if the team loses..cuban will spend his money, make his players and coach happy...and the end result is a ring for dirk partying in south beach on miami's turf..

Does it matter? He just won the NBA Finals. He's allowed now to say whatever he wants, unlike back in 06 where he did too much talking and not winning anything.

Im a Heat fan and I do believe that being humble will get you farther and thats what Cuban has been through out these finals. Im glad this happened so that the Heat learns what Cuban did: Play first, talk later.

we seriously care that someone said "shit" on TV?  Has anyone SEEN TV lately? From the heading on the article I thought he went on some 2 minute rant about what fu<del>king pu<del>y fa<del>ots the Heat and all their bandwagon bi<del>h j<del>z gargling are.  Cuban is outspoken sure, but this is nothing, and what kind of fine does it take make a billionaire even notice...?
