Craig Carton blasts failing Bleacher Report for Mark Cuban directed deleted Dirk Forever tweet

Failing Bleacher Report tweeted out this video of Dirk Nowitzki shooting an air ball captioned “DIRK FOREVER.”

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, the billionaire of the one lousy championship and the current 23-25 record, complained to NBA partner and B/R owner Turner Sports ( is part of Turner Sports Digital, part of the Turner Sports & Entertainment Digital Network) president David Levy.

More like ordered and bullied. In a DM titled, "Are you fucking kidding me? Delete your account." Cuban whined, "Who the fuck thinks this is remotely acceptable?"

"Mark, good seeing in NOLA, last weekend," Levy wrote back, "and I did watch the shark tank special last night.. great show.. I will follow up with my social team, but reaching millenials and having them share and discuss topics, sometimes bold tag lines are used.. around bloopers....Dirk is one of the best ever.....there is no argument there.."

"That wasn't a blooper," Cuban fired back. "This isn't a discuss with your team issue David. This is an issue where if it's not down immediately, I'll communicate with the millenials in the way I know how to."

He then ended his email: "Your choice."

They deleted the video. They kept "Dirk: Forever Clutch" instead.
