Billionaire Mark Cuban's Inspiration? Legendarily Abusive Coach Bobby Knight
Mark Cuban -- the outspoken entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theaters, and media company HD Net -- did an interview with Business Insider in which he named his inspiration. Who is a legendary psychopath.
BI: What's the best business advice you ever got?
Mark Cuban: It came from Bobby Knight when I was in college. He said "Everyone has the will to win, but it's only those with the will to prepare that do win."
Oh, you mean like this?
Or like this?
Ah, Cuban's a charmer as well, though, having received any number of numerous fines in the NBA for being as such. The key to success, apparently, is to be a belligerent asshole. Self-evident, but duly noted nonetheless!
