Mark Cuban has never been one to keep his mouth shut about something he disagrees with. So now that the NBA has signed a sponsorship deal with a product Cuban previously called a scam, there was only ever one outcome.

As reported by ESPN Dallas, Cuban took to YouTube last week with a message for the NBA and its sponsor Power Balance bracelets - one of a few companies that make similar rubber bracelets that claim to improve athletes' performance. He didn't mince words...or actions:

Cuban had previously been pitched an idea similar to Power Balance bracelets on "Shark Tank," an ABC reality show for aspiring entrepreneurs for which Cuban is a judge. Cuban dismissed the idea as a scam then, as well. NBA team branded Power Balance bracelets currently sell for $32.99 at the NBA store.
