Mark Cuban wearing No. 46 in celebrity game to spite Donald Trump

Friday February 17th, 2017

Mark Cuban got clever with his choice of number for Friday’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, picking No. 46 in response to Donald Trump.

Trump tweeted that Cuban isn’t smart enough to run for president. Trump is president No. 45. The two have a long standing sort of beef. So, yeah, you get it.

Cuban, the Mavericks owner, won’t be scoring 46 points, but hey, that’s ok. Clever one.

No word on who’s wearing #47.
