Yes, you read that right! So Brian Cuban, brother of Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, had a giant drug problem, and it seems Brian Cuban has put together his own 12 step program just like his entrepreneur brother would love.

Video below but here is what is said about the coke.

“June 2006. The NBA team, the Dallas Mavericks, is going to the championship series for the very first time,” Brian Cuban said at the beginning of his speech. “My brother owns the team, so I’m a big fan. I’m going to get some pretty good seats to that game. I also had the opportunity to get a couple tickets for friends. So I do. Do you think I gave them to my friends? I didn’t. You may think that I sold them on eBay for some astronomical amount. I didn’t do that either because that would be disrespectful to my brother and the team. I took those two tickets and traded them to my drug dealer for $1,000 of cocaine.”
