It didn't take Mark Cuban long to respond to the Mavericks' 50th win, which gives them 10 straight seasons with at least 50.
"My first game as owner (the) NBA told me not to set fans' expectations too high,'' he said via Twitter. "I didn't listen. 10 x 50 later, a lot of people deserve credit.''
Cuban correctly gives a big chunk of thanks to Dirk Nowitzki, who was 3-of-16 at one point Wednesday night, but scored 19 points in the fourth quarter and overtime.
And he sees the irony of how the Mavericks have overcome things to get to this point. Little things like, oh, the '90s.
"We didn't have any winning seasons 10 years,'' he said. "So I'm proud of that. Dirk's a great player. We've been able to surround him with some great players and I've been willing to lose a load of money.''
And the Mavericks have overcome other things, like letting Steve Nash go for nothing.
"We're pretty good at replenishing,'' Cuban said. "We lost a lot of marquee players that everybody said we couldn't replace. And I don't think Dirk's in his last year by any stretch. Hopefully we can keep it going for many more years and have many more shots at it.''
