Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban — known for his explosive comments — burned up the airwaves Thursday with his response to anyone who’d question why he’d vote for disgraced Clippers owner Donald Sterling to keep the team.

“F--- ’em. I don’t care if nobody shows up to games. If I think the ethical thing to do is to vote against 29 other guys, I will,” Cuban said on SiriusXM Radio after it was reported that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer won the bidding war with a $2 billion offer.

Before NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling on April 30, Cuban raised the issue of the precedent that could be set by forcing Sterling to leave.

“I think you've got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. It’s a very, very slippery slope,” Cuban said.
