Cuban: "I Hope The Nets Suck"

Mark Cuban, one of the world's richest men and owner of the defending Dallas Mavericks, seems to be obsessed with the Big Russian. When asked before the Mavericks-Knicks game what he thought of the Nets plans for Brooklyn (which he supported as a member of the NBA Board of Governors) he told reporters the following, as tweeted by Al Iannazzone.

'I hope the stadium works, I hope they do a great job and I hope the team sucks.' said the always quotable Cuban.

Why might he feel this way about the Nets? Billionaire jealousy (Mikhail Prokhorov has about ten times the Cuban fortune)? Or it his fear that the Nets will hurt his chances of building his next championship around a new big three (Dirk Nowitzki, Deron Williams and Dwight Howard)?; or perhaps he just enjoys being a jerk.
