Millennials Moving to Dallas

Mark Cuban loves Dallas, especially when it comes to tech.

Entrepreneur, investor and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban wants millennials to move to Dallas – and he’s not being shy about touting the reasons why his adopted hometown is the best in the country for the millennial workforce.

In a recently released video, Cuban highlights what makes Dallas the ideal place for passionate entrepreneurs who want to impact the future, including a friendly business climate and high quality of life.

“If you’re young and you’re getting ready to start a business, no matter where you live in the world, I’d say, ‘Come to Dallas,’ because it’s friction-free, it’s really quick, simple and easy to start a company,” Cuban says. “There’s just a different work ethic here. …Every single day, there’s incredible entrepreneurs looking to invent the future.”

Cuban’s opinion of the region is reinforced by the area’s numerous accolades:  Dallas consistently ranks as one of the top places for job growth and millennial relocation in the country, and Texas has been named one of the top states for small businesses, with Dallas receiving an “A+” grade.

“Mark’s enthusiasm for Dallas reflects the strength of our city and the extensive opportunities that are available to our residents,” said Dale Petroskey, President and CEO of the Dallas Regional Chamber. “We can’t wait to show people around the country what we’ve known for a long time: Dallas offers the best career opportunities in one of the most diverse, dynamic and affordable markets in the United States. There’s simply no better place and no better time to be here.”

This spring, the Dallas Regional Chamber (DRC) launched its integrated Talent Attraction campaign, Say Yes to Dallas. The campaign has since spread awareness of the region via social media, interviews, and now through one of the area’s most influential leaders, Mark Cuban.

The video can be viewed on the Say Yes to Dallas website, which in accordance with the video has launched a new jobs portal that highlights various job openings available in the area to potential employees.

Here is the video:

Have the Dallas Mavericks New Cheerleading Unis Gone Too Far?

Surpringly, Mav's over Mark Cuban has been pretty quiet about this.

and in action...

The inspiration for these uniforms..  I'd have to say Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.

Many times, these dancers and cheerleaders make public appearances at elementary schools and charity events.  I hope they have a backup, or "throwback" uni they can break out.

Steve Garvey Leads Group to Buy Dodgers

One of the most popular players in Dodgers history, Steve Garvey said Friday that he has teamed with billionaire business magnate Ron Burkle in an investment group that would like to buy the team.

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig seized control of the Dodgers this week, dramatically increasing the chances the team eventually would be sold. In that event, Garvey said, he believes his baseball background and Burkle's business acumen could help the Dodgers reclaim their place among baseball's elite franchises.

Burkle teamed with franchise icon Mario Lemieux in buying the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins in 1999; the Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 2009. Burkle has pursued the Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals in recent years, according to press reports.

Burkle, 58, has a home in Beverly Hills. Forbes estimates his net worth at $3.2 billion. At least two other local billionaires also have been reported to be preparing bids for the Dodgers: developer Alan Casden, who pursued the team when it was last up for sale, and financier Alec Gores, whose brother Tom bought the NBA's Detroit Pistons earlier this month.

Another NBA owner, Mark Cuban of the Dallas Mavericks, previously has expressed interest in the Dodgers. In an email Friday, Cuban declined to say whether he would be interested in the Dodgers — "They aren't for sale," he wrote — but said he had received numerous messages from Dodgers fans in the three days since Selig acted.

"Between tweets and emails, I couldn't count them all," Cuban wrote.

NBA Thursday Night Play of the Day: Bulls

The Bull and Mavs tonight at the United Center.

The teams sport almost identical records, but the Bulls have an impressive 18-4 record at home.

Can they cover the 3.5 they are giving Dallas?  I say yes.  The Bulls are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. NBA Southwest.

The Bulls aren't sure if Carlos Boozer is going to play in this game, but it shouldn't make a difference with the Bull being at home and Dallas having lost 6 out of their last 7.
