5. Mark Cuban
Let’s play a game. Think of a successful player from the NBA. Got someone in mind? Now, if you were to describe this person in three words, which words would you choose? Arrogant? Brash? Cocky?
Well, in the case of the Dallas Mavericks (NBA champions in 2011), ‘arrogant’, ‘brash’ and ‘cocky’ are far more descriptive of the team’s OWNER than they are of the players themselves. Notoriously larger than life – not to mention extremely excitable – what most people don’t know is that Mark Cuban began his professional career at 12 years old…
His occupation at the time? Selling garbage bags door to door.
Net worth: $3 billion
