(Slay News) – Billionaire Mark Cuban has shamed the hypocrites in the media for slamming the Trump-endorsed LIV Golf Series.
During an appearance on the “Full Send Podcast” last week, Cuban said:
“There’s a price for everything.
“Here’s the way I look at it from a golfer’s perspective, you know, you bust your ass and you, there’s complete uncertainty.
“You don’t know how much you’re gonna make.
“Maybe you have some sponsors, maybe you’re doing some deals, and that’s great.
“You’re making some money, but you have a limited lifespan in, in your golf career.
“If you’re apolitical, you’re not really into politics one way or the other, and someone offers you 30, 40, 50 million dollars, your family’s more important than what the media’s gonna say about you.”
“You think that scares any other leagues that this is happening like that?” co-host Aaron Steinberg asked Cuban.
“I don’t know that it scares other leagues,” Cuban said.
“Um, but it makes us pay attention. That’s for sure.
“Because you know, who knows what for what other sport or what other, you know, country, whatever it may be that is gonna come in and try to buy recognition.
As Slay News previously reported, NBA legend Charles Barkley is now in talks to join the LIV Golf media team.
Co-host of The Next Round show, Ryan Brown, asked Charles: “You’ve always been super honest with us.
“I’m about to put you on the spot here because you love golf.
“You know, I love golf and there is this rumor I’ve heard from a couple people in the golf world that the LIV tour is coming after you as like a face of their media, like an analyst or something like that.
“Is there any truth to that or is this just rumor?”
“I’m gonna meet with LIV,” Barkley said.
“Oh, so there is some truth to it,” Brown said stunned at the news.
Barkley said: “To be always transparent and honest.
“Um, they called me and asked me, would I meet with them?”
“And I said, yes,” he added.
“Nothing is imminent.
“I actually don’t know everything they want from me or what they technically want me to do.
“But you got to always look at every opportunity that’s available.
“So to answer your question, it’s a hundred percent yes, I’m gonna meet with LIV,” he said.
"The answer to your question is 100% yes. I'm gonna meet with LIV." On today's show, Charles Barkley joined us in studio and confirmed that he will be speaking to Greg Norman about a role with LIV Golf. @NoLayingUp @RiggsBarstool @barstoolsports @GOLF_com @GolfDigest @GolfChannel pic.twitter.com/AOMQJRoKZB
