The Dallas Mavericks are in complete disarray as of late.
There have been tons of reports trickling out to the public about the organization.
As soon as their series with the Los Angeles Clippers ended in a loss, we heard about all of the issues with the current structure of the franchise.
Several people are leaving.
Their franchise player is frustrated and has a quick temper.
They have a guy with no NBA experience trying to tell the head coach who to play.
However, there is one common denominator with all of the issues with this team.
It is the owner of the Mavericks.
Their owner is not a normal one where you barely know their name.
No, the owner is Mark Cuban.
Cuban has his own television show.
He isn’t afraid to have interviews and pop up on sports debate shows.
Transparency is good, but perhaps it is too much in this case.
Cuban is the reason for the issues and here is why.
Everyone Is Leaving The Team
The Mavericks are one of the few teams that hold onto members of the franchise for long periods of time.
However, that has all changed.
Rick Carlisle was the head coach for 13 years and decided it was time to go.
He won them a title in 2011 and was one of the longest-tenured head coaches in the league.
One of the best assistant coaches in the NBA is Jamahl Mosley.
He is a candidate for several head coaching jobs around the league.
In fact, Luka Doncic has a great relationship with him.
We would assume that would lead to him being hired as the head coach.
That did not occur.
Now Mosley has decided that it is best to move on from the organization.
After failing to receive consideration for the HC vacancy, #Mavs assistant coach Jamahl Mosley is expected to part ways with the franchise. He is very close to Luka who preferred him to be HC but the superstar guard avoided meddling in the FO decision-making.

Lastly, Donnie Nelson is one of the longest-tenured members of the Mavericks organization.
He had been there for over 20 years in multiple rules.
Nelson was their President of Basketball Operations.
The 2011 title team was constructed by him.
He is now gone after decades with the team.

Why are all of these key members of the organization leaving one after the other?
Cuban is the most likely culprit for all of their departures.
Cuban Is Not Like Most Owners
Owners tend to blend into the background.
We do know some owners like a Robert Kraft, or Steve Ballmer, but they are not harming the team.
They are around to support and make sure the team is doing well.
Then you have owners, such as Jerry Jones, whom tend to meddle with the product and lose repeatedly.
Cuban has been on both sides.
His early days were very toxic and over the top.
Then during the title run, we saw mild-mannered Cuban.
We might be back to the former iteration of Cuban as owner.
He is not as outlandish and over the top as he once was, but he is too deep in the landscape of the roster.
Teams have general managers for a reason, but Cuban is the one calling the shots.
He is in charge of practically every decision made in the organization.
That is tiring for teams.
Coaches do not want to hear from random people on how to coach.
General managers do not want to hear about who they need to sign.
He has his finger on every aspect possible.
Owners should own and worry about the finances.
Instead, Cuban wants to be in charge with every move, which is ruining his product.NEXT: What Has Gone Wrong With Kristaps Porzingis In Dallas?
