Good for Cuban… even if this comes with an NBA fine. Which it shouldn’t. Whoever signed an NBA licensing agreement with this company should be the one getting fined.

Everyone knows that these bracelets don’t actually work and are just a marketing scam. The company has even been sued over $50 million dollars by customers claiming false advertising.
