DALLAS (AP) Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban pulled an April Fools' gag during a timeout in the second quarter of Tuesday night's game against the New Orleans Hornets, getting into a shoving match with a phony game official.Heh-heh.
Cuban, heavily fined last season for his complaints about officiating, went onto the court during the stoppage in play and began arguing with a man dressed as a game official.
Cuban began shoving the man and was restrained by one of the team's equipment managers before it became apparent that the incident had been staged.
The real officials chuckled at Cuban's antics.
